Valentine Treats for Teachers

For a Valentine's treat my kids wanted to dip pretzels in chocolate.  So we got some pretzel rods and dipped them in white chocolate and then sprinkled them in pink to be more festive!

I took recycled tin cans and made something to put them in to dress them up a bit.  My son and daughter picked very different styles for their teachers!
 The font on this one is Gypsy Font
The font on this one is A Child's Year.  The letters and dots on this one were done with white contact paper.  I also did learn that the contact paper would peel off the paper without any issue.  That was a discovery I was very happy to make!

Now, the damage from this little project... don't try to wash out the inside of a can with a lot of strength while running your thumb around the inside rim.  I have bled through a few band aids on my thumb in the past couple hours as a result of that choice :)

For challenge at  My Sheri Crafts
This is also for the "Something Sweet" challenge at Cooking With Cricut.  What is sweeter than chocolate dipped pretzels?!
