I found an “I ‘Wheelie like you” Valentine printable a while back and knew I wanted to make the idea my own.
I prefer my Valentine’s to use the kids pictures, so I created those first. I used their Valentine pictures to create bag topper using Picasa. It is just a collage picture pile on a white background. I added the border and the text in Picnik, I love my free photo editing programs.
I had a coupon for 100 free prints from Costco, so we printed them as 4x6 photos. We bought toy cars from a dollar store.
I added a car to a sandwhich bag, folded it over, and stapled the bag topper into place.
We made 18 for Caitlin’s class,
and 8 for Sean and his buddies in the infant room.
I was thrilled with how they came out!
I also found these Cars lunch bags at the dollar store. Caitlin loves to help me cook, so we made cookies. She rolled them in the sprinkles.
We delivered bags of cookies to teachers, co-workers, and the kids’ great-grandparents.
I love projects like this! I have a board on Pinterest ready to collect inspiration for next year!
