DIY and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hello!  It’s been a while.  It’s just a note to say thank you so much to those who visited, followed, liked my posts and left comments on my blog. It really means a lot to me.  To my blogging community, I apologize for not being able to visit yours in a while. I hope to be able to visit soon.  To my new followers, thank you for following.

I also would like to wish you a Happy Valentine’s day in advance. To celebrate the occasion, I just thought I’d share with all the moms out there a very simple, inexpensive and fun DIY exchange treats for school for Valentine’s day.

Materials needed:

  • Pen
  • Self-adhesive labels of your choice (available at Michael’s)
  • Lollipops

Steps:

Remove the labels from the plastic bag and separate them.

Write “Happy Valentine’s Day!” and who it’s from.

The backing sheet is split in the center.  Find it and peel away to expose the adhesive side of the label.

Attach the label on the lollipop stick.

Just wrap it around and press the end (of the label) together to secure.

Repeat with the remaining pops.

Place them back in the box and seal.  They are ready to be given away.  🙂

And of course, Valentine’s day is not complete without a cake, flowers, and chocolates.  So, I made this mini delectable Valentine’s cake embellished with fondant, fresh and fondant flowers, and pink chocolate candy hearts (on top) to celebrate the occasion paired with your favorite tea or hot cocoa drink; perfect to end the evening. 🙂 Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤

    • Thank you John. I hope so because it’s really easy and stress free to do. I made 2 boxes for both my children and it didn’t take me long to finish. I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s day as well John. Have a great week and thanks for stopping by. It’s much appreciated. 🙂

  1. The cake looks beautiful. I like the idea of the lollipops. Nice one.
    Could you make a video on how to make fondant. Infact incase you do not have a channel then if you start a youtube channel with recipies and so on, I’ll always be there to look up to it. Thank you x

    • Hello Margaret. Thank you for the compliment. It’s much appreciated.
      Oh, I have thought about having a YouTube channel a long time ago, but I’m camera shy. However, it’s been on my mind and I’ve been thinking about really doing it. I just need to find the time. You will be my first viewer if that’s the case. 😀 There are videos on how to make fondant from scratch on YouTube. You might want to check it out. 🙂
