Valentine Day Crafts

If you're looking for some last minute Valentine's Day crafts to make for teachers, neighbors or friends, click here for a great idea from one of my friends. I made these yesterday for my daughter's teachers and it was a very easy craft that turned out adorable. The example given on the link is for Christmas, but I used Valentine designed scrap paper to make it more appropriate for this time of year.

My friend, Nancy, also had a great idea for a teacher's gift:

1. Buy the Target brand hand sanitizer (like Purell).
2. Peel off the front and back labels and then take a product like "Goo Gone" to remove the residue.
3. Decorate the clear bottle with cute Valentine stickers.
4. Take some Valentine ribbon and tie a cute bow around the bottom of the hand pump.

Since we are still in the midst of cold season, any teacher would welcome this gift to sit on his/her desk!

LOVE these ideas. I was actually at the Dollar Store the other day and they have ALL the stuff (including goo gone) to do the hand sanitizer which would make it a GREAT GIFT for $4. WHOA...doesn't get any better than that!

I love those boxes! My friend did one for a little girls birthday gift box. I wonder if she got the idea from Nikki's blog. My gifts will definately be given in these! I'm off to Micheals!

What a great idea! I'm going out today to buy the materials so my son and I can make them tonight for his school party on Friday. Thank you so much for the great tip! For uncreative moms like me, this is such a blessing!
