Valentine Treats

Before we start Show and Tell,  there are a few things I need to clear up!

First, I DO NOT make my own bread dough! We buy Rhodes Frozen Roll Dough (or similar off-brand) and just un-thaw a few rolls when we need them. We use it to make hamburger buns, breadsticks, and the kids LOVE to make their own mini pizzas.  Sorry for any confusion about me being Mother of the Year/THE Domestic Diva! *giggle*

Second, I DID NOT design the kids' valentines. I purchased a digital kit at Heather Ann Designs. It is called "Love Bird Treat Set." It came with treat toppers, candy bar wrappers, rolo wrappers, lolli-pop covers, treat boxes, cards and valentines. Pretty much all you have to do is print them out.  For the boys,  I  resized the treat topper to 4x6 in PhotoShopElements and added their picture. Then I had them printed at WalMart. Lily REFUSED to allow me to add her photo to her treats so this is what her's looked like:

The clear bags are 4"x6" and I got them at a local craft store. I folded the photos in half and stapled them to the treat bags. Easy Peasy!

About 80 completed treat bags.

For the teachers, I printed out candy bar wrappers and rolo wrappers on 8.5x11 photo paper.


Have a Great Weekend!!

These are very nice. I guess this is one of the good reasons for school being out all last week.

Girl, you put me to shame. At Bella's school they like it as easy as possible so the kids can hand out there own valentine's without getting names in the wrong bag, etc., so ours were pretty lame-o compared to yours :o) Bella did write her name on them all, which is good for 4 years old! Oh and I did bake yummy sugar cookies for her class - that counts for something right? I wish I were cool like you!
