Welcome back to Day Two of Penni & Lyssa's Valentine Adventures, 2021 Edition! We're bringing you another crafty BFF blog series from super COLD Wisconsin to brighten your week and give you some quick and easy holiday ideas.Be sure to look back at yesterday's Day One post, and click here to see other "Misc Holidays" projects & past blog series!
Today's theme is CHOCOLATE!
Hot chocolate, anyone? What better way to send off your loved ones or meet them at the door after school than to hand them a cute decorated cup of cocoa. Use punched hearts on glue dots, or even draw fun messages with a red Sharpie! These little cups make great co-worker Valentine's, too. Add a lip balm, gift card, tea bags or funny magnet if you want--just don't forget to put a piece of chocolate in there!
Now that we're onto my favorite topic, here's some fun chocolate-themed cards that would work any time of the year--but especially for a "gal-entine" for your girlfriends who aren't in a relationship during this holiday! I'm a firm believer that Valentines are for everyone, not just couples, but make it about chocolate and you're on safe soil no matter what's going on in your friends' lives.
I had a lot of fun coloring my chocolates with a variety of Stampin' Blends alcohol markers in Cinnamon Cider, Soft Suede, Bronze and Espresso.
"When you care enough to send the very best... CHOCOLATE!" Use the Nothing's Better Than stamp set and dies to proclaim you love them more than even chocolate... or coffee, or cookies. Show them exactly how much with a Mini Pizza Box full of chocolates, or a gift certificate for a chocolate-making class hosted by a local chocolatier.
And we can't forget about the kids! In need of quick classroom treats? Penni shared this "sweet" idea for a heart pocket make with two large scalloped ovals.
Clever, cute, and just about the right amount of work for a kid's valentine, since we know they're just going to rip into it anyway!
Now that we've got your Valentine cards and gifties ready, it's time to dive into some quick & adorable home decor! Join Penni and me tomorrow for our final blog series day and see what we've got up our sleeve!
