Valentine's Day Teacher Gifts

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!

From this:

 To this...

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


  1. Much, much, much better! They turned out so pretty. Unfortunately around here, we still have Christmas candy in the stores. Maybe the Valentine's candy will arrive by the time March rolls around. :/ Hope you are having a great week. Tammy

  2. What neat idea! I might have to go to the Dollar Store! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Lucky teachers to receive such pretty, and delicious, gifts!
