First Grade Valentine Favor

This one just makes me smile! Hopefully it will do the same thing for the first grade class that will receive it. AND it is so simple to create. They are simply sleeves for the Conversation Hearts.

Here are the supplies that I used:

Cardstock: Real Red
                   Whisper White
                   Smokey Slate
Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack (137779)
Inks:           Real Red
                   Momento Black
Stamp sets: Kind Koala (134360)
                   That's the Ticket (wood-131946 or clear-128075)
Punches and dies: Heart thinlits (125599)
                   Tickets Duo Builder (126883)

And here is how I made it:

Cut the real red cardstock to 6 1/8"x 3 1/2", scored at 7/8", 2 5/8", 3 1/2", and 5 1/4". Place double stick tape on one of the 7/8" ends. Wrap this around the box of candy and seal. This will insure a good fit for the box. Cut a piece of designer series paper at 1 5/8"x 3 7/8". Adhere this to the front of the sleeve. Cut out a small heart from the thinlits (or how ever many you need). You can leave them as they are, or I ran mine through my tiny hearts embossing folder (retired). Ink up the Koala, only, and stamp on the Smokey Slate, cutting it out. Tape/glue the body to the DSP and add the heart under the top paws and over the bottom paws. With Real Red, stamp the sentiment on whisper white and punch it out with the ticket punch. Mount this onto real red, 1 5/8"x 7/8". Use dimensionals to add it to the top of the DSP. I added Crystal Effects to the muzzle and black glitter glue to the eyes. And that is it!!!

Hope you have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!!!
