Have you seen the Stampin’ Up! Monster Hugs Valentines? They are so cute!
- sign the back
- add the candy – there is already adhesive there for you to stick it on
- cross the arms – the slits are there for you to latch them in place
- add a heart – it’s self-adhesive
- add a wiggle eye – they are self-adhesive too!
- give them out!
The backs sides are so cute too – little hearts on their bums….
And they are a good price too $5.95. Each package has enough to make 18 monsters – you just need to choose if you want BOYS or GIRLS or get a pack of each. And decide on the candy – I used heart shaped lollipops for mine. Stampin’ Up! has been showing them with chocolate nuggets. And I’m sure there are other candies that you could use too.
Oh here is a little tip I just realized – duh – wish I had figured this out earlier. A lot of the candy – like these lollipops have expiration dates that are a couple of years out. These were actually some I bought last year! But they haven’t expired. So that made me think – I could be buying candy on sale the day after each holiday! Just check the expiration dates on it and see if it will last for the year – store in a good spot and your good to go and saved a bunch of money. Just a thought.
I’m off to go apartment hunting in San Francisco with Kyle. It’s a long way from Georgia but it is an amazing and exciting opportunity for him to work for Facebook. Wish us luck on our quick trip that we find something.
