Lollipop Card Valentine

These instructions were using our MME Valentine kit from last year but would work great with any papers, and make a fantastic Valentine for kids to take to school ;0)

What you will need

2 pcs of patterned paper or cardstock

You can make your pocket heart card smaller than the origingal template from Paper Zone. Make a copy and reduce by 25%, 50% etc. This is how I made the smaller version for the lollipop holder.

Cut out the template and place on the patterned paper of your choice, trace around and cut out. Now do this again for the inside lining of the heart pocket.

Next step glue the two pieces of patterned paper of cardstock together--the backs of the patterned paper touching--with the patterns facing out on each side.

Fold up the "petals" and use a small amount of adhesive on the overlap area to hold the heart pocket together, not to much or you will stick the flaps to the back side of the pocket and won't be able to stuff it with goodies

Now you can embellish as desired. I added a button from my button collection and tied a small bow from scrap ribbon pcs I had lying around.

Now you can make the card base or use a premade card base, use another small pc of the coordinating patterned paper for the top layer of the card.
The great thing about this project the size can be large,medium, small so you can alter the card size to the supplies you have on hand.
Assemble the card base, then attach the heart pocket to the front of the card! Now you can fill it with lots of fun stuff! It's perfect for giftcards, small love notes,
paper flower bouqets, even the square chocolate mints will fit nicely in the pocket!

Pocket Card Variation

Reduce the template to about 40% of the orignal size. If you're using the standard school size/child lollipops) Trace and cut out two of these pieces.
glue the two pieces together with back sides touching--put lollipop in the center, stick facing down. Now attach the "petal" flaps to each other and it also helps to put a
small glue dot on the lollipop so that it stays secure in the packaging! Now you can embellish by tying a ribbon onto the lolly stick!

Valentines Day projects

I thought maybe if I got a head start this year I may be able to get a few projects finished before Valentines came around, so I was browsing some of last years stuff and thought I would share ;0)
Nugget Bags: These are super easy and quick I made them for a bunch of people last year.
Supplies: Clear Bag I used the ziploc bags your embellies come in with the AS kits, Ribbon, Stamps and or stickers, Cardstock, Pattern Paper, Mega Punch circle or heart I used both
1. Trim your pattern paper to fit your nugget bars I think it is just over an inch
2. Adhere your pattern paper to the nuggets and then put them in the ziploc bag
3. Trim a piece of cardstock that is the same size as your ziploc bag
4. Punch out your circle or heart
5. Stamp or put your stickers on your heart or circle
6. Make your flap by placing your heart or circle on top of the cardstock and folding the edge over slightly adhere this to the back side of the cardstock
7. Place your ziploc with the nuggets in in under the flap, punch two holes and thread with ribbon and top it off with a bow. You can also run a small line of adhesive on the cardstock to stick the ziploc bag to, this will help keep it in place a little better

You can make these as fancy or as plain as you want but everyone loved getting them ;0)

Altered Lunch Tin and card: My plan for this was to fill it with assorted cards for DD preschool teacher but I never got around to giving it away

This was for DD to take to preschool to get all her Valentines goodies in...too bad little sister tore it apart before the day ever got here ;0)

Enjoy and if you have any questions please let me know. I am going to be working on my Valentines projects over the next week or so and when they are done I will share more. Feel free to link us to your fave Valentines day goodies
