Classroom Valentine’s Day Treats

100_4399     Valentine’s Day is the sweetest excuse to create cute little treats!  Like we need excuses…right?  Of course, I don’t just stop with the classroom, I also have to do a little something for the ladies I work with in the PTA.  Therefore, I’m always on the lookout for something that can be mass produced…quick and easy! 

100_4389     I’ve seen these adorable lollipop treat holders around for years.  I never even looked for a tutorial but came up with my measurements simply by measuring the height and width of 100_4371my lollipop.  The Simply Scored tool made really quick work of the task of scoring.  I could score the entire length of a sheet of card stock and then cut it down to the individual widths I needed.  It worked out real nice!  

100_4374     As with any mass produced project, I like to cut, prep and punch all the pieces and parts I will need to complete my project.  It may seem a bit of a mess but it is an organized mess and can be easily thrown into a baggie or basket to set aside for later assembly. 

100_4383     I had to make a little something special for the classroom teacher as well.  She will receive the altered yogurt cup.  Yes, you read that right!  This was a yogurt cup with the lid that contains granola crunchies.  Wish I could just come out and tell you which one but I know you’ll know the ones I’m talking about :)  (If you really want to know, you can call me.)  It makes a lovely 100_4378altered container and holds some yummy chocolates just for teacher or any other special person in your life :)  The lid is decorated to match with the classroom treats.

     Adam addressed and signed the back of each treat holder.  They are all ready to be delivered to his classroom friends.  I’m sure they will love them!  My PTA friends loved theirs :)  Who wouldn’t love a little something sweet?100_4410
