Quick Creative Tip #5

Every time I see a Ring Pop, I sing to myself: If you like it put a ring on it.


As always, I insisted to my daughter that we make her Valentines for her classroom party. Over the years I've come to realize that preschoolers don't really care if something is handmade or pretty, they just want the candy. So this year I kept it simple and quick, and you can too if you Use a Banner Framelit to top a Ring Pop for a simple Valentine. Of course, you should add some sort of greeting. I used the Happy Heart Day sentiment from the Tags for You stamp set and punched it out using the Bracket punch. Staple the banner to one side of the Ring Pop (I found that the non-sucker part of the bag is preferable) and use a Dimensional to adhere your sentiment over the staple. So easy, a four-year-old can do it (maybe not the stapling part, but most everything else). The DSP? It's retired (I'm sorry, I'm sorry, but these are going to preschoolers.) I can't remember the name of the DSP that it came from, but I do remember it's a retired Christmas pack. Let me know if you know the name of the DSP. I'll send you a surprise. :-)

Happy Stampin'

You have the same problem that I do. LOL. I have started labeling my DSP so going forward, I may not have this problem anymore.
