I bought some Extra Raindow Sherbert sugar-free dessert gum--yummy and sweet, but no sugar. Makes both moms and kids happy! I used my Cricut machine to cut out a 3.75 x 4.75 inch postage stamp shape for the card bases using the Creative Memories Traveler Cricut Cartridge and We R Memory Keepers new Crazy For You patterned papers. If you don't have a die cutting machine, you can just cut 3.75 x 4.75 inch pieces of patterned paper.
baker's twine around it, and then used double sided tape to add them to the card bases. We finished them off with small punched out hearts stuck on with foam squares for a little dimension. Easy, fun, and cute!
Enjoy, and be sure to share a link to your own valentine creations. Happy valentine-making!
