Valentine's Day crafting

I LOVE Valentine's Day. The series that I have been broadcasting this week is primarily directed towards you and how you can become a better person and love yourself. Now that is extremely important, but the best part about Valentine's Day is giving your loved ones a little sliver of how thankful you are for them.

Yesterday, I made Valentines to give to my friends tomorrow at our annual Valentine's Day "party" at lunch. It is always so much fun. I have been friends with these ten girls for almost five years now and we love to throw parties at lunch. Typically there is food, a table cloth and everyone has something special to offer. It is quite fun and a little bit over the top oh well. :)

You will need ::
  • cellophane bags
  • different colored sharpies or markers
  • card stock
  • candy 
  • scissors 
  • ribbon or tulle
  • other decorating accessories


Gather your supplies.


Pick out the candy that you want to use. My favorites are the conversation hearts and Valentine's colored M&Ms. :) 


Write cute messages on the card stock and decorate with pretty stickers and colors. 


Fill your bags with candy, not all the way to the top though! 


Tie the ribbon or tulle around your bag. I tied mine pretty close to the candy and cut of the excess bag, this way my Valentines were smaller and more cute. I would highly recommend double or even triple knotting your ribbon. This way none of the candy can come out. 


Tu as fini! 

What are you going to do for your friends this Valentines Day? I would love to hear!

xoxo

  2. I have sent Valentines with $10.00 in each of them to my grandchildren (nine of them) - that I chose carefully. Tomorrow I am going out to dinner with my best Valentine, my husband. M
