Valentine Favors

Image of Valentine Favors

The kids will love to help making these Valentine Favors. They are pretty and sweet and fun to make and eat. You can pull together a Valentine party and invite friends and family to share the love. You can help the kids make matching invitations from these Sweet Valentine Cards

Trivia: The actual origin of favors is not known although it is widely believed that they were first shared in the late years of Medieval Europe and were given out as thank you tokens for guests attending weddings. Today favors are given out for any function where guests are invited to attend.

Supplies

Construction Paper
Ribbon
Scissors
Tissue Paper
Glue stick and or Elmer's glue

Instructions

To make these Valentine Favors, start with four sheets of different color construction paper

Main body of your Favor

Cut toilet paper roll in half (forming two smaller rolls approximately 2 ¼ inches long)

Take one sheet of colored construction paper. Cut out 3 ½ inch by 7 inch rectangle and put glue on one whole side of paper. Wrap paper around 2 ¼ inch roll .Turn the overlapping paper into the inside of the roll and press down
firmly to smooth out.

Favor Band

Take another sheet of construction paper, in a different color. Cut out 7 inch by ½ inch rectangle strip of paper and put glue on one side of paper. Wrap 7 inch by ½ inch rectangle strip around 2 ¼ inch roll about 3/8 inch from left side of roll, set roll aside.

Favor Heart

Take pink or red construction paper. Cut out one – 1 inch square and fold square in half.

Draw small half heart on folded edge of paper and cut out. Glue heart on right side of roll, set roll aside.

Flower

Take your last sheet of construction paper. Cut out one - 3 inch square

Fold square in half and then in half again to form small 1 ½ square (two side will have folds two will have open ends).

Draw a light guide line, diagonally, from the double folded corner to the double open corner. Draw a line from folded side to folded side, ¼ inch from the folded corner (forming a cross line in your diagonal pencil line and a small right triangle on the folded corner).

Click on Printables to see Flower Diagram. Draw half petals on the folded sides of the 1 ½ inch square (see diagram).

Draw a full petal from the folded corner to the open corner (see diagram).

With square still folded, cut along outside petal lines (dotted lines on diagram) and open to make your flower .

With two fingers holding the center of flower and the base of each petal, very gently pull the petal (between middle finger and thumb nail) from above the base of the flower petal to the top point of petal. This will curl petals. Repeat action on each petal until all petals curl slightly.

Glue flower on to favor band directly across from heart decoration on right side of roll

Paste Brown MINI REESE'S PIECES peanut butter candy in center of the daisy and let dry.

Inside Favor

Cut a piece of colored tissue paper about 7 inches wide and 1 ½ feet long

Stack 4 HERSHEY'S MINIATURES chocolate bars on top of each other and tape together

Roll candy up inside tissue paper (forming a kind of tissue paper tube). Give to someone special.
