Made in Minutes Monday with MCT

I love this new feature for 2014...Made in Minutes! This is where we share with you ideas that you can do yourself in mere minutes. For my first Made in Minutes project, I made these super cute Valentine arrows. They took about 10 minutes to make....for all of them! For the pointed end, I used the middle size of the new Stitched Sweethearts dies, and the arrow end is the arrow from the 4x4 journaling die set. I modified it slightly by cutting off the points at the top and turning it around.

And the super sweet with the adorable new Peachy Keen faces on them! Peachy faces make everything extra super cute!

One more idea - you can (if you want to) add a candy to each of the pencils instead of a peachy face. Voila! Sugar upper! I'm sure the teacher would be thrilled to have more candy in her classroom on Valentine's Day. LOL

I also did these milk flavoring straws. These took about the same amount of time as the four pencils, only because I added a little tag that needed to be cut, stamped and tied on. So fun and super easy. The kids will be pleased with them, I'm sure. :)

So there you have a few 10 minute ideas for classroom Valentines. Have fun and just think, you'll be the first one finished if you start right now. ;)
