Create an “I Dig You” Valentine Gift

#Valentine #Gift #TigerStrypesBlog

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to find something that was easy to make and fun to give as a gift to friends and family.  I saw a project like this on Pinterest, and thought it would be fun to make.  I was able to find the little shovels in a back corner of the discount store on clearance, so I was able to save a lot of money on the project.  You could use whatever type shovel you’d like, I just figured that these could be reused later in the year.

Who’s the person that you dig, and would you give one to, if you decided to make some?  Leave a comment and let me know.  I sure hope that you like it!! I hope you have a blessed day, and please be sure to comment and share this craft on your social media channels – thanks so much!!

Materials/Tools Used:

  • Clear Bag
  • Plastic Shovel
  • Candy
  • Cricut Explore
  • Craft Paper

  • & Time!

Instructions for the I Dig You Valentine Craft:

I started by putting one of the plastic shovels (that I found at the store for only $0.88) into a clear bag.

Next, I poured in some candy hearts, that most people love receiving for Valentine’s Day as a treat.

When the bag was as full as I wanted, I tied it off with a sparkly pipe cleaner.  You can usually find these at the dollar store and they can be used for so many things.

I then used my Cricut Explore to make some tags for the treat.  I put in the saying and it wrote it on the craft paper.  With some of the letters being bubble style, I had to fill in some of the letters, since the Cricut software isn’t designed to do that yet…hopefully they will in the future.  Then I cut the pieces out into a rounded shape to adhere to the little chalkboards that I found at the store.  You could always use chalk, but I figured that the person who got the gift, could just remove the paper tag and use that again! 🙂

After the tags were finished, I just clipped one onto a piece of the pipe cleaner that I left sticking out from closing up the bag.

To decorate it a bit more, I used some holiday ribbon that I found at the dollar store, to just tie up the top and add some flair.  You could add flowers, or one of those candy pieces that looks like a rose.  Totally up to you.

Once it’s finished, you can give it to whoever you wish.  It brings a smile and lets them know that you care for them.

What an innovative gift to make and to give! Even if you don’t have a cricut you can always make labels. They sell them in office supply stores.

How cute this is! I may help my grandchildren make one for their mom. I don’t have a Circuit, however we could use stencils. I would look for clearance garden designed items for on it like a plastic vine with a tiny vegetable and a green sparkly pipe cleaner. Just a thought. I always love your crafty ideas!
