A Token Gift Made from Repurposed Trash for Valentine's Day

This tutorial is an example of something you can make as a ‘token’ gift that doesn’t cost anything but shows you took the time to make something for them to show you care.

Materials Used:  DIY Valentine’s Day Gift

– Bottle – Wrapping paper – Thin cardboard packaging – Twine – Scissors – Gift tag punch

Step 1: Prepare your Vanilla Extract Bottle

The first thing I did was remove the label and the little gold ring below the bottle cap. I just snapped it off with my scissors.

Step 2: Cut out Tiny Heart Shapes

Now the aim of this little token gesture gift is to fill the vanilla bottle with tiny little red and white hearts.

Step 3: Put your Hearts in the Bottle

This step is pretty  self-explanatory. Just stuff your tiny hearts into the bottle, and when you are happy with how full it is, shut the lid!

The last thing I did was create a gift tag or message tag using some thin cardboard packaging.

Step 4: Add a Gift Tag

Mine was a lavender color, but you could use white or red packaging if you have it, or even brown cardboard if you like the crafty brown paper look.
