Valentine’s Day is near, you may want to give some sweats to your loved ones, but you need a special appearance for the sweets to impress your loved ones. A handmade container will impress more than a store bought. It will not cost you a lot as my idea is recycling some used things; in this case I used Pringles can and a decorative tissue paper which I get from a party that is still clean. It’s a cute way to show your love, especially those who love saving environment. Scroll down to see how I made this Love Container for Valentine’s Day.
Things To Prepare
It’s a short list of supplies that you need to prepare. Try to replace it with something similar to my material if you don’t have the same one. Just use whatever you have in your craft stash. Let’s see what are the list supplies which used to make this DIY Love Container for Valentine :
- Pringles can
- Decorative tissue paper
- Decorative paper
- Pink jute rope
- Rose ribbon ornaments
- Paper glue
- Clear glue
How To Make
To show how much we love our loved ones, . Anyway, just follow these easy steps on how to do DIY Love Container for Valentine :
1 . Make sure your Pringles can is cleaned. Wrap your Pringles can with a decorative paper. I used vertical lines with shades of pink decorative paper.
2. Cut a tissue paper on the picture that you like to use. Mine is a drawing of a Eiffel Tower in France with roses and macarons. I love it, it’s vintage and romantic.
3. Now paste the cut-tissue paper carefully to the wrapped-Pringles can. Use paper glue.
4. Then you can decorate the lid. Take some rose ribbon ornaments and paste it one by one around the Pringles lid. It goes well with the tissue paper pattern of roses.
5. Last touch is to draw or apply some glue to the side of the picture of Eiffel Tower a shape of heart. Use the pink jute rope to to make the heart. Isn’t it pretty?
I think it’s pretty enough to hold your yummy sweets and use it as a Valentine’s gift to your loved ones. A handmade gift plus sweets? That’s surely showers of love! By the way, it’s easy to make, right?
This Love Container project is my contribution to The Sustainable Craft Challenge Blog Hop hosted by Julie with her beautiful blog Sum of Their Stories. It’s a craft challenge with a sustainable principle behind it which comes in different theme every month. This month, the theme is “LOVE” and last month was “WARM“. I love to be part of this challenge as I love to upcycle things into something new, pretty and useful.
