matchbook valentines

Now that you've got your Valentine cards printed, are you ready to add a little SUGAR?!?

what you'll need:
  • black cardstock
  • double sided tape (or other adhesive)
  • stapler
  • valentine fun dips
step one... Trim your cardstock to 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch strips. Then, with your paper horizontal, score it at the 3 1/2" and 7" marks.

step two... Attach your Valentine on the far left block, then fold at your score lines and insert the Fun Dip inside. Staple it in on both sides.

step three... Place a piece of double sided tape to hold the top flap down.

 Or... you could just add a piece of cardstock to the Valentine and have your child sign their name on the back.

  2. those are adorable...I already have the fun dips. I better get some supplies in the house...that would be a prefect snow day craft, seeing how they;re predicting this huge blizzard here in Michigan. Thanks for the idea!!!!

  3. Love everything!! How about your Christmas banner posted in Valentine colors to match your subway art...just an idea!

  4. okay that is a GREAT idea!!!! Wonder if I can find those candies here in Canada..

  5. What will you ladies think up next?

  6. what is the size of the cardstock on the front? i assume its about 3X4? thanks! my friends all think i'm famous because you commented on my blog lefthandedlaney.blogspot.com :) thanks again for that!

  7. i meant what size is the (photo)valentine?

  8. This is such a personal idea for Valentines Day. I love it!

  9. i love this! it's so much better than buying the already made v-day cards!!

  10. Cute idea! I'd be afraid my little one would try to tear the fun dip out, ripping it and spilling powder everywhere. I might opt to staple on the edges and not the wrapper.

  11. Thanks for all the cute ideas! I am featuring them on my blog - http://orangepeanut.com
