OSAT Blog Hop – All You Need is Love 

Valentine Fun for First Grade

Do you need a cute and quick kids Valentine?  Well, I totally forgot that today is my son’s First Grade Valentine Party and I had NOTHING ready as of yesterday afternoon.  Then, I decided I needed a cute non-candy Valentine for his First Grade teacher.  Read on for details!  

Project #1 – Love is in the Air! Head 3×3 Note Cards

Lift Me Up Kids Valentine with Air Head Candy by Pam Staples

While at Aqua Zumba Tuesday morning, I remembered that my son needed 22 Valentines for his class party.  OOPS!  I had no idea what I was going to make.  This meant a trip to the grocery store and a search of Pinterest.  I came up with a few ideas but nothing was “clicking” so I ended up with some Hershey Kisses and Air Head Candy.  

A Bunch of Kids Valentines with Air Head Candy by Pam StaplesI knew I wanted a cute, fun Kids Valentine!  The Lift Me Up Stamp Set was perfect for this project with the fun Hot Air Balloon because KIDS love balloons and then there is the fun play of words with the Air Head candy.  Even though I only needed 22 cards, I made extras because I’m certain I’ll find a use for them!

Love is in the Air! Head 3×3 Note Card Details:

  • Whisper White Card Base cut to 6″x 3″, scored and folded in half.
  • Whisper White top layer is cut to 2-1/4″
  • Using the Sealed With Love Stamp Set, use the “Swoosh” stamp and stamp with So Saffron three times on the card layer.
  • Die Cut the Cloud using the Up & Away Thinlits
  • Stamp the Hot Air Balloon with Dapper Denim Ink and die cut with coordinating Up & Away Thinlit die.
  • Using Real Red Classic Ink, stamp the sentiment on the card layer in the bottom right corner leaving room for the “head” to be added.
  • Stamp the “head” using the Labeler Alphabet Stamp Set with Real Red ink. Fussy cut the “head.” 
  • Assemble the 3 x 3 Note Card by attaching the cloud with Stampin’ Dimensionals just above the sentiment then add the Hot Air Balloon with more Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Add the stamped “head” to the top layer.
  • Attach the top card layer to the card base with more Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Project #2 – Sending Love EOS Lip Balm Box

For my 3D project, I’m sharing this cute box that holds an EOS Lip Balm.  This box is inspired by Pootles. It really is easy and quick to make.  While shopping for the candy, I grabbed several EOS Lip Balms in the checkout lane.  Caleb has 2 teachers and 1 teachers assistant.  I enjoy creating fun gifts for them to enjoy.

  • BOX – 6×6″ Scored at 2″ on ALL sides then cut out each corner section of the box.  For additional interest, use the corner rounder to round the corners of each box wing.
  • LID – 4×4″ Scored at 15/16″ on ALL sides (I scored just shy of the 1″ mark so the lid fit better).
  • INNER – 1-7/8 x 5-1/2″ Scored at 1-7/8, 2-3/8, 4-1/4, 4-3/4″
  • Panels for inside and lid all measure the same – 1-7/8″ Square
  • Extra panels for inside measure 1-3/4″ Square.
  • I used the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack for the box decorations and the box is tied shut using the Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack.
