Valentine’s Day is less than a month away and before you know it, the whole world will be covered in chocolate covered strawberries and conversation hearts.
If, however, you’re looking for a fun, sugar-free gift for your favorite Valentine, this is the perfect tutorial! Throw a few markers in a pretty pencil cup, add the free “You’ve Made A Mark” tag, and that’s it. This would be a great gift for any student, office pal, or teacher!
“You’ve Made A Mark” Easy Valentine Gift
- Pencil Cup
- “You’ve Made A Mark” Free Label
Step One. Decorate your pencil cup. I found this inexpensive one in the dollar section at Target and loved the pretty mint color.
Adding a pretty heart embellishment only took about 15 minutes with some pink yarn and a large embroidery needle. Totally not necessary but it really does add a fun handmade element to the gift!
Step Two. Enclose markers in a plastic baggie (or leave in the original packaging) and secure “You’ve Made a Mark” Free Gift Tag with a piece of twine.
Done and done! How easy was that? I love that this gift is super practical and corney all at the same time! Plus, what student or co-worker wouldn’t appreciate some nice new markers? I know I would!
Hope you found this easy Valentine’s Day gift useful!
