Need a little something for someone special this Valentine’s Day? Here are a couple fabulous inexpensive ideas!
Hidden inside these pretty little gifts is a box of 24 crayons! I love this idea because it is a great item for any little ones you have without sugaring them up on candy. The card stock was stamped using a Stampin’ Up Stampin’ Around wheel. You could also use any sort of background stamp. It is cut taller than the crayon box and then folded around the box. The top is carefully folded and punched. A length of ribbon is threaded through one of the punched openings, around the bottom of the crayon box and then back out the other punched openings. A bow tied at the top holds the box in place. The front can be decorated with a matted stamped image or other embellishments. I chose to use paper doilies and glittered dimensional foam hearts.
These little notepad sets are another non-sugar option and are nice gifts for older “kids”. I purchase the notepads throughout the year when they are on sale. They can be decorated with a matted stamped image or other embellishments. Once again, I used glittered dimensional hearts. Include a coordinated pen. I like to find the clear barrel pens. You can take them apart and insert paper inside the barrel that has been stamped to coordiate with the notepad. Place in a cellophane gift bag and tie with a pretty bow to add the finishing touches.
