Valentines for the kiddo's

So I am getting a head start this year and making the kids Valentine's. I thought if I started now I would have plenty of time for making, filling and labeling them. I was truely surprised at how long it actually took me to make and put these together.
I made the pillow box with the Wedding Cartridge and also cut the scalloped hearts from that cartridge. I inked with a bic marker around the red hearts and attached them to my pillow boxes. I found a $1.00 "happy valentines day" stamp at Michaels and used that to stamp all the boxes. We wrote to: each child's name and on the back wrote from: my boys. I really like the way they came out and I know the kids will also. Oh and by the way 2 pieces of candy fit in the pillow...a spongebob lick n stick and a package of conversation hearts. Even better!
And this is what I made for the teachers. I think this came out so super cute!! I cut the heart box from tags, bags, boxes and more and used my gypsy to cut the heart out. I filled this with chocolate nuggets that I covered in matching paper. I know the teachers will LOVE this!!
