Wild About You Valentines

Hello friends! Welcome to my project for this week's Bitten By the Bug 2 Cricut Challenge. My very talented design team sister, Caroline, has challenged us to create Valentine's for children this week. Her timing is perfect as this challenge got me moving on Valentine gifts for my daughter's second grade students.

These cute Valentine sucker covers are a "make it now" project in Design Space.  It utilizes two Cricut cartridges and one Cricut font:  Create A Critter 2, Ribbons and Rosettes, and Simple Celebrations font.

The lion face if from Create A Critter 2.  It is cut in three layers. 
The lion mane is a rosette from Ribbons and Rosettes.  I used a striped Valentine paper for the mane. The make it now project included the "Wild about you" phrase.  I added "Love, Mrs. Ross" to the opposite end of the tag so when it is folded the from line is on the back.

Doug went Target to look for heart shaped suckers for me.  I failed to mention that I need regular size suckers so imagine my surprise when he came home with large Sweetart suckers!  They are much larger than I planned, but they are QUITE yummy.  Doug did good!!

Have you been by the Bitten By the Bug 2 Cricut blog this week? The design team created a variety of cute Valentine's for children. I hope that you go by and check out the post, then join us in this week's challenge!
