With exactly one week to go until Valentine’s Day, many of you are probably like me and trying to find easy, inexpensive ideas for goodies that your kiddos can hand out to their friends at school.
Using individual boxes of Jelly Bellies purchased for 50 cents in the Valentine section at Target, this Valentine idea really is peachy keen. And the best part? These can be put together in less than half an hour, and they are a great way to commission the help of little hands!
For this project you will need…
Peachy Keen Jelly Bean printable (available for free download below)
2-inch round punch
Individual boxes of jelly beans (or, alternatively, jelly beans packaged in treat bags)
To assemble your treats…
Print the peachy keen printable onto your cardstock. Cut each peach out using your 2-inch round punch.
Punch two holes on either side of the stem of each of your peaches, as shown.
Thread a piece of ribbon through the holes punched on your peach, forming a loop to go around your box of jelly beans.
Finish everything by tying your ribbon in a knot and trimming your ribbon ends at an angle for a polished look.
If using the individual boxes of Jelly Bellies, there is a place for children to write their name and the name of their recipient on the back of the box. If you rather, however, have children write the “to” and “from” information on the back of each tag before affixing them to your box.
In no time flat, you’ve got Valentine’s Day treats covered!
