Valentine Pouch

I always try to think of a way to incorporate Valentines Q's received into her learning. They are such a great tool for literacy! I've made laminated books and baggie books ....
This year I whipped up a felt envelope with stuff I had around the house. I stamped "Mail for Quinn" on a tshirt scrap using stamps, sewed the sides of some felt, used pinking shears to make it pretty, and sewed on a button. She can keep all her valentines inside and use them in her play. We can play post office, Valentine party, mailman, etc......
You could use a glue gun if you don't sew and you could use scraps of fabric from clothes you don't use anymore. Denim would be super cute! This would also be toddler or baby-friendly!!
