Not going to lie, I had entirely too much fun making these Valentine's! Usually when I get crafty ideas, I have a blast shopping for supplies, then I get home and bam! All of a sudden my crafting motivation is gone & the project turns into more of an annoyance & a thing on my to-do list than anything else. Well not this!
Wednesday evening, I was trying to come up with a Valentine's Day idea that would beat out last years Valentine's. Swear I'm in competition with myself at all times lol.... Does anyone else sit around trying to outdo your past self?!? Totally normal right ;-)
Last Valentine's Day we crafted up the internet famous apple sauce pouches, but attached Apple Jack (My Little Pony) Valentine's to the apple sauce. They were a total hit & total unique spin on a classic. I was convinced we wouldn't beat them no matter how hard we tried. People just loved the whole Apple Jack/Apple Sauce theme! It was perfect for a room full of 2 year olds! Even the little boys got smiles on their faces when they saw Apple Jack.
Haylie's 3 favorite things at the moment are My Little Pony, Sofia the First & Minions. Maybe it's because I live in the blogging world, but these are the three things that are just way over done! Everywhere you look you see all three of these. But since these are Haylie's favies & these are here Valentine's, we finally decided on Minions. We just totally put a total girly spin on it.
So using our HP Envy printer, never ending supply of HP Social Snapshots paper & ink I received for being a #MyPrintlyMom we crafted up a pretty cute Valentine if I don't say so myself!
The following morning while Haylie was at school I stopped at my favorite store, Dollar Tree and picked up supplies! Everything in this photo, minus the pudding can be purchased there. Pudding we wanted a name brand, so a stop at Wegmans it was! Don't care what brand the pudding is? You can the get pudding at the Dollar Tree as well ;-)
Once Haylie got home from school, our crafting game was on! Like I mentioned above, we were on a mission to girlify & make Minions glamorous, so we used heart stickers for glasses. Our unique twist on the million minions post we have been seeing ;-) I think our minions turned out pretty fabulous if I don't say so myself.
The hardest part was probably sticking the electrical tape on the pudding cups! Sticking tape on a goofy slopped surface without any bumps or creases was no joke! Besides that, easy peasy to assemble.
Haylie's favorite part was sticking on the foam stickers! I don't know what it is with toddlers and stickers, but the peeling and sticking kept her pretty occupied for awhile. Even after we were finished assembling the Minions.
Since Haylie & I love y'all so very much, we have included a free Minions Valentine's Day printable below :) The same as in the photos above, just minus the HaylieLynne part of course!
Hope y'all have a fabulous Valentine's Day

These are really cute! My grandson is in preschool this year so it will be his very first Valentine's Day where he gets to exchange Valentines. I may just have to pick up some pudding cups and see what we can come up with!

With schools no requiring store bought & prepackaged items for holiday parties, these would be perfect! They're prepackaged and yet you can still personalize it! And Minions are so popular right now, it would be great!
