I have spent the last month browsing all these cute Valentines ideas and here it is just a day away and I guess it is time to get my butt in gear and get them done. Nothing like waiting till the last minute!
This is what we made
I had the grand idea of making these fun Dum Dum Flowers from Family Fun
But when I got to my Walmart at 10 o'clock Saturday night they were completely out of Dum Dum suckers. HOW RUDE! Since it was so late, I didn't want to go driving around town trying to find some. So I improvised and we made these instead.
Lifesavers individually wrapped candies
SU! Sizzix Bigz L Fun Flowers Die
lots of paper scraps I had on hand
glue stick/glue dots
SU! Petals Punch for the leaf
The whole family got into making them, and we set it up assembly line style.
We used these 3 flowers from the Fun Flowers Die
Then stacked them on top of each other using a glue stick to adhere
I curled the edges of this flower just for the picture but there was no way I was going to do that to all 100+ flowers
Then used a glue dot on the back of the wrapped and candy and put it in the center of the flower and glued the leaf behind the flower.
I thought they turned out pretty cute for being very much last minute. I think they would have been even cuter if I had made sure to coordinate all of the paper better. But this was a great use for scraps plus I knew the kids would just take the candy off and throw the flowers away anyways.
