all that i heart - day 12

I heart Making! By no means am I Martha you-know-who, but I do love making things with my hands because it gives me a small sense of pride to create something special and have fun while doing it. Ahem, we won't mention all those unfinished disaster projects lurking under my bed. I'm trying to forget about those in hopes that they'll just disappear and I won't feel guilty about the wasted money. Right. Tonight I made these yummy little Valentine's for some friends in my neighborhood. (Don't you wish you were in my neighborhood? I do.) This Valentine's craft was fast, easy, and cheap and therefore fit snuggly with my schedule, ability, and budget.
Here's what you'll need:

  • Candy (yum!) of your liking
  • 3 x 3 x 3 inch clear plastic boxes. I found these at Xpedx for .75 cents each.
  • Ribbon
  • A Valentine note. I printed mine on sticker paper just because I had some handy and because sticker paper is the best ever.
  • Glue dots to secure your ribbon. Have you ever used glue dots? I'm totally obsessed! They are my new favorite thing in my craft corner.
  • Scissors
It's so fun to make and especially fun to receive a special homemade Valentine. Happy Valentine Making!
