Yesterday was the boys' first-ever Valentine exchange. So that's all we gave. Just a Valentine. In my defense, nobody ever told me you're supposed to give a little piece of candy, tattoo, sticker or tiny toy to each of your little school friends. My bad. At least all A&W's friends got super cute Valentine monsters, the product of my first real project on my new Silhouette Cameo. (SQUEAL!)
A machine was going to do most of the work, but I wanted to have the boys involved somehow so I decided to have them help me decorate the paper for the back of the cards. I made some potato stamps with hearts, X's and O's and we went at it. Wes was all about stamping. Andrew, not so much.
|Can you tell who stamped what?|
Final product, these adorable monster Valentines! Sweetness without the cavities! (You're welcome, parents of A&W's classmates!)
|Andrew's special Valentine for his brother.|
|Wes checks out the monster. Check out his hand-stamped hearts, X's and O's on the back!|
Hope you had a wonderful day with your little loves!
