Let’s get something straight right out of the gate here…I stink at printables. That’s why I have a printables contributor. Virginia is awesome at printables and totally takes the pressure off of me. But…I wanted to make this so badly, so I just went for it. It probably won’t happen again for a very long time. I want Kate and I to make the Valentine’s Day gifts for her class this year instead of just buying something and signing her name. I saw these Kool Aid bottles (which we don’t normally buy), and thought they would look super cute with something else and something that said “kool.” Yep…totally lame, and I chastised my own mother for saying, “Too cool for school!” back in the 90’s, but I think it’s cute now. Must mean I’m getting old or something…let’s not go there. I’ll show you what got me started on these cute little “U R 2 Kool for School” Valentine’s.
One of my favorite places in the world to shop is Pick Your Plum…you can find a link to their shop in my sidebar on the right.
A few weeks ago, I saw these cute “fry” boxes on sale for way cheap at Pick Your Plum and had to have them. I ordered every color they had!
I knew they would be perfect for my idea with the Kool Aid bottles, and boy was I happy when they got here. They are the perfect size for the bottle of Kool Aid and a Rice Krispies Treat!
All they needed was a little bling or printable, and they are perfect…at least I think so!
You can use these printables on anything…fry boxes, stapled to the top of a baggie, or you could even make your own little envelope or fry box using some cardstock!
If you like…you can print them out for yourselves.
So…what do you think? Is “Too Kool for School” still lame? Are you making your own Valentine’s this year?
