Valentine’s Day Delights

Love is in the air! On February 14th, children all over this country will be celebrating Valentine’s Day.
My collection of delights for this year’s Valentine’s Day include small take home gifts and sweet treats for your child’s classmates or teachers. They could also be handed out as a party favour or simply given to someone you or your child feels is extra “special”; like an aunt, a friend, grandparent or sibling — just to name a few.
Individually wrapped Wint-O-Green Lifesavers
3.5″ x 2.5″ plastic pillow boxes
Avery #08293 1 1/2″ round labels
Directions: Place five or six lifesavers in each clear plastic pillow box. Design your label and print. I placed my label on a larger key tag that I had kicking around from Christmas. Place a glue dot in the middle of the underside of the round label and affix it to the center of the pillow box. I also added a little “dazzle” by placing a small red crystal heart.
Mini rubber bath ducks
Organza 3″ x 4″ treat bags
Gartner Favour Tag 1 1/2″ square
Directions: Place the mini valentine duck in the organza bag. Design your favour tag and print. Tie the favour tag to the treat bag with the white draw string ribbon.
#3 Valentine don’t ever “change”
Large Silver foil covered chocolate coins
White 4.5″ x 7″ Organza Bags
Gartner 1 1/2″ square Favour Tag
Directions: Place twelve of the large silver foil chocolate coins in each organza bag. Design your label and print. Tie the favour tag to the treat bag with the white draw string ribbon.
#4 Valentine you “blow” me away
Red bubble gum
Clear Plastic candy tubes
Directions: Fill the clear plastic candy tubes with 4 red bubble gums and secure the lid. I designed the label to look like a banner flag, printed it, and glued it around the candy tube attaching a ”Happy Valentine’s Day” tag.
