I decided this year to buck the trend of traditional Valentine's chocolate.
(Besides the grocery store already had Easter chocolate displayed.)
So, I bought my family their favourite chocolate bars. Yes that's right!
I love to create something out of stuff I already have around my house.
First I wrapped each chocolate bar with plain white printer paper....it was handy.
Then I took a bit of fabric and ripped it into strips to create the ribbon.
For the tags I used my Underwood typewriter to type my messages.
I cut out hearts around the messages and then used a thumb tack to
punch holes so embroidery thread could be strung through them.
I used a small whole punch to create a hole in the top of the heart to string bakers twine through.
Then I tied the fabric ribbon around the white package
and cut tails at the end. The final touch was adding the heart tag!
