I dig you Valentine Shovels
I decided a while back that this was going to be the Valentine's for Kaylee's class this year, so I had my family looking for shovels when they marked them down after last summer. They were able to find enough red shovels for these. I think they turned out so cute! I made 23 of these shovels and the little buckets I put them in came from the Target dollar area.
I started out by with the small plastic storage bags from Hobby Lobby and cut the top zip lock part off. I then added five candy hearts and a little notebook to them and tied it with a ribbon.
Next, to make the tags, I used the Storybook Cartridge to cut a tag out in two sizes (red glitter for the background and white for the top layer). I then printed the sentiment on the computer and taped the cricut cut over the sentiment and reprinted it directly onto my cuts. Finally, I added a small red button to the tags.
Now, I punched a hole in the top of these and used another piece of ribbon to attach them and the bag of candy to the shovel. I also added a couple of large glue dots to the back of the candy bags to make sure they stay securely on the shovels.
I am entering these into the following challenge:
