Striped Straws: Valentines

I can't get enough of striped straws these days -and no party is a party without them! And thus my inspiration for these candy-free classmate valentines. You make every sip sweeter, Valentine. Oh yes you do.

Materials needed:
Printable Labels, cut to size:
Red front / Polka-dot back (click on bright green download button)
Gray front / Polka-dot back (click on bright green download button)
Benzie Blend Felt (I used Strawberry and Parchment), cut into hearts (I used a die-cut)
Striped straws in red and gray
Double sided tape

Step 1: Fold felt heart in half and make two small cuts into the fold approximately 1/2" apart.

Step 2: Place an inch of double sided tape along the back side of the labels (polka dot side).

Step 3: Slide heart and label on the straw.

Step 4: Press down to adhere.

And you're all done! There is also a place for your child to write his or her name on the back of the label. I suggest this to be done first -before the valentines are assembled. These would also be a perfect match to your favorite beverage, tied with twine. You make every sip sweeter valentine!
