Valentine Treats

Qbee's Quest: Make Valentines for son's second grad class

My son and I made these Valentines for his class. They were fairly easy to make with this great tutorial at SplitCoastStampers. My son did all the watercoloring for these valentines with my aquapainters and reinkers. He always does a wonderful job. So for those of you out there who are afraid to watercolor, my son wants to let you know it's so easy a child can do it. We made my son's valentines with some retired close to cocoa paper, but you can also make these same Valentines with only current products. Take a look at this one below, made with products from the Love You Much Bundle.

Stamps: Love You Much
Paper: Candy Lane
Card Stock: Riding Hood Red, Sahara Sand, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Sahara Sand, Pink Pirouette
Punches: 1-3/8" Circle, Scallop Circle, Word Window, Heart to Heart
Ribbon: Riding Hood Red Tafetta
Misc: Aquapainter

Please Note: to make the best use out of the 12" x 12", I scaled the box size down to start out with a 4" x 8" piece.
