Grade A Valentine

In my last post, I shared Suraya’s class Valentine’s. Today it’s all about the teachers… Suraya’s teacher and aid.

As I mentioned, I was in the cookie decorating mood. Other than the little birdies I made for Suraya’s classmates, I also made heart shaped cookies. It’s Valentine’s after all! So I couldn’t resist using my tiny heart cutter…

Miniature Valentine's Heart cookies

And with it I made these tiny cookie hearts.  Valentine’s is the one time of the year where you can go heart crazy. Guess what? It wasn’t enough that these tiny cookies were heart shaped, I just had to go heart crazy and pipe in even tinier little hearts just like I did for the birdies. Started with the birds, and I just couldn’t end it there. Something about hearts… and something about piping… Once you get the rhythm you just want to keep on piping!

Do I have a packaging plan for these little hearts? I sure do!

Grade A Valentine's Cookies in Milk Bottle

Milk bottles! You’ve seen me use these bottles before in this post HERE. They are from Hobby Lobby for a $1. I think these bottles can make anything look cute. However, in this case, I’m not sure if it’s the bottle that’s making the hearts look cuter or the hearts making the bottles look cuter. Hmmm… What do you think?

I finished off the packaging with chalkboard labels, twine, and paper straws. Just like Suraya’s class Valentine’s, simple finishing touches.

Grade A Valentine's Milk Bottles

Instead of Grade A milk, we’ve got ourselves a Grade A Valentine. I sure do hope Suraya’s teachers enjoy their Grade A Valentine!

    Those bottles are adorable! and those cookies are perfect in there. How cute! I'm sure her teachers will love them. You've given me the idea to do the same sort of thing for my son's teacher and aid. Now just to see what I can find as bottles/containers at the dollar store over here.

    Gorgeous! I'm sure they won't be able to stop smiling! Except for maybe when they are biting into a cookie or sipping milk through the straw :-)
