Challenge #49 - Love Your Love

Good morning Paper Girls! 

This is Becci and I am kicking off the month of LOVE with a Valentine's class party gift. I am a fan of non-candy gifts for my girl's classes, which takes a little more planning ahead but you can also give a fun gift that will likely last longer.

Here is the beginning of my twisty straw gift project:

Then I noticed that they didn't say WHO the gift was from, so I added these cute little hearts to the back:

One tip for you on any 3D type of craft, like these or boxes or bags that you craft yourself - use HOT GLUE. Seriously, it keeps it together quicker and better and you won't have anything popping off.

Here is my completed project. I ended up making 40 of these straws to split between the girl's two classes:

The PGCB Design Team has even more lovelies to share with you today:
