1st Annual Girl Scout Valentine's Day Cookie Swap

My Junior Girl Scout troop made these 2 years ago, in order to invite a younger Brownie Troop to the school's 1st Cookie Exchange party!  I am still proud of this project and how much fun my girls had making them (and of the party which included a paper craft and decorating bags to hold their cookies)!

If this looks like fun to you, I am offering a Valentine's Kit that can be purchased and sent to you! If you live near-by, I'd love to come to your troop, classroom or group to do this activity with you!  It is VERY easy though; all you need are the supplies and you're ready to go.

Secret Instructions
The 1st picture (below) is of the inside of the cards.  We attached a tiny, envelope (made using Stampin' Up!'s exclusive Big Shot Scalloped Envelope die) to add intrigue and "Magic" ~ Let's face it, one of the best parts about being a Paper Crafter and A Troop Leader is creating that Magic!  :) The instructions were how many cookies to make, how to package (we did 3 cookies per girl/recipe), and how many copies of the recipe to make.
Simple elegance ~ As I said, the girls were pleased about how beautiful their invitations turned out. 

These two card fronts show how easy it is to personalize the designs.  Now if someone would just show me how to better format this blog, I'd feel almost brilliant.  :P
