gift: Valentine cello toppers


I sat around trying to think of a fun way to show our customers, loyal readers of my blog, bloggers who have shared the shoppe and candidly anyone intrigued enough to stop by, how much we “heart” them on Valentine’s Day. In the end I decided to give away another free printable. This time it’s a craft you can do with your kids: adorable Valentine Day owl and dinosaur cello bag toppers.


Pick out your favorite candy or bake up some goodies, put them in clear cello bags (shown with mini cellos, but you can cut off the longer ones), print off the topper, have your child sign his/her name, fold and staple (instructions are provided if you prefer ribbon). It’s simple and much cuter, in my opinion, than the cardboard ones I used to get as a kid… especially since I don’t recall getting any cookies attached. {wink}


UPDATE January, 24, 2011 – we just posted for 2011! Read the post on how to receive your templates!


We hope that you will love these new printable designs as much as we loved creating them. And remember, our kids don’t get to have all the fun… I plan on giving these to my girlfriends too!


Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

    WOW! I love this! I’ve already purchased Valentine’s for my daughter’s class…but guess what we’re doing instead?!?!? This seems much more inexpensive than all of those little bags of candy you have to buy. I now can buy a big bag of M&M’s. Seriously – this is just great, thank you so much!
