A plain glass container (craft stores such as Hobby Lobby, Michael’s or JoAnn carry them, as well as many discount stores), colored tissue paper and diluted glue can work together to create a charming Valentine gift or gift packaging. Whether used open or closed, the finished product can create a temporary delight or long-lasting memory. A single heart to highlight a vase or a chain of hearts around a jar of candy will make Valentine’s Day a lasting memory for the recipient.
Clean glass bottle or jar (plastic for younger crafters)
Colored tissue wrapping paper
Any clear-drying household glue
Narrow paint brush or fine sponge spreader
Embellishments as desired
