Valentine’s Day Projects

There is craft carnage all over my house;  landmines of leftover vinyl and icing and crushed lollipops that didn’t make the cut. It’s as if Valentine’s Day had a bender and the hangover is everywhere.

I learned an important lesson during this most recent Valentine’s Day cram. When someone warns you that adding oil-based flavoring to royal icing can prevent it from setting, it really shouldn’t be taken as a suggestion. It’s really more of a fact.

Despite that set-back and my novice ability to work with the right consistency of royal icing, I managed to pull together a nice little collection of Valentine’s crafts and gifts for my mini-me to take to school today. We’ve been working since Sunday on our projects, and when I say “we,” I do mean we. Although I will admit that some of the finer details have been achieved on the second shift after she’s gone to bed.

Here’s a look at our Valentine’s Day projects:
