Homemade Valentines

For Sydney's little preschool Valentines party we decided to make treats & homemade Valentines.

We used this candy recipe for mint chocolate & this lip with stick mold.


Then we wrapped them in these cute red foils:


Then I took cute pictures of Syd & then PhotoShop-ed them into little cards:

Then I cut the cards out, exacto-knifed the spot to slide the sucker into & sealed them in plastic treat bags (I used address labels to seal the bag with each kids name on it) :

THE FINAL PRODUCT (we made ones with just Syd for her class & both the kiddos for the grandparents,other friends, etc):


P.S. Past Valentines 2008, 2009, & 2010
