Incredible Edible Valentine's Day Card

When deciding on a Valentine's Card for someone special, I usually go to the card isle in the grocery store. Spend hours reading everyone of them. I love cards and choosing the right one. Not this year. This year I got a little creative with it. This year I did something different.

 Who says a card has to be a flat piece of paper stock?


I perused The Graphic Fairy's site for a vintage graphic and printed it. One was a Valentine's Cherub and the other was a Valentine's heart. The heart said, " An Offering of Friendship"

very sweet


I then cut out the graphics and cut off the "wings" of the cherub and added my own feathers.
It adds that little something extra to the print.

I usually cut around the graphics I use.I like adding more detail too. I think this makes it more your own.




Then I glued them to this adorable glitter plastic cup, I love cups like these. I found them at the dollar store, so very inexpensive.



I gathered some crepe paper and ruffled it to use as a trim on the inside of the cup.




I added a key to the bow I wrapped along the handle and filled the cup with chocolate Kisses, mints, and Reeses. I will roll a little note when I present it and stick it through the key.



I think this is a fun alternative to a regular Valentine's Day Card. It is a 3-D version!Everyone likes a sweet treat.  A new Valentine's idea! The Incredible Edible Valentine's Day Card!

Have you started thinking of Valentine's Day yet?
