A Creative Valentine

Instead of going to the store and buying Valentine cards for your loved ones...get creative! It's fun & fairly easy to do! Best of all the person you give it to will be thrilled to know you took the time to do something so personalized for them!

I have done these for birthdays too. In fact I made one for our daughter's 20th birthday and our 12 year old daughter told me that she wanted me to make her one for her birthday...well she just had her birthday a couple weeks ago...and I forgot to make her a candy bar card. Luckily she forgot too! So...guess what she will be getting for Valentine's Day?? Yep, a Valentine's Candy Bar Card!

How to Make a Candy Bar Card

Write down the names of candy bars

Come up with something cute to write using the names of the candy bars

Now, go buy all the candy bars that you will need and a large poster board

Space everything out on the posterboard before you start hot gluing the candy bars. You may want to use your printer to print out your words so that you can cut them to properly fit on the posterboard.

A few ideas to get your creative mind a flowing

My Dearest (Sugar Baby):
Happy Valentines Day. May this bouquet bring you a (Snicker) as you read my message. It will not make you (Chunky) and I am not playing (Twix) on you.
You are my (Bit-O-Honey), you are worth more than a (100 Grand) to me, I get (Goo Goo) eyes every time I see you.
Our (Good-N-Plenty) life together is like shopping on (5th Avenue) on (Pay Day). I wish you (Mounds) of (Almond Joy) on this Valentines Day.
Hugs and Kisses
(Now and Later)

OR if you like you can make a Candy Bouquet like this

and just make a heart shaped card to include the candy bar poem.

Now go have fun & get creative!!

Let me know when you come up with your own creative sayings for your candy bar card.

These are so cute!

Just wondering how you are doing and if you had a lot of ice. We had around 6 or so inches of snow mixed with sleet. No freezing rain! Counting our blessings!

Cute ideas! If you want to do a smaller card, you can use minature candy bar wrappers.
