Valentine's Day - Treat ideas - "Mice" treats...

We made these 3 years ago for Valentine's day exchange at school...last year we prepped them all and the kids got to make them as one of their craft projects during the valentine's day party at school.

My kids had the greatest time creating these little itty bitty mice basically out of diecut cardstock hearts and Hershey kisses. Even my 3 year old (at that time) had no problem gluing these little guys together using glue dots.


Cardstock: Club Scrap
Rubberstamps: Club Scrap
Inks: Ranger Industries
Heart Diecut: Sizzix
Glue dots
wiggly eyes
Chocolate candy kisses


1. Cut out one large heart per mouse. The sizzix diecut comes with varying sizes of hearts, so I cut both of the larger sizes of hearts in red, pink, cream, and blue, so that we could layer the "ears" with multiple colors of cardstock.
2. Layer hearts now if desired.
3. I then stamped the "handcrafted..." sentiment on the back of the heart.
4. On the front of some of the hearts, we stamped small hearts.
5. Use mini glue dots to attach wiggly eyes onto the 'face' of the mouse.
6.We used large glue dots to attach the “candy kiss” head to the diecut heart, then attach the “candy kiss” body to the other side of the diecut.

Good luck and have fun!!
