School Valentines and Other Projects

It's time for Valentines!

Our school made little valentines to send to classmates.
These are just a small sampling of what was given away. There were many with shiny car stickers for the boys, and some clever students even made pop-up decorations for the hearts.
 We used craft papers, stickers and clip art from our stash, and glitter heart stickers from the dollar store. We layered heart-shaped papers cut with the Cuttlebug machine,
 Each one had a loop string for hanging somewhere to display.

A little kitchen project for a Valentine's Tea:  little piped chocolate almond hearts, with some "kisses" thrown in.
Another project: taking an old sweater and making stuffed heart pillows. Here they are awaiting trimming. I am not quite sure what to trim them with yet-- ribbon roses? buttons? Or leave them squeezably plain? Just  to look at them adds warmth to chilly February days!
