The 9-year-old decided she needed to bring Valentine treats to her ballet class this coming week… and I was fortunate enough to happen across this adorable printable by
PBJandJ in her Etsy shop.

I placed my order in the evening and the following morning I had an email with my PDF ready to download.

PBJandJ’s printable came with four different designs on one sheet, but I was mostly interested in the one that read “Glad we’re in the same school”.



A little bit of tweaking in Microsoft Paint, and I had exactly what we wanted… “Glad we’re in the same (ballet) school” printing as four identical images per sheet.

The 9-year-old and I had a lot of fun together cutting them out and stuffing the treat bags…

I was left on my own for all the bow tying though.

She’s very excited to share her Valentine treats with all of her little ballet friends!

(And her little brother is very excited about the left-over Swedish Fish.)
