I found these cute little plastic heart boxes in the Dollar Spot bins at Target this week. A package of eight of them for only a dollar! You can't beat that!
I immediately decided that they would make the perfect little Valentine's day favor boxes for the girls and their friends. They just needed a little embellishment! If you want to make some, here's what you'll need:
-Heart-shaped favor boxes
-White craft glue and foam brush
-Glitter (the more sparkly, the better)
-Paper flower embellishments
To begin, open the heart boxes and coat all exterior surfaces (except the bottom) with a thin layer of glue. Sprinkle on your glitter until well coated and shake off any excess. I used three shades of Martha's pink and lavender for variety. Allow to dry completely.
Fill the boxes with little candies or other treats. I used the classic conversation hearts (I just selected the colors from the bag that I wanted to use).
Reassemble your boxes and wrap a small length of ribbon around the entire box, securing it on the bottom with some double-sided tape or a dab of hot glue. Attach some paper flowers to the top...mine are from Martha, but most craft stores will carry a variety of brands.
Now, you have some very pretty (and inexpensive!) little favors to give to your favorite valentines...
