Preschool Valentines: You're My Main SQUEEZE!

ETA: If you'd like to use my Silhouette cut files or a PDF you can cut yourself of the inner circle,
you can download them HERE!

We're a big fan of the GoGo Squeez applesauces.
They are an easy way to have a portable healthy snack readily available
when we're away from home.
So, when I saw these Valentines and then found our Costco is currently carrying
the GoGo's - I knew they would be perfect for Isabella to take to her friends.

I used my Silhouette SD's print and cut feature to make them,
and it was so perfect and made the process super simple.

Once you design the text, it's time to fill them with color.
With your word selected, open the Fill Color window and fill with color.
After they are filled with color, you select all the text inside of your circle.
Then, open the Cut Style window and select "No Cut".
Next open the Registration Marks window and turn on the registration marks.
You'll want to make sure you keep your design out of the grey cross marks.
Send it to your printer and then load into your Silhouette
and send to the Silhouette to cut and choose "auto detect registration marks".
Then cut!

I glued the circles onto a larger scalloped circle that I also cut with the Silhouette,
and then punched a little hole in the top and used baker's twine to
tie the little tag to the applesauce.
I also signed the "::heart:: Isabella" on the back.

I super adore how they came out and Isabella loved them because
the applesauce is her current obsession.
It was the perfect option for her class of 12 kids
but I'm doing something else a little more cost effective for JT's class of 32.

If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know if you have any questions.
Are you done with your Valentines?
What are you making this year?

Love this idea! My daughter loves applesauce! Do you have this file in a PDF so I could print it? It will not let me open the silhouette file.

Love this idea! My daughter loves applesauce so would be great to give to the kids in her class. Do you have this in a PDF file so I could print it? It will not let me open the silhouette file. Thanks!

Thanks for the PDF version! I am using these for my daughter's valentine's for her class. Except I'm going to have her cut out hearts for the background. :)
