Wild About You!

I’ve been creating Valentine’s gifts for my young daughter to take to school on Friday, to exchange with her class mates. She’s in the Elephants room so I wanted to tie in with that theme.


I came across these Elmer books (one of our favorite characters) sold as a set. I thought they would make a practical alternative to a card – something that could be enjoyed for a long time to come. In order to personalize them I wanted to create a tag, but something that could be removed later. I found some chalkboard hearts that seemed perfect, allowing us to add a custom message of love that could be peeled off without leaving a residue. (A chalk pen works perfectly on this medium.) While contemplating a fun, theme-consistent message I came across this impressive list which inspired me.

My little girl is going to take the finished products to school in the accompanying tote.
