This year I'm making most of my gifts by hand so Valentine's Day was a perfect way to get started. As I've already shared, I made Valentine themed gift tags and I dug those out of my stationery box. I also made my own Valentines to send in the mail.
I made English toffee and once it had set up I broke it into pieces.
Then I made my famous sugar cookies, iced them with a little vanilla glaze and decorated with homemade red sugar sprinkles. Colored sugar sprinkles are really easy to make.
You just mix a little food coloring with granulated sugar, allow it to dry and then mix it all up again. Easy and thrifty.
I put the toffee into Valentine treat bags I had bought at the dollar store last year.
I did the same with the cookies.
Then I tied them off with the gift tags I'd made. The baker's twine on the tags was perfect too.
Plenty of delicious treats to share with my loved ones.
I also made a plate of cookies to share with my co-workers (yes, even the big meanie, she needs kindness more than anything).
How did you share the love this Valentine's Day?
