These pretty ersonalized wrappers make Valentine treat gifts really special!

Here's an awesome (and easy) idea for a Valentine gift: sweet treats wrapped in handmade gift wrap. You can use anything from plain or colored paper and washi tape as I did here or use decorative or pretty-patterned gift wrap.

Add some embellishments like hearts, colorful baker's twine, or rickrack ribbon and voila! You'll have beautiful Valentine treats and gifts to give out to friends and classmates. (To make the hearts, I used a heart-shaped paper punch but if you don't have one, you can simply fold a piece of paper in half and draw a half of a heart and cut it out; when you unfold the paper, you will have a perfectly symmetrical heart. For an example of how to do that, see my instructions for how to make a paper heart wreath.)

These Valentine's treat gift wraps are so pretty, your child's friends and classmates will never guess that they were actually super-easy to make. And since you don't need much more than paper and/or washi tape, it's budget-friendly, too! And of course it's fun to design and make your own gift wrap, which also makes this project a wonderful Valentine craft for kids.
