Ring for Aba


The littlest came home from school not to long ago asking his papa for a ring.
Papa: What do you need a ring for?
#2: I need a ring so I can marry Aba.
Papa: You are going to marry Ava?
#2: Yes, I'm going to marry Aba and I need a ring like you married mama with a ring.
The oldest piped in and said he could give #2 the rings he got out of a vending machine a couple months back.



So today we made Ava (or Aba) a special Valentine using the cute freebie digital image created by Beth from Papertrey Ink in celebration of their five year anniversary. After I cut the cardstock down to size and used a circle punch to make a hole, I ran it through the embossing machine using the Polka Dot Basics II Impression Plate, then attached a colored bee image behind the front flap and rounded the corners! I cut a small length of ribbon and stapled the valentine and ribbon to the juice container. Now that I think about it, since these sweet notes were super easy, quick and inexpensive to make that the boys could help me and they could be their treats instead of candy for the school parties.
