Happy Valentine’s Day!

Well, the title says it all, Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

How do you celebrate? I have long given up on the notion of being swept away with diamonds and champagne (and this year I’m fairly certain my husband commissioned our middle daughter to make a card for him to give me – um … say what?!) but the important part of my day is to show my love for my family. They are my forever Valentines after all!

Every year I try to make something for my girls. Some years I just have time to make them a card, but other years they wake up to something extra special. I’ve made Heart Shaped Photo Books (2011), fun Heart Shaped Toppers in a bucket of candy (2012), Heart Decor which busted my stash of Valentine’s Day embellishments (2014),  cute Mailboxes (2016), and more than I don’t have blog posts for.

This year I’m playing along with one of the February Challenges over at Paper Issues and making sure to use hearts on these super cute paper mugs full of candy! What girl doesn’t like receiving a bag of candy on Valentine’s Day, am I right?

I filmed the process so here it is.

These would be great for any occasion. How about as birthday party favour bags? So fun!

Thank you to Holly from Ribbons & Glue for posting this tutorial on her blog! I found it through Pinterest and it’s from 2011 but no less relevant when you’re looking for a fun new way to package treats!

Hope you have a fun Valentine’s Day. Be sure to tell your loved ones how important they are to you and of course, eat chocolate and drink wine!

Cheers!
