Day 2 of Valentine Projects

 Happy Monday!
My kiddos are off to school today with the weekend over. 
 so I thought it was the perfect time to share what Valentines goodies they will be passing out to their classmates this year.

Today I'm bringing you what my daughter will give to her friends.
 LOVE these lip kazoos/whistles thingies.  
Picked them up at target and they were only $1.50 for four...score!
Making the tag was easy peasy too.
Check it out.


1. Print the tag
Print saying on the computer.  I use Microsoft word and played with different sayings and fonts.
Use the columns and copy & paste to make making a bunch easier (I used three columns a sheet).  What ever you do, make sure you leave enough room for the lips to fit.
Play around with it, It's all up to you!
Then use your paper trimmer to cut straight lines to form your tag

2. Decorate and punch holes
To add a little sass I stamps hearts from the Hero Arts "Year Round Sentiments" set and added a flag strip to the top.  You are then going to punch two holes parallel to each other on the tag.  Using a pair of scissors, cut between the two holes.  This will be where you insert the whistle. (left picture below)

3. Put it in and pass it out
Now just insert the back of the whistle into the slot you made.  See image on the right?  That is the back of the tag.  If your whistle is not snug in it's tag then you could add a little washi to hold it there.


That's it for me today but be sure to join me tomorrow when I share what my son is taking for his friends.  Now get the hopping to my crafty friends sites and check out what they have for you today.
