Sweet, Simple and Fast Class Treats

Hi everyone!  How is life treating you?  I don't know about you but I am soooo ready for a glimpse of Spring!!  The sun has been shining the last couple of days which has been a nice treat but as soon as the snow melts it quickly becomes a sheet of ice.  Brrrr and Grrrr!

Enough of that! I have a 14 year old boy and a set of twins.  My twins have close to 30 kids in each class so that's alot of valentine treats to make.  I know some of you wonderful mothers hand make your kids' treats but that is alot!!! My 14 year has a smaller class and he really isn't interested in handing out valentines so I made these quick treats for him to take to his class.  Now, keep in mind, he is 14 and a boy, so frill and glitz is not his thing.  Which actually took the pressure off of me to make them extravagant.  He didn't even know I was making them because he would probably ask me not to  Now that they are done, he is okay with it.  Its the thought that counts right?

I used DCWV 8x8 Formal and Wedding Stack that I got at Joann's for $3.20!  It was on clearance and then I had an additional 20% coupon compliments to Joy from Obsessed with Scrapbooking. I cut them to 4x4 squares. I used my ATG gun to glue the sides together and one end. Crimped with my Fiskars Crimper Filled with Valentine M&Ms.  Cut the tags using the Tags, Bags and More Cartridge. Stamped with sentiment stamp I bought at Michaels for $1.  Viola! quick valentine treats!

Thanks for stopping by. Let me know what you think.  What would you have done to dress it up more?
