DIY: Valentine’s Day Tote
Perfect for collecting or passing out Valentines or candy!
Everyone loves piñatas at birthday parties; why not add a little twist to this upcoming Valentine's Day? We’ve got the perfect Valentine’s Day tote for your little one to collect all of their secret admirer notes and candy hearts on Valentine’s Day. For the older audience, this Valentine tote can act as candy holder to set out on your desk or table to offer to your friends and guests!
What you will need:
- Empty Old Orchard Juice bottle
- Colorful tissue paper
- Scissors and/or hole punch
- Extras: stickers, glitter, accessories, etc.
Take your empty Old Orchard juice bottle and cut off the top, so you can fit in as much candy and cards as possible!
Cut your colorful tissue paper in to 1-2” strips wide and 18” long.
Cut into each strip of tissue paper along the short side about ¾ of the way so the edges are frayed, but the whole strip is still intact.
Take each strip of tissue paper and wrap around the bottle starting at the bottom and working your way up. Here you can decide what colors you want to use and if there is any desired pattern, go for it!
Take your hole-punch or scissors and punch out a hole on each side of the bottle near the top. Weave the ribbon through from one hole to the other to create a simple handle.
Feel free to add any other accessories! You can notice we added a few heart stickers to the top to make it more festive.
