Valentine's fun with Welch's Fruit Snacks
I was recently given the chance to participate in the Welch's Fruit Snacks Valentine's Day Challenge to celebrate their NEW Valentine's Day-themed fruit snacks. Through this challenge I was sent a special Valentine's Day themed gift package to help me with crafting a Valentine using the new fruit snacks. And as you know my daughter and I love to craft and create things together. So we sat down and brain stormed some ways we could incorporate either the package of fruit snacks, or the fruit snacks themselves into making a homemade Valentine card. We really wanted to do something beyond filling in the "To" and "From" spots on the front of each package of fruit snacks. Of course this is perfect for classroom giving, but we wanted to make a special card for her dad.
After trying to cut the individual packages several different ways to use them for decoration we eventually gave up and just used the heart shaped fruit snacks inside to decorate the front of the card. It's a little hard to tell dimension on a photo, but the smaller hearts on the card are actually fruit snacks. I thought it really turned out cute using them. It gave the card dimension and is definitely not something you'd find in stores. While my daughter was creating the card I took the liberty to make her a card holder using the Welch's box. I cut the flaps off the ends of box and made it lay flat to start with. Then I used a hole punch to make holes down each side and then threaded foil string through each hole to decorate it and also keep it together. It looks like a big envelope now and can hold lots of cards inside. I even put my daughter's name at the top so she can use it at school when they exchange Valentine cards.
