Before February is over, I wanted to share one last Valentine’s Day idea with you. While I realize that you will not need the idea any time soon, maybe you could pin it unto Pinterest so you can find it next year when you do need it. Or maybe you will find it while searching the internet.
My daughter’s AHG troop exchanged Valentine’s within her unit. We loved this, for as a homeschooler we have not regularly exchanged Valentine’s among friends and classmates. Instead of the regular store-bought cheesy cards, we opted to make some. In my search I have found several ideas that involved wrapping a box of confectionary hearts but none of them seemed right for us. So I was determined to make one that she liked.
If you would like them you will need the following items.
- .75 ounce box of conversation hearts (I found these at WalMart, they were sold in sets of 4 for $1.00)
- clear tape
- Print out of the wrappers (Owl Always Be your friend candy box wrappers)
- ink pen / pencil / thin tip marker
They are really easy to assemble and Lily was able to do them all by herself.
Step 1: Print out the wrappers needed. There are three to a page, so multiple pages may be needed.
Step 2: Cut out each piece.
Step 3: Complete the “To/From” section on each wrapper. It is easier to do this before they are put on the box.
Step 4: Lay the image of the owls on top of the box and wrap it around. Use a piece of tape to secure it. It helps if you crease the paper as you wrap it, but it is not necessary.
Step 5: Share with you friends.
I hope you enjoy
