Valentines Day Gifts

My daughter and I decided to make her class and teachers some Valentines day gifts.  I thought you might like to see how we did it.

First cut out your desired shape.  I used a cookie cutter and traced a heart shape on a plain piece of paper, then cut it out and taped it onto the cup.

Use the tip of the pen to lightly tap the desired colors. This markers dries quickly so if you make a mistake you only have a minute to fix it. Remove the template and let dry.

The finished product. We made three and on the back we wrote each of the teachers names.  One cup was for my gramma.

For the gift bags.  Just print the template here. Cut them out and then place them inside a gift bag.  Fill the bag with as many fish as you want and then close and give away to the class.

We also filled the cups with M&M's and the remaining Swedish Fish with a little note attached to the handle for each teacher.

Things you will need:

  1. Ceramic marker.  I got mine from Michaels and they are called DecoColor. 
  2. Ceramic mugs, plates or whatever you want to decorate. 
  3. gift bags - clear or mostly clear (found at Wal-Mart in the party supply section near the cake decorating stuff)
  4. Swedish fish OR Goldfish crackers
  5. Color printer
