Are you looking for a quick and inexpensive gift for classmates, teachers, friends and neighbors for Valentine’s Day? These Valentine Crackers are so easy to make that my 6 year old is actually making them for her class herself in a simpler version. A bonus to this project is that you get to recycle at the same time!
I've used recycled paper towel tubes cut in half for this project, just covered them with pretty papers and added candy inside.
You can decorate the ends with doilies and tissue paper...
Or you can gather pretty ribbon like I did here and hot glue it onto the edges...
Add punched hearts to write the name of the receiver on, or add tags tied around them!
Visit the Pink Paislee blog to read more about these and see the full list of supplies that I used.

P.S. I might have to learn how to make these...how cute are these "conversational heart cookies" featured on www.pizzazzerie.com!
Excuse me while I go find a snack. Now I'm hungry for something sweet!
