I love coming up with homemade Valentines. I love the color schemes, the cheesy puns, the creativity. Last night while laying in bed I had a great idea. Hot Chocolate Bomb Valentines with a printable “You’re the Bomb Valentine” tag. But wait, what about EOS Lip Balm? That would be perfect too! Or a bath bomb! There are so many things a You’re the Bomb Valentine printable tag could be used for. This morning I woke up and headed to Walmart to get my supplies and check out what I ended up with:
So flippin’ cute? Right? I found a silicone heart mold so made a heart-shaped hot chocolate bomb. If you want to know how to make them, check out my Hot Chocolate Bomb Gift Tags and Tutorial. But wait! There’s more!
Fun, no? That is EOS lip balm wrapped up in tissue paper to make the perfect Valentine bomb! I looked for bouncy balls, because they’re inexpensive and we all know kids love them, but I didn’t find any. If your kids are bored and need something to do, have them start making rainbow loom band bouncy balls! They can knock out a bunch in time for Valentine’s Day!
Ready to make some Valentine Bombs? Let’s get started! If you’re just looking for the printable tag, scroll down to the bottom of this post to download them!
Lip Balm, Bouncy Ball, Small Candies, etc.
Cut a square of tissue paper to fit the size of your item. Place the lip balm or other item into the square of tissue paper. Place a pipecleaner so that it is behind the item (not shown).
Fold the tissue paper up and over the item, with the pipe cleaner sticking out the top.
Tie off the top with baker’s twine. Trim the pipe cleaner to size so that it looks like the fuse of the bomb.
Cut out the You’re the Bomb Valentine gift tag. Punch a hole in the top.
Attach to the baker’s twine and finish with a bow.
Super simple, super cute, definitely a Valentine’s favorite!
