I am a sucker for cute and silly cupcakes! If you have been to my site before, chances are you have seen some cupcakes or other cute desserts. I don’t make anything fancy because I am not a professional. My goal with making desserts is to make them simple so myself and others can actually achieve the look. These fun little kissing lips cupcakes are really cute for Valentine’s Day. It’s a day all about love and love involves some smooches. My daughter knows I give way too many smooches. She is at the age where she isn’t wanting me to kiss her as much so I have to sneak them in when I can. She’s a little fiveager, acting like a teenager but she’s only five. It is my job as a parent to kiss her in public and embarrass her in front of her friends. These kissing lips Valentine’s Day cupcakes are a fun treat for Galentine’s parties as well. I made them a few different ways to try them out and see what looked best. I tried to give them a bit of an illustrated/cartoon look. You can get creative with how to make them.

Whenever I am at the store around Valentine’s Day I see these little chocolate boxes with cheesy pictures on them. I typically just pass them by because the pictures of flowers or puppies don’t call to me. This year I decided those boxes could look really cute with a little extra love. They just needed a makeover to turn into the perfect gifts. It doesn’t take much to make these decorated dollar store chocolate box gifts. All I did was add some paint in a few fun colors and look how pretty they turned out! The paint completely transformed the boxes into modern fun gifts. These would be great gifts for Galentine’s Day, to hand out to friends, or family. I always have a hard time thinking of little gifts to give that also have a bit of a personal touch to them. Also, I sometimes just need an excuse to paint something. It had been way too long since I had taken out my paint brushes. I wouldn’t say I am the best painter ever but since I am not a professional I know anyone could make these pretty boxes.
Guess what? You’re like really pretty! I made these fun little printable Valentine’s Day gift boxes for friends and the person you are in a relationship with. I have ones for your gal friends and I also made up some funny ones to give to your love. The Galentine’s ones are the ones in the pictures with “You’re Like Really Pretty” “XOXO” and “Besides Chocolate You’re My Fav”. The one for your love are “You’re Really Hot” “So Hot Want To Touch The Hiney” and “Roses Are Red Blah Blah Chocolate”. What can I say, I am kind of a romantic! Okay, I’m a little weird with the mushy lovey dovey stuff. I like to show my love in sarcastic joke and dessert form. These printable Valentine’s Day gift boxes can be filled with chocolates or even other tiny gifts. They aren’t very big but super cute. I filled them with some easy colorful candy bark! I just used pink candy melts and colorful heart sprinkles. You can put them in a little bag and put that in the box or line it with parchment paper and put the bark right in there. It’s seriously such an easy gift to give.
I like everything to be bright and colorful, including my food! It doesn’t take much to make boring brown chocolates look bright and cheery. This Valentine’s Day I am giving my daughter little treats spread out throughout the month. Nothing expensive just little gifts to show her I care. She will be getting stickers, a little puzzle, figurines, and of course her favorite is the chocolates. Honestly, it’s my favorite part of Valentine’s Day too! The best part of giving her this box of chocolates was when she opened it up and was completely shocked by the fun colors. I made these with a dollar store chocolate box. Buy a bunch of little chocolate boxes to hand out to friends or family, the more the merrier! Anyone could make colorful chocolates with these easy steps, trust me if I can do it you can too. I made them for my daughter in her favorite colors pink and turquoise. However, you could use any colors you want such as red and white for Valentine’s Day. You can also buy a bag of heart shaped chocolates and then put the finished colorful chocolates in little clear bags.
For every holiday I have to do something fun and goofy. Okay, usually multiple goofy projects because that is how I roll. These pool noodle cupid’s arrows are a blast! We have been throwing them around and using them for games for the last week. You can make them for a Valentine’s party game, just for fun with kids, and to hang up as a decoration at parties. I don’t know if it is just an Arizona thing but most people I know have pool noodles in the garage that are just hanging out and not being used this time of year. This is an excellent way to use them. You can also pick some up from the dollar store, Walmart or Target! One pool noodle makes two arrows. You can use them on their own to just throw around and try aim and hit someone. You can also try to get them through a hoop or a large heart like the one I made for a photo booth here: http://valeventgal.com/2015/02/valentines-day-kissing-booth/
I’ve been decorating for Valentine’s Day and I wanted to have a few decorations that I made myself. I decided to make these crepe paper flower and ruffle letters. I have wanted to make crepe paper flowers for a while and I am so glad I made them. I did the ruffle letter as well to save some time since the flowers take a while to make. Although I really enjoyed making them. I just put on some music and played around with crepe paper flowers, that is my idea of a fun night! The great thing about these is they were cheap to make and you don’t need a ton of materials.
I just love how these you have a pizza my heart cookies turned out! I am not an expert cookie maker yet, although after these I am working on my cookie decorating skills. There are just so many cute things you can make with cookies. Since I am not a cookie expert I know you can make these even if you are a cookie decorating newbie! If you know someone that loves pizza these are really cute to make for them. Also they can be my heart belongs to pizza(because really it does) for a Galentines Day party. I may be sing but I have pizza so I’m good. Plus I can eat pizza in my pjs looking like a hot mess and no one can judge me. It’s the little pleasures in life like that I enjoy. I made these cookies with sugar cookies and red and white royal icing.
These candy love bugs are cute and easy to make. I made them with my little love bug :). My obsession with candy eyes continues because they just make everything cute! I made lady bugs candies for my daughter’s first birthday a while back. She is 4 now so wow more than 3 years ago! Now she is a big helper making candy with me. Ok she’s a helper for a minute then she gets bored and I finish up. Luckily these love bugs are easy to make and no baking involved.
What you need to make them:
Love is in the air! Have you been shot by cupid’s arrow? I made these fun diy cupid’s arrows and shot them through some heart shaped cupcakes. You can also put them in other Valentine’s Day foods. Even health foods because apparently you can’t always have cupcakes. They are easy to make and really fun for Valentine’s Day parties.
What you need to make them:
pink or red paper straws
Cut paper straws into pieces about an inch and a half long. Stick a heart sticker facing down to the top of on of the straw pieces and one facing down on the bottom of another piece of straw. Cut the top rounded part of the heart on the bottom piece. Then cut small slits lined up down one side and down the other.
