Valentine’s Day is traditionally reserved for couples in love. But who says single girls can’t celebrate Valentine’s Day too? So, I decided to show my friends how much I love them by putting together little gift bags filled with candy. I had an idea of what I wanted to do and I looked at examples on Pinterest.
I headed to the dollar section at Target because they have really cute items at a cheap price. The Valentine’s Day section in Target is awesome. It’s filled with candy, decorations, cards and lots of stuffed animals. I picked out Valentine-themed felt envelopes and the best candy. I looked to see if I could find any other cute containers to put all of my candy in other than the envelopes that I found in the dollar section. But I decided the envelopes were the best way to go and the fact that they were only $1 really influenced my decision. I left Target with all of my supplies all under $10.
As soon as I got back from Target I put together my gift bags. Creating gift bags for friends was so much fun! Not only because I got to give them gifts, but because I got to keep some of the candy too!
