Wrapping up your Sweets: part 2

The first Idea I want to share I saw on a segment of Good Things Utah last year for Valentine's Day and I just tweeked it a little to make it my own! 

These are Conversation Hearts Ipods! I love them so much, I think they are just the cutest things ever!  You would be the coolest mom on the block if you made these for your kids classmates. All you have to do is choose a pattern paper to wrap around your box, cut a circle and a square to go on them and add a heart in the middle for the button. I used Doodlebug Glitter Sweetheart Brads  Then think of some fun love songs to write on there like Call Me Maybe or Can I be Your Boyfriend. Cut a long piece of our Doodlebug Twine and tape it to some Hersey Kisses for the ear buds.  It did take a bit to put them together but I think the outcome is worth it!

The second idea is a bottle of Crush orange soda, one of my husbands favorites.  I covered it with paper and embellished it.  Then attached a tag that say's "I have a crush on you".  I didn't like the look of the bottle cap since it clashed with the colors so I used Doodle Bug Love Birds and Echo Park Love Story. Washi Tape, in a coordinating color, to cover up the cap.  So simple and so cute!  For both of these ideas I used Doodle Bug I hope you enjoy these ideas and there are more to come!  I Love Valentine's Day!!

Happy Crafting


  1. I am SO copying your Ipod idea. My daughter will seriously get a kick out of that. THANK you so much for sharing this idea. And I am loving the new Doodlebug Lovebirds line that popped into the store recently. Can't wait to get my order. Have a HAPPY HAPPY day! Smiles ~ Janet
