Valentines day is almost here!!!

I LOVE Valentines day! My 2 girls allow me to be Mom that day and do what I do :)  Make them stuff for gifts! I hope they never think their too old to be my baby girls...

This morning I knew I was heading into Reno so I wanted to make sure I got all her goodies done! As you know... I'm a fan of Pinteres and I've found some great things to make off of it for Valentines Day.

First thing I did was make Rice Krispy Treats Kisses. I threw in some red lips I bought for some cupcakes, melted some pink and brown candy melts.  Wrap them suckers up in tin foil and you have a kiss!
While that was setting up in the fridge, I melted the rest of the chocolates and squoze them into molds and made these...
But I needed something to put them in so I made quick cones out of 6x6 paper
Next, I had some candy so I wanted to pretty them up. First was the Dove's Chocolate. I found this pretty printable from Tweet Bags from Darling Doodles.
 
Don't the birds look like die cuts?  Simply print, cut, fold and staple them over a basic sandwich bag! Easy right?

Then I had some M&Ms in V-Day colors. Filled up a couple of tubes and printed out some of these printable's from Angela over at Anything but Perfect. I punched them out and strung them up!



There were so many 'things' I ended up with including a mini slinky, a pad of valentine paper for the fridge, water color paint by number with Tinker Bell and fart putty, that I had to shrink wrap it because I also remembered I got them both a set of PJ's! LOL  Unfortunately when we got to Reno I remembered that I didn't bring the framed Subway Art  :(  Well, I guess I'll have to make it up there and see my Sunshine on Valentines day after my dinner with Hubby :)
I had a good time making these and they were all so, so easy! I used the cards I made here and here.
