Bang Me Valentine

It’s the best time of the year! I love Valentine’s Day because I love to do surprises and and give gifts for all the people in my life. Here is a funny (PG-13) Valentine you can make for your lover. It made me laugh. It’s really easy to make, we just removed the “BANG’ flag from a gimmick gun (you can get them here or from a joke store) and then get some fabric the same size and make a “BANG ME” flag and glue it in. It took about 15 minutes to make. When your lover pulls the trigger a flag unfurls with a special message.

Valentines Confetti Crackers DIY

I usually like to make these crackers around Christmas time, but this year I thought it would be fun to mix it up and make some as Valentines instead. These are such a fun surprise for friends. You can fill them with funny love notes and treats. When you pull on each side of the crackers, they snap open and all the goodies pop out. I’m a huge fan of Lindt LINDOR Truffles: they are my favorite chocolates to give during holidays and they fit perfectly inside these crackers (especially with their pretty red and pink packaging!) I also things these would be cute place settings at a Valentines Day feast! Find the full instructions, sources and more photos below! (PS – These would work great as Valentine’s necklaces too!)
