Last year was my first year as a room mom and the first time I helped at a class Valentine’s Day Party. One thing I noticed as I watched our children hand out Valentine’s, was how they were fumbling to get their Valentine’s out of the bag they brought them in to be able hand them out to their friends.
This year, handing out Valentine’s will be a cinch for my boys with this adorable Valentine’s Card Tote I created with my Silhouette and their easy-to-use double-sided adhesive starter kit. Best of all, you can learn how to make you own tote in no time with my simple tutorial below.
