Valentine's candy & Treats for Teachers

I am late in posting this but I wanted to show you what I got for $1.00 AND what I did for the boys' teachers this year.

Since apparently "no one gives only cards" anymore (or so I'm told by my boys), they begged me for something like a lollipop or piece of candy to go with their Valentine's cards.  I hate buying stuff like that because it's so expensive, but I did happen to see that Target had SweeTarts lollipops on sale for $2 and I had a $1 coupon so that made these sweet bags of lollipops only $1.00.  Now THAT I was willing to pay for!

I treasure both my boys' teachers!  They are gems!  I wanted to do a little something special for them, so I decided to make brownies for them in the shape of hearts.  I thought I had a heart shaped pan, but I didn't, so out came the heart-shaped cookie cutter!

I had some adorable "old-fashioned" looking Valentine's Day bags, so I put several of the brownies in a bag and tied it up for each teacher, along with a heart-note!

I was thinking it was rather cute!

Hope you had a great Valentine's Day!

  2. Those brownies and gift bags were absolutely adorable!! I'll have to keep it in mind for office treats for next Valentine's Day :) (sorry for the previous deleted post - had something mispelled and it would have driven me crazy)

  3. Your boys are right! I am a school teacher ans was amazed at all the valentines cards! My daughter got a bag of silly bandz from one child...what!My husband wants to know what happen to just a cheap $1 box of cards!!
    By the way, your brownies are so cute and I love the vintage!!

  4. I would have loved to receive one of those from my students! Very cute!


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one and treasure every word!
