Piano Valentines For Students and Staff

     This is the first set of the little Valentines I made for my students this year. I thoroughly enjoyed making them, thanks to Joy at Color In My Piano, who shared her super-cute idea and even gave us the printable and instructions! 

I decided to use Hershey kisses for the candy part, and was surprised and glad that they don't weigh so much that they close the lid of the tiny baby grand. ;)

This is what I wanted to do originally- use kisses as the legs of the piano. But I couldn't figure out how to get them to stay, so I just enjoyed looking at it and then scrapped the idea!

     While making them for my 10 students, I thought of some other people for whom these would be perfect- our church pianists!  We have about 7 pianists who rotate on the piano schedule I make every 3 months or so.  I really appreciate all the effort they make to be at their respective instruments when they are scheduled. So on Sunday, 5 of them found these little pianos in their mail boxes at church! (The other 2 pianists are my husband, who is the music pastor, and myself, so I think I'll leave us out this time) :)

I was having a little fun with this first "batch" of Valentines....I arranged them in concert order for another photo shot. They were unbelievably patient while I photographed them.....they are just oh, so cute!
