Ethen handed these out in his class for V-day. I figured that since this would be his last year *tear*, that we would go all out. I was going to do those little cans of soda, but holy crap, they're pricey in comparison to the regular sized cans! I ended up buying two twelve packs for around $5 -not too much more than I would have spent had I bought the paper valentine's from the big-box store and some candy to go with it.
We used Shasta Raspberry Creme Soda and Shasta Creme Soda. I printed the tags on card stock using the computer. They say, "You are the CREME of the crop! Happy Valentine's Day! From: Ethen". He wouldn't let me say "love". Silly boys that think they're too cool.
Ethen & I cut the circles out, I attached them with glue stick to bigger circles of some red scrapbook paper that I had on-hand, and then Ethen punched holes to stick the twine through. We strung the twine through the pop tab on the top of the soda can, stuck the twine through the hole on the tag, tied a double knot, and then a bow, and called it good!
Only downfall to this Valentine? His sisters had to help him carry all of the soda cans to his classroom that morning.
