Cupid Corn

***This was featured on Crafting 'till Midnight!!

I have been busy doing all sorts of Valentines crafts for school parties and gifts for teachers and what not...I just wanted to share Cupid Corn with you!! This stuff is soo good!!I happened to have a tons of popcorn boxes that I got from JoAnn's and hole punched a hole at every scallop. Then weaved the ribbon through. On the front, I had some cute stickers I stuck on the front and BAM!! Quick and easy teacher gift!
All put together. Just get some cellophane, wrap it up and tie with cute ribbon!
Here is the back so you can see the weaving.

Cupid Corn

1 bag of popcorn...no butter or light butter
Almond bark...5-6 squares
M&M's
pink chocolate disks
sprinkles

Pop the popcorn. Melt down the white chocolate. Mix the popcorn and chocolate together and slowly add the M&M's and sprinkles. Lay out mixture on Parchment paper. I added some more sprinkles just for good measure;) Melt about 10 disks in a plastic baggie, snip the end, drizzle all over the popcorn. Let it dry and break into pieces and put in your cute popcorn box.

Be My Valentine!!

Just wanted to share some fun Valentine ideas. I made these little tins for Caden and Noah's Pre-school teachers. I thought they turned out cute! If you are on the hunt for the tins...don't bother going to Hobby Lobby or Michaels or JoAnn's , they don't have them. Container Store. I found luck there! Then just get some cute paper and glue it down, really easy!


I made these for Noah's class. They resemble the sour cream containers. I got the idea from Skip to My Lou. She gave a very detailed step-by-step on how to make them. Make sure to check out all her other things, tons of cute ideas!
