Happy Valentine's Day

There are only 2 classroom parties each year at my child's elementary school - Halloween and Valentine's (Kindergarten is another story - they party nearly every day!), so both tend to be a big deal.  So, this year I volunteered to make the treat bags for the entire 3rd grade (62 kids)!  Oh my, what was I thinking?!  But, I got it done in January and thought they turned out really cute.  Here's the treat bag:
They all used different papers from the same Bo Bunny collection.  There is a tiny white bag inside the paper.  I used my friends SU stamp and cardstock from my stash to create the sentiment.  The ribbon is from my favorite monthly ribbon club at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and I made the handle for the ribbon tie with my SU Word Window punch.

The teachers at my daughter's school LOVE my peanut butter cookies (see 12/28/11 post for photos of cookies and the recipe!), so I always give those as gifts in some cute container.  Here's something I found in the $1 aisle at Target and just added some tissue paper to.  Really, it's the contents they want!


  1. Hi Allison, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  2. WOW! Wherever did you get such a cute idea and however did you get them all finished! LOL

  3. Oh yes, my crafty friend Pam C in TX gave me the idea and then helped me finish them all at a crop in January! THANKS, PAM!
