Valentine’s Day is two days away! Can you believe that? I’m pretty sure we were just talking about Christmas and New Year’s. However I am looking forward to Valentine’s Day! Every year
we do something special for the kids. Last year we had a party a few days before and celebrated with friends. This year we’re keeping it simple, but that hasn’t stopped me from putting together a few Valentine’s Day crafts. Here’s a peek at our Valentine’s Day Party with Martha Stewart Crafts supplies.
It doesn’t get much easier than mini marshmallow pops! To make them I used:
mini strawberry marshmallows
heart paper straws cut in half
I carefully inserted the straw into the mini marshmallows and dipped them into melted CandiQuick then top with sprinkles. These are about 1/3 of the size of a regular marshmallow which are the perfect size if I do say so myself. Just for fun I added tags that I stamped with the Martha Stewart mini wood stamp and heart stickers. I love that the stamps come in a wood crate to hold them all in one place.
I also made tags for their valentine paper straws using a flourish punch and cupcake dimensional stickers.
These stickers are too cute to throw out after our party so I made sure to make them removable from the straw.
I used a permanent foam adhesive dot and slightly wrapped it around the straw. Its strong enough to hold the tag in place but still removable after use. I think I’m going to save it for our Project Life album after we’re done with them.
Last but not least we’re in the process of making a few last minute Valentine cards for grandma and grandpa using the mini Valentine card & sticker set.
