I actually got a head start on Valentine's Day this year and have checked off teacher gifts on my to-do list. I purchased several boxes of Valentine's candy at Target and then fancied them up a bit at home. I didn't have to spend a ton of money to come up with sweet, one-of-a-kind gifts. And, I got my craft on!
For each box of candy, I pulled off the plastic wrap and then taped the sides with a few pieces of scotch tape. I then added grosgrain ribbon to the sides using double-sided tape. I traced the heart onto card stock, cut it out, and glued it to the top of the heart using a sponge brush and matte Modge Podge. Then, I embellished it with ribbons, stamps, and stickers.
Much better, I think!
Are you working on any Valentine's projects? I would love to hear about them! Pin It
