Valentine’s Day has always been one of my favorite holidays. Long before I met my darling hubs, my mom made Valentine’s Day special for me and my sister by making us a special breakfast complete with a surprise at our seats. I’ve elected to carry on the tradition with my own family and relish preparing our Valentine’s Day celebration. This year I’m really trying to channel my holiday expert mama and adding extra special little details to the surprises I hand out.
And I’m starting with gift tags. By customizing a gift tag, I can dress up a plain bag or wrapping and instantly give it a Valentine’s Day feel. And you wouldn’t believe how easy it is to make your own heart day worthy gift tags! I scored my materials in the dollar section at Target, but you can find everything I used at your local craft supply store. I’ve definitely seen it all in Michael’s.
I chose stickers that I thought my Valentine’s would look (those being my kiddos, hubs and friends who are on “to receive a surprise” list.

1. Trim your twine and leave untied. I tied my ends so you could see the finish look, but you’ll want to leave them untied until you attach them to your gift.
2. Apply your stickers of choice.
3. There is no 3. Haha! That is literally it!
