What are you most proud of? I purposely kept the sewing design and trims to a minimum. I enclosed valentine stickers, so each child can decorate and personalize the outside of the envelope. Each year it can be re-decorated, by peeling off the od stickers and adding new ones. A fun and easy valentine "craft" for busy mommies to do with the kids.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Place a cute card and a few age appropriate treats inside (pastic heart straws, chocolate, lolly pop hearts or small toys etc...)
