My Kids’ Valentine Craft Project

This past Saturday, I did a kids’ class at our local library. I had nine kids come with a parent, and the kids ranged in age from 7-11. We made a quick and easy Valentine’s Day craft, which included a card, small box of Hershey Kisses, and a small gift bag (not shown). It was so much fun!

Most of the supplies used in the class are current Stampin’ Up! products. I did use two retired products, but given the project, I thought they would be best to use. They are the Heart Punch used on the front of the card, and the Bow Builder Punch, which we used to make the little bow on top of the box. Otherwise, everything is current product!

The cards were made using the Whisper White Notecards and Envelopes. The kids were allowed to choose which background papers they wanted to use from the All My Love Designer Series Paper. They could also choose which colors they wished to use for the sentiments and hearts. I also brought a bunch of rhinestones and pearls for them to embellish as they wished!

The Tiny Treat Boxes were decorated by wrapping a 1 x 9 inch piece of DSP around the box and securing it on the bottom with a piece of tape. Each box holds 15 Hershey Kisses. The kids could mix and match the papers for the wrapper and bow, as well as the ink color for the tag. Some did everything in the same design, while others used as many different papers as they could. The best part though was that they all looked great because everything coordinated!

Measurements for this project are as follows:

Pre-cut notecard base: 3-1/2 x 5 inches

DSP background layer: 3-1/4 x 4-3/4 inches

DSP strip behind sentiment: 3-1/4 x 1-1/4 inches

Whisper White Sentiment piece: 3 x 4 inch piece (use to cut both the 2 inch circle for the card, as well as the 1-1/8 inch scallop circle for the box tag)

Flirty Flamingo/Lovely Lipstick cardstock piece for heart: 2 x 3 inches

The kids had a great time, and so did I! I work with kids in my day job, and I love working with them! I am hoping to do another class with them for Easter. If I do, I will be sure to post that project as well!

Thanks for checking in today! Have a great day!
