valentine heart container sticks

because you are here, 
visiting my blog outta the million blogs out there, 
i made these for you.
it's a blinged out valentine.

wanna know how to make this easy peasy craft?

grab some heart candy. 
and you'll need this from michael's:
1st step:
you'll have to cut the rest of the straw off.
and why use cookie sticks?
cuz cookie sticks are thick.
lollipop sticks are too thin and wobbly to hold the container up and skewers? well, they just won't do.

so now where were we?
oh yeah, step 2:
then step 3:
make sure that stick is glued to the container itself or you'll have a wobbly treat.

and for step 4:
ta da!
all done. 
wasn't that easy?

and look:
so just to let you know again,
consider this your "like" if you are on facebook.
i have an account but uh...it's pretty much blank cuz i haven't taken the time to figure it out. 

i'm afraid if i do, i will be hooked.
and then there will be no time to cook dinner.
or take a shower.
or spend time on other blogs.
oh and er, 
have family time.
(almost forgot about that one! just kidding...)

anyway, 
yes!
the XOXO always works.

even without a "real" facebook account.

and these blinged out valentines are sure to impress if you make them.

just ask brad.
well, let's just hope they impress somebody.

XOXO
