Juice Pouch Valentine's

I posted about these last year, but it was very last minute, so I'm reposting this year! I was trying to think of something different than the crayons I had been doing, and I remembered we had a fridge full of Capri Sun drinks. And then I had an idea! I started by printing "love juice". I could have made it more intricate, but I don't have any fancy programs & was short on time.

I punched each one out using a large round punch.

And I also used a large scallop punch to punch circles out of red cardstock.

I could have skipped adding extra Valentine's, but I had purchased these previously for 90% off, and the kids wanted to use them. So I punched a hole in the corner of each one.

And a hole in each tag.

Add 33 Capri Sun pouches.

And punch a hole in the top of each one. Just make sure you don't go below that line, or you will have leaky pouches!

Then just take a piece of curling ribbon, and string them all together. Cute, huh? This one is for Blake's class, and the boys in Layla's class.

And this one is for the girls in Layla's class.

I think they turned out really cute and are a nice alternative to all that candy.

Hey Wendy. This is such a smart idea. Like you said a nice change from all the candy and something to wash it down with.

Thanks for entering my giveaway.
