Homemade Valentine’s Day Gift Idea: “Dough” You Want To Be My Valentine?

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

In addition to the cute Homemade Valentine’s Day Gift idea that I posted yesterday, check out this adorable gift idea submitted by reader, Jill:

Items Needed:

* Rose Art Play Dough 5 packs (purchased at Target, 70% off after Christmas)
* Cello Treat Bags (70% off after Christmas)
* Curling Ribbon (purchased at Kmart, 90% off after Christmas)
* Paper (free at Staples after Easy Rebate)

I put two packs of play dough in each bag, tied it with ribbon and added a cute tag. I was able to make 40 adorable valentines that the kids will enjoy…..retail price would be about $25 and thanks to you and Hip2Save, my cost was about $5.

(Thanks, Jill – cute idea!)

Homemade Valentine’s Day Gift Idea

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

How cute is this?! If you are looking for an affordable and thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift to give to a teacher, neighbor, or friend… look no further! Check out this creative and simple craft idea that reader, Tiffany, emailed in about:

If any of your readers are interested, here is a very cute and inexpensive teachers Valentine gift idea that I made. I’m even giving some to my girlfriends who are single.

Items Needed:

4 inch clay pot $1.29
Glass jar $1.00
3 inch clay pot saucer $0.79
1 inch dowel cap $3.29 plus 40% off with 16
Red craft paint $0.59 (I made 12 with one bottle!)
White craft paint $0.59
Foam hearts $2.99 (150 pieces in a pack)
Clear small size basket gift bags $4.99 plus 40% off with 16
Curling ribbon

Sounds like a lot but some stuff you may already have on hand. You paint the pot and saucer red, glue the glass jar to the bottom of the pot, glue dowel on saucer and assemble. I filled mine with M&M’s, kisses and conversation hearts but you could use any candy. I also painted little white dots for some detail and glued on foam hearts but not necessary if you don’t want to.

As you can see they are adorable and if I divide up the cost it is about $4 per gift. Also, you can make these for any occasion. For example, you could change the base color and fill it with Happy Birthday mints from the Dollar Tree and put a foam cake in the middle or something. Use your imagination. Have fun!!!

(Thanks, Tiffany – I love this idea!)
