Valentine goodies

My son is in third grade and this is the first year his class has had a valentine exchange! For whatever reason, it's not been allowed in his past classes (envision me rollin' my eyes!). So when I found out he could do that this year, I was quick to jump in with a stamping idea. And - surprise, surprise - my son actually said "ok."! So I had to come up with a quick and easy project that was boy-ish enough for him to like. And here's the final project:

Aren't they just adorable?! So how do you make these fabulous little goodies? It's just a wrap made from a 2" x 6-1/4" piece of cardstock. Score it at at 1" and 3" and- 4-1/4" and VOILA! Inside, we attached a miniature Milky Way bar with double-sided tape and stamped "Wild About You". Easy, peasy!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY to you and your loved ones!

Stamps: Wild About You
Cardstock: Real Red, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: 1-1/4" circle punch, 1-3/8" circle punch
