I love finding fun, yummy candy gifts to give out for Valentine's. (Okay, for just about any day.) So when I saw this Valentine's Hugs and Kisses Candy Jar by Lil' Luna, I knew I was going to need to make one for my teens. I already made a Valentine Countdown Calendar for my younger two, and I'm working on a (more in depth) Valentine Countdown for Dear Hubby, so this was going to be perfect for Drama Queen and the Perfectionist.
I started by finding a Kerr pint mason jar. I like the Kerr brand best because it's clear on all sides with only the writing showing in one area. Then I went to Lil' Luna and printed out her free printable. I did resize it to be 2 1/4 inches by 3 inches so it would fit over the Kerr writing. Then I used my Xyron to make it into a sticker and placed it on the jar.
The jar fit 55 Hershey kisses and Hershey hugs. I didn't have any Valentine colors available so instead went with the different flavors of kisses. There are Air Delights, Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, Caramel, Cherry, and Cookies and Cream kisses. Plus a good handful of Hershey hugs.
To make it a little more fun, I added our Conversation Heart Kiss Sticker Printable to the kisses. My daughter will LOVE the fun sayings on these while enjoying the chocolate instead of the powder of regular Conversation hearts.
I finished it off by cutting a circle of red fabric and tying on a red bow to spice it up. I think both kids are going to love these and I am super excited to have Lil' Luna share this great printable. Run over there and grab it yourself HERE and go make a little sweet gift for your loved ones! (And tell her I said "HI!")
