My Handmade Valentines Gifts


Okie dokie, pics of my last minute valentine's day treats for the fam made by my dd and me.
one for grandma, popstar, aunty char and aunty T, and one for dd's first ever teacher...

I whipped up some 'no glue required' fold up boxes to perfectly fit 3 Ferrer Roche chocolate treats. We decorated the boxes with scrapbooking papers by heidi grace, wrapped them up with cellophane and finished them with ribbon. By the time we got to making tags and finishing with the ribbon dd got restless (she even went so far as to say 'oh man mum... this is soooo boring" ) So we skipped the cute tags i had lined up and practiced tying shoelaces with the ribbon... kindergarten kids have no style sometimes...lol.

So I loved this gift idea so much that i thought i'd share a template with you all.

You can download the template here

Print it out when you are in need of a quick and easy gift idea - not just for valentines day.
They will make good teacher gifts as well.
