Valentine's Day Treats & Teacher Gift

I woke up super early this morning (4:30 a.m.) and started working on Valentine's Day goodies for Andrew friends at school and in playgroup. I was so excited when his Vday cards came in yesterday I had to start working on the coordinating treat bag.

Here are the two together that he will hand out to his friends.

The treat bags were very simple to make. They are small glassine bags I got from Michaels and filled them with some kisses and tootsie rolls then topped it with a blue topper made from my Spellbinder die.
I created little labels " Happy {heart} Day" that coordinated with the card I created. I printed them out and again used my Spellbinder dies to make a circle and a red scallop. Then I tied some really cute hot pink and red polka dot ribbon through the top, added a "from: andrew" tag cut yet again from my Spellbinder dies. Are you noticing a trend here?
I finished it off with a red pipe cleaner that I curled up with a pencil and a small heart button. Voila! Easy but cute Valentine's Day treats.

DRUMROLL PLEASE!!!!!!!............................................ Check out the teacher gifts I'm going to make. I wanted to post a photo of one I created but I haven't had a chance to make them yet and I wanted to give you enough time to create it yourself if you would like to.

Isn't it adorable????? It's called a cup cake take a long. It has a cake mix and sprinkles (in little tubes that is WAY cool), and frosting. Go here for all the directions, supplies and more detailed pictures.
