A Handmade Valentine

It all started with a little paper and glue... well actually, that's how everything starts around here!

My son will be celebrating Valentine's Day next week at school. Anyone who knows me knows that I love looking for ways to be creative with my son. So I got out the cricut and let the fun begin.
He had a great time assembling the pieces. It's an event to work with him. He is so focused on what he is doing and getting that task completed, that he gets a little off track sometimes. I think they turned out pretty cute.

Here is the finished product. Pretty basic, but it got the job done. I doodled around the edges just to add a little extra interest to them. Tomorrow I'll buy some candy to staple to the back of them. A perfect little treat for his class mates.
Later this week I'll make one of my goodie jars for his teacher. Something pretty, to sit on her desk, or take home, filled with yummy candy!
