"My Nephew's Valentine's"


I made these for my nephew to pass out at preschool. My plan was to cut, score, and decorate them and send them to my sister back in Minnesota and she could add the candy. That was the plan. I had them done for about a week now and I kept looking at them just sitting there with out candy. I couldn't help it. I had to finish them. They are sort of boy colors so I think he will feel comfortable passing them out. I can always make my girls treats girly pink.

Here are the directions. I used the Scor-Pal to score these. It is so fast to do them. It literally took 3 minutes to score 25 of these. I scored the paper while it was still 8 1/2 x 11 and then cut it. If you don't have a Scor-Pal you have to get one. It ROCKS!!

Cut the cardstock 8 1/2 x 3. Sore at 5 inches and 1 inch. Decorate the front, attach the candy with a staple and close. You might want to put another score line next to the 5 inch scored line. They didn't close like I wanted them to. I think it was because there was a lot of air in the M&M package so it made it a little thick.

Stamps: Happy Heart
Paper: Brocade Blue, Orchid Opulence, Whisper White
Ink: Orchid Opulence
Accessories: Scor-Pal Mega Scallop Square, Stapler, Mini M&M's
