I decided to make my own valentines gifts where my kids can write something on it and it was economical. I bought twenty(20) pieces of pencils, a rim of colored papers and 2 packs of small size chocolate Hershey bar that has 12 pieces on each pack.
Here's my very easy yet sweet valentine craft. The gift has pencil, hearts and a Hershey chocolate at the back. It didn't take me long to make them, I was done within 2(two) hours If I wasn't interrupted I could get it done for an hour. Each of my kids wrote Happy Valentines Day with their names on it.
Here's how the back looks like, I taped the pencil to the heart first that way it will be easy to tape the chocolate.
For the teachers, I found a nice 12(twelve) to 14(fourteen) inches pen at the store for less than a dollar, I bought it and just added some finishing touches. The gift I made was a pen with a butterfly made from two hearts taped together. There's a small size chocolate at the back too.
Here's how I made the butterfly, cut 2(two) small hearts and 2(two) a little bigger hearts. Tape or glue the small heart over the big heart. Then tape them like a butterfly would look like.
Here's how the back looks like. I didn't have a glue and I made this in a rush. I am sure next time I can probably make it neater and not use the tape.
I think I only spent about $13 for everything. My kids had a great time at school and they also received gifts from their classmates and teachers. How about you? Did you make any Valentine craft as a gift to your love ones or friends? I hope you all have a nice valentines.
