Straw Valentines

Reader Submission for the Pinstrosiversary Challenge:
The pin
When you click on it:

Description: Valentine, you make me Loopy! All at Walmart: Loopy Straws in the birthday supply isle, 6 for .97, Pretzels bags by the Wilton Cake supplies, scrapbook paper, Avery round 2" labels in office supply.

I wanted to make something fun for my one year old son’s daycare Valentine’s Day Party.  They have rules that any food item has to be prepackaged with the ingredient list on it AND one year olds don’t really need candy…so I turned to Pinterest to find a non-food something or other!

I thought this pin would be a winner and was super cute to boot!  Problem is I am a Target shopper (5% Red Card….oooh yea!) and had a little different options than the description said.  Straws were easy…they came in a pack of 12.  Bonus!  I decided on just regular party sacks rather than Wilton pretzel ones, mostly because I had no clue where to even look at Target! Haha!  I knew I had some fun paper at home and since he is a boy I didn’t want something toooo girly! J  I was sad that Target didn’t have round labels, those looked much better on the original.  But I could use the “regular” Avery labels for other things, so I threw them in the cart!

I did change the saying up some.  The straws I got weren’t the curly/loppy kind….so we went from “You Drive Me Loopy” to “You Drive Me Crazy”!  Get it….CRAZY straw! J!

Overall I think they are fun.  My son loves them…..he was a little mad he didn’t get ALL of them but there were a few left overs he got to show off to Daddy while I was crafting!

Valentine’s we made
