Peanuts Valentines with Oriental Trading

Good morning!  Today I am sharing a lot of fun Valentine's day projects that I put together using products from Oriental Trading.  
They have SO many fun supplies to choose from to make up goodie bags! This year, they have several items that have Peanuts characters on them.  My boys FLIPPED when they saw these!
First off, I made these simple treat bags.  Inside the Medium Sheer Gift Bags are a Mini Neon Shuttle Pen,  Peanuts Valentine Stickers, and  Nestle Crunch Hearts Candy which has the Peanuts gang on the wrapper too!  I tied the top of the bags with Valentine Ribbon Assortment.
 Next, I have some cute square cards on which I featured the Peanuts Valentine Stickers.  I also used Pink & Red Super 50 Paper PackCardstock Variety PackSelf Adhesive Valentine Pearls & Jewels, andValentine Ribbon Assortment on these.  They are quick and cute, perfect to make several of!
This is a closeup of one. The doily diecut with the sticker is popped up with Foam Tape and I used Stick-Em Mini Adhesive Dots (my favorite dry glue adhesives!) to help adhere the ribbon.
 Last, but definitely not least, I decorated some DIY Notebooks in a sports theme to show you how easy it is to make Valentine's for boys too!  Here is a list of the supplies I used on these DCWV Glitter Basics StackPink & Red Super 50 Paper PackCardstock Variety PackSelf Adhesive Valentine Pearls & JewelsValentine Ribbon AssortmentFoam Tape and very imprtantly, Red Line Double Sided Tape.  I used the double sided tape to adhere the paper to the cover of the notebook because their cover is a white canvas.  I wanted to make sure the paper didn't come off!
Here is the baseball one.  All of the SVG files that I used on these are from SVG Cuts' 24 Valentine's SVG Kit.  
 The football one, which I used a dots embossing folder on the brown heart to make it look more like a real football.
And last, but not least, the basketball one that I also embossed the orange layer on to make it look more realistic.  I added a  Peanuts Valentine's Day Pencil to each of the spirals of these notebooks so they can be ready to use.

Here is a recap of all the products I used from Oriental Trading:

I loved using them all!  Plus my boys were so excited when they saw all the Peanuts products, and the notebooks, and the pens...well, pretty much all of the supplies!  I would highly recommend any and all of them.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
