Valentine's Card Class

I had a Valentine's Card Class today, the ladies made 4 cards and 2 candy butterflies.  Actually, one of the ladies made 3 butterflies so each of her 3 children could get one carefully placed in their backpacks on Valentine's Day to let them know their mom was thinking about them.

These projects were actually CASEd, I found so many great Valentine's project ideas I couldn't resist!  Mary Brown had the butterfly on her blog.  It is just 2 of the Butterflies cut from the Butterfly die, tied together with Baker's Twine and a heart shaped candy adhered with Stiky Strip.  I knew I would need to use an adhesive that would hold the heavy candy on and the Sticky Strip does a great job!

The cards both use a piece of the Sale-a-Bration free paper.  I really like the pack of paper, I kind of hate not to use both sides!  Notice the pleated pink ribbon on the middle card?  It comes pleated so it is quick as well as beautiful.  The Crumb Cake ribbon on the other card had to be hand gathered around the back of the heart.  It wasn't difficult to do but took more time than adding a piece of the pleated ribbon would have taken. 

I'm working on some Valentine's treats to send the grandkids.  I reckon I'll get them posted before Valentine's Day so you can use the ideas if you want to, I'll just ask my daughters not to let the kids see the pictures before they open their treats!
