Last-Minute Valentine


OK, I bought my husband a bag of chocolates from See's candies and thought, I'll spruce it up later. Well, today is Valentine's Day so here's what I came up with from things around the house.

Materials:
Foil-wrapped chocolates
Sharpie
Grey Poupon jar
Pinking shears
Paper lunch bag
Rubber band
Kitchen twine
gift tag

Step1: Gather supplies.

Step 2: Write personal
messages on foil.


Step 3: Cover jar.
Step 4: Cut out square of paper bag.
Use jar lid as guide.

Step 5: Secure with rubber band.

Step 6: Add kitchen twine
and gift tag.

If you don't have a tag, use the ones that
hold extra yarn on the sweaters you buy.

Pretty cute! You can make this for your sweetie, your kids, your BFF. It's fun to customize the message and make it personal, but in a pinch you can even just give the jar of hearts.

PS
The hardest part of this project was getting my Grey Poupon jar in gift-ready mode. Here's the step-by step:
