UPDATED MAY 7TH 2013 TO INCLUDE INSTRUCTIONS FROM MY ORIGINAL POST ON SKIP TO MY LOU 
****************

Here's the VISUAL How-To






Here’s the VERBAL How-To:

1. Print Cards onto white card stock.

2. Trim to size using scissors or a paper trimmer.

3. Fold in half.

4. Use a 1.5″ Round Craft Punch to create a circle through the middle of the 
folded card.

5. Unfold card and have your child (or yourself) fill it out with a fine-tip sharpie or pen.

6. Fill a mini ziploc bag a little more than 1/2 full with sprinkles of your choice.

7. Refold card and slide the mini ziploc bag filled with sprinkles in between both sides of the card.

8. Staple the card closed – being sure the staple penetrates through the top of the mini ziploc bag.

KEEPiNG iT REAL
Ella started her first day of preschool yesterday.
I'm totally using these for the classroom Valentine's Party tomorrow.
I'm a little hesitant since it'll only be her 3rd day there and I'm not sure I'm ready to be labeled as "THAT mom" - if you know what I mean?

But I did get to send one home with her sweet little friend, Elise, after their "Friendship Party" we had at our house yesterday. All of the sweet details coming soon.

Hello! I love this card and want to make them but when I went to get the bags in that size they were craft bags and said do not use for food. What bags did you use?

Hi Anonymous…

Thanks for your comment - The bags I used were from the jewelry making/craft section. There's nothing on mine about them not being food safe but if you are worried about it then absolutely don't use them. If I were going to heat them up in the microwave I'd probably be concerned about using them with food. I'm not sure if that helps or not? Let me know what you end up doing. You could always wrap them in saran instead. Not as cute but it would still work.

Where did you purchase your hole punch? I bought mine at Hobby Lobby, I purchased the 1.5 medium and it cuts of some of the lettering. HELP!!!!!!!!!

Hello Anonymous…I'm soooo sorry I didn't see this comment sooner. I don't recall exactly which craft store I purchased the 1 1/2" hole punch - it was either JoAnn's or Michael's and the brand is Paper Shapers. I hope that helps - even though Valentine's Day has already passed. *tears*
