I know it's a little late... but here are the cute Valentine's I made for my kids to give out to their friends! I just took a Top Note (punched with my Big Shot!) and stamped the heart and sentiment on the front, scored and folded it, glued in a Kit Kat bar, punched a hole for some curling ribbon and voila!! :) Easy, cute and fun!!

Twilight Journal

Jess has a friend who is totally into the Twilight series and she had a birthday... So I thought I'd make her a fun Twilight journal.
I just printed out a couple pics from the internet and modpodged them onto a notebook that I had covered with cute patterned paper. Jess put the hearts on and I made the heart covered in sequins for some sparkle! I also covered a pen in micro-beads to attach to it! :) Pretty fun project! I wanted to keep it for me!

One More Valentine!

This one was a super fun one to make!! I love hearts and I just punched a bunch of different ones out of some scrap papers and sewed them to the Close to Cocoa card with my sewing machine!! LOVE the way it turned out! The sentiment, from Seasonal Sentiments, was stamped in Chocolate Chip ink and I rounded the corners. Ta DA!
