Valentine’s is my favorite. I’m not sure why. It might be because my favorite color is red. Or that Valentine’s Day is right after my birthday. Or it might be that so many Christmas items go on sale the month before, and can be repurposed to make awesome Valentine’s crafts at a fraction of the price! Like this Chocolate. It comes with a Santa on the wrapper (scroll down to see), but peel that off, and add my free printable wrapper, and you’ve got instant Valentine’s Chocolate goodness. I bought this chocolate bar just last week at 75% off the pre-Christmas price!
This Project is part of Craft Lightning Week. All week long, my crafty Co-Hosts (Angie from The Country Chic Cottage and Laura from Make Life Lovely) and I are sharing a new Valentine’s craft that can be made in 15 minutes or less. And, we’ve invited a bunch of our crafty friends to join in as well. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to check out today’s 15 minute or less Valentine’s Day craft ideas!
To make this Valentine’s Chocolate, you’ll need:
Russel Stover Santa Chocolate
Valentine’s Chocolate Printable
note: If you can’t find these Santa Chocolates, check out my Valentine’s Chocolate Bar craft instead.
Cut out the printed shape.
Remove the paper wrapper from the chocolate (leave on the foil). Then wrap in the new paper.
Tape flap down with double-sided tape. Your Christmas chocolate has been converted to Valentine’s Chocolate!
I made it a two dollar bill because Valentine’s Day isn’t about big sums of money – it is about two people getting together. Which is also why I left the center of the wrapper blank. You can add a picture of you and your sweetie, write in your names, or do anything you like to make this chocolate bar extra special for the two of you.
