Valentine Pencil Treats
I have a theme going this week of showing non-candy valentine treats. I had made some Halloween pencil treats back in October for a craft fair. Of course when I stopped at the dollar store and spotted these cute pencils I had to buy a pack.
Again I am featuring the paper and stamp sets from the Filled with Love promotion. If you purchase this bundle (stamp set and patterned papers) you receive a free pack of bitty buttons valued at $4.95. The patterned papers are Real Red and Pretty in Pink so I made a pencil treat using both colors.
I surfed around for a tutorial and landed at youtube where I found a tutorial from Kerry's Paper Crafts - youtube name pantala40. I am all about the visual tutorials these days. These are very easy to put together even if you wanted to do one for each classmate if you have school aged kids. Kerry's sample had one pencil and a lollipop so that is another option for this treat holder.
