valentine goodies

With the school Valentine’s party quickly approaching I needed to sit down and figure out what I was going to make for the goodie bags. We also need to think about actual Valentines….but I wanted to get the bags out of the way.

Today I picked up a bag of these little glittery wooden hearts at Hobby Lobby (they were $1.99 and 40% off) and simply glued them to mini clothespins which I already owned. I plan to use these clips to clip the tops of the candy bags.

Next the little guy and I set out to make rainbow crayons. This involves using old broken crayons, mini cupcake tins, and some liners. We put ours in the oven for about 10 mins at 350F, probably way too long because they turned out quite muddy. We are going to try shorter times with the next batch. These will be wrapped up for the goodie bags too! I’ll have more ideas on packing soon.

I have some other projects for the bags too but the sun went down before they were finished, so I’ll photograph those soon!

sew busy!

Sorry the blog has been a bit neglected lately with content. I promise some Valentine how-to posts very soon, and a freebie for ya! Meanwhile I’ve been sewing sewing sewing, and have even more to finish. :)
