I’ll be honest and say that over half of my daughter’s candy from Valentine’s Day gets thrown in the trash eventually. She gets so many treats that she doesn’t even want to eat them all! Don’t get me wrong, I love a good piece of candy now and then, but the amount of sweets passed around on this holiday is nothing short of a dentist’s dream. Last year we decided to pass out non-candy class valentines that would hopefully last longer than candy and would definitely be more healthy. We made Punch Balloon Class Valentines with custom stamped gift tags!
Anyway, off my Square Punch Board soapbox…😂
I punched twenty-six 2 1/2 x 3 inch rectangles in no time, and then used my Tag Punch Board to make perfectly even and centered tags with holes for tying onto the punch balloons.
Then I prepared my custom valentine tag sentiment with my Precision Press Advanced stamping tool along with the Typeset Stamping Block accessories, and stamped the same sentiment on all 26 tags in different colors.
I finished off the valentines by tying the tags onto the tops of the punch balloons with a length of twine.
These non-candy valentines provided hours of fun for my daughter and her classmates. They were a big hit! Less sugar and lots of active fun? That’s a win-win for this mom for sure.
