Valentine's Day Gifts for Pre-School

These turned out a bit smaller than I had anticipated.  I tried using the Cricut Craftroom with my Imagine to get more larger images on one mat, but the program was not working with Imagine.  I wanted to troubleshoot, but no time.  I had already been on the phone with Cricut Customer Support twice in two days trying to get my Imagine to!  At least that has been fixed.  My Imagine is up to date and happy.  Maybe another day for the Craftroom.

Anyway, I think these turned out really cute.  I wanted to do something pretty simple since they were going to a group of Pre-schoolers.

I made the elephant with the Create A Critter cartridge.  I sprayed it with homemade pink glimmer mist to give it a little more texture.

Then my DH and I added tags onto the trunk to add the kiddos name.  Then I stuck the elephant onto a heart sucker as a treat.


  1. So cute! How do you find the time! :)

    1. Well this time it was in between dinner and the kiddo taking a bath. Then when she was sleeping. Overall it took me three days in little spurts. The DH even helped tie some of the tags on.
