I saw this idea on facebook at My Scrap Chick and thought it was a great idea! If you want their pencil, jump on over to their website and grab it. It's really cute, but since I had this one, I just used it. Their file is actually a little cuter though! Anyway, I love the idea of giving something other than candy. Don't get me wrong, my kids will get some candy and so will my sweetie, but something else is a good thing too. I liked these because once you pull out the pencil, you can use it as a bookmark. Last year I made really cute bookmarks for my kids and thought these would be fun too. They came together so easy, I ended up using a lot of scraps and making 10 of these to give to my daughter's music teacher, my son's school teacher etc. I even made blue one's for hubby and my son instead of pink or read! LOL. I think they are a cute way to say Happy Valentine's Day.
