love is in the air. i can smell it. you can almost taste it. i do wonder how they celebrate valentine’s day in other parts of the world; or if they even have valentine’s day. we love the season of love here in the Philippines. just as we are known for a month-long celebration of Christmas, we also almost have a month-long celebration of valentine’s. i love it!
// any chocolate bar or candy of your choice (i used a chocolate wafer, Pik-One) [Php 69] for a box of 12
// wrapping paper which i bought from regina’s in greenhills [Php 159] for 24 sheets
// clear tape
// sticker paper [Php 49] from expressions
1// pick a pattern from your wrapping paper book. gift wrappers work well too.
2// measure the dimensions of the chocolate bar. add a few centimeters on both sides to cover the entire bar.
3// cut your paper in the determined size.
4// put your chocolate bar face down and tape the tear flaps to the bar.
5// place the bar face down on the center of your paper, and tape the paper at the point where the ends meet.
6// print fun and friendly messages on your sticker paper and stick them to the front of your chocolate bar. some of the messages i wrote included: chocolates speak louder than words, ich liebe dich, ti amo, i love you more than chocolates, you are loved, so good to see you, hi there!
happy crafting! much love to y’all!
