DIY Valentine's Day Favors

Here is a fun little Valentine's Day favor that is really easy to create!

What you will need:

1. paper straws
2. colored masking tape
3. cardstock (kraft color)

I bought these straws at Target last year, but you are welcome to use any kind of paper straw.


1. Start off by tracing the bottom of the straw onto a thicker cardstock. You can recycle what you have around the house as long as it is unused. Remember you will need 2 (a bottom and a top) for every straw "container". Cut them out.

2. Use tacky glue to glue on all the bottoms. Let dry over night to ensure that the adhesive has completed dried, since you will be putting candy in it. 

3. Fill with candy! I used mini m & ms but anything candy that fits would work. 

4. Cut strips of masking tape to size. Add the top cover and tape closed. 

Voila! done. You can add a cute tag with a sweet message to it if you wish! I used twisty ties to tie it to the paper straws and they worked great! 

Enjoy crafting!
