Handmade Valentines

I have loved making handmade valentines over the years. Usually I just dump a bunch of crap on my table and go to town. You know, all my odds and ends embellishments, paper and material in the pink and red family.

This year I splurged on a stamp set and these treat cups. I thought I would test them out and see how to use them. I bought enough treat cups to make valentines for both my kids classes. I haven't decided how I 'm going to make them, I need something a little less time consuming, but I like the look.

This is my attempt to make them a little more boyish. I don't know if my son will go for it.
If your interested in getting some of your own there might still be time, check with the Stamp Princess Here.

Here is a list of parties I link to.

I've never seen the treat cups....how cute! I love the sewing on the cards. The boy card might still be a little girly, but since there are m&m's in them, I'll bet no one even notices. Lisa~ www.livingmybestlifeii-lisa.blogspot.com
