YOU'RE ONE IN A MINION VALENTINE

My boys love the Despicable Me movies and when I saw someone had used these Minion printables for cupcake push ups, I thought that they would make perfect little Valentines but wrapped around a Twinkie. It was so easy and I felt like a little Minion making all 37-both of my boys wanted them for their class. All I did was cut out the little printable, wrap it around and tape it to the Twinkie. Then I punched those heart notes saying "You're one in a Minion" with a heart shaped puncher. Punched a little hole in the heart and the top of the Twinkie wrapper and used some baker's twine to tie them together.

    4. I have tried going to this link 3 times and every time when I go to get the printable my computer shuts off my internet explorer. Not sure what is going on with this.

    5. Hmm... I'm not sure why either... I haven't had any problems with it. Sorry I don't know that much about computers to help you out!

  2. How adorable! If you have Little Debbie cakes in your area, they make cakes similar to Twinkies, if you have trouble finding them.

    1. Oh that's a good question! I have a hole puncher that is in the shape of a heart. You can find them at any craft store-I got mine at Hobby Lobby.

    3. Hi, here is the link to the other blogger's post with the free minion printable:
      http://www.tonyastaab.com/2013/06/despicable-me-2-party-push-up-cupcakes-free-printable.html

      On her blog just scroll down until you see the printable with the two minions on it. Right underneath that is a sentence that you just click on and it will download the printable to your computer. Let me know if for some reason that doesn't work. I just check it again and it worked for me.
