This is an easy and heartwarming gift which can be used for
Valentine's Day or any occasion. It's so much fun and so easy,
that you can make 2 or 3 and also give them as a special
gifts for teachers, grandparents, parents or friends!
You will need:
*A scoop- a powdered detergent scoop or a sugar/flour scoop that
can be purchased from the kitchen tool section of the store.
*Paper or index card and markers
*Paper lunch sack or brown craft paper
Wash and dry the scoop. Fill with Hershey Kisses. Place in the
middle of a square of plastic wrap, gather the wrap up into the
middle, twist and tie with pretty ribbon. Cut a piece of paper to
measure 3 1/2 x 5 inches long or use an index card. Fold in
half. Punch a hole in one corner. On the front write "to" and
"from" with your name and the person you are giving the gift
to, then inside write the following:
A scoop full of kisses for you
Because I love you and all that you do.
Thanks Mom! (Or the name of the person)
Happy Valentine's Day!
You can change "Thanks" to Happy Birthday, Get Well,
or any message you would like to add! If you want to
give to a teacher, simply change love to "appreciate".
String a piece of ribbon through the hole you punched
and tie it to the gathered plastic wrap where you tied it
Decorate the lunch bag with designs, pictures, stickers
or even fabric cut-outs. Place your scoop into the bag,
fold over and punch two holes in the top of the bag, so they
go through the layers. Now string ribbon through both
holes and tie into a bow. Your gift is ready!
