izze sparkling juice valentine …

February 15, 2012

when i woke up this fine valentine’s day, i was going through my mental checklist of things to gather before bringing kids to pre-school and i realized i had totally forgotten to put together a valentine for their teachers.

luckily, i am a hoarder of all sorts of things, so i had a few things on hand to choose from.

i am not a huge fan of soda, but on occasion i like to indulge in a fun izze sparkling juice.  so, i pulled some from the stash, and grabbed a red and white stripy straw from the stash as well.

i always have doilies on hand, so i placed one on the front.  and, did a quick print out that says “You add such a SPARKLE to our classroom!”

this is a fun valentine gift, or it would also make a great teacher gift any day of the year!

i cut out the text on kraft paper with the nesting eyelet circle die cut from lifestyle crafts.  then, i added a little kraft paper party flag insert on the stripy straw as well as a pink nesting heart, and tied the straw on with some bakers twine.  (as always, for a 20% discount of your entire purchase to lifestyle crafts, type ARMELLE at checkout!)

it didn’t take me long to make, but i thought it turned out fun, especially for last minute!

hope you are enjoying your valentines day!

    The idea and the outcome are great! but as someone unfamiliar with Valentine Day's habits (Isreali, Jewish, etc..) I am wondering – is it customary to give your children's teacher a Valentine gift? do other moms do it (or kids?) or is it just you?
    I thought it was about Romantic love, isn't it?
