Are you looking for classroom valentines that are a little less big-box and a little more handmade? This peach ring candy valentine will definitely hit the sweet spot for both young and old and won't make a huge dent on your purse strings either. Afterall, it includes a *free* printable and who doesn't love free?
((Speaking of free, I'm hosting a giveaway for over $100 worth of crafting goodies -- visit Spool and Spoon to enter!))
All you'll need are peachy gummy rings, a container (small mason jars, baby food jars, even plastic baggies), and these peachy keen valentine tags! Download the PDF file here!
1. Print out as many sheets of the printable as you'll need - there are nine tags per page.
2. Use a circle punch or cut out the tags. The peach border is the perfect size for a mason jar lid whereas the patterned part is the exact size of an average baby food jar.
3. Attach to container full of peach rings and BAM - Valentine. Done.
For a finishing touch, I wanted to add a little something extra. I tied brightly colored yarn around the jars. Then, I cut out some tiny peaches and glued those to the yarn strands.
Easy peasy and OH SO CUTE. Just the way I like it.
Seriously, though, it took all of my self control not to eat my way through those gummy pieces of yumminess.
I hope you and your little ones enjoy!
