{Getting Crafty} School Valentines..more candy canes

We are using more candy canes! 
Remember my wreath?
My daughter decided to make her school valentine's out of candy canes too.
Start out with some candy canes.
She used a low temp glue gun to make the hearts.
Hold them together for a few seconds until they set.
Repeat for as many valentine's that you'll need.
Leave the finished candy cane hearts in this dish until your mom picks up the labels you'll need to finish this project.
Punch out some card stock tags.
Use Word to make up some labels
and print out on round labels
Punch out the hole at the top of the tags
So they look like this.
Tie the tags onto the hearts with some ribbon.
And you've got a creative (and thrifty) valentine!
