Valentine's Day Cards with Candy/Food Ideas ~ Creative labels turn everyday treats into Valentine's Day delights perfect for sharing at school or work....you can make these charming little gifts by packaging treats with homemade tags.

These cute little "love bugs" are impossible to resist -- add a pair of googly eyes and pipe cleaner antennae to a stick of gum and adhere the creatures to a heart shape to make a fun Valentine's Day gift.

There's a reason they call fruit "nature's candy," and sweet, mouth-watering pears are no exception. Punch a hole through a printed label, and use decorative string or ribbon to attach to the stem of the fruit.

Any treat can be made sweeter with a fun label. The key is clever wordplay, letting the food inspire a witty saying. Use your computer to make labels, and print them on cardstock. Start with our free patterns available at the end of each slide.


Group smaller pieces of candy into clear baggies and staple homemade cardstock labels to the top of each bag. Arrange the candy into a colorful pattern, such as the grid of Starbursts shown here.

For an inexpensive alternative to ready-made Valentine's Day candy, attach the personalized label using a stapler. Look for cute ways to work the candy's name into the message, as shown.

Supply your classmates or colleagues with something yummy to wash down all the candy. Wrap labels around a drink bottle, or use string to attach a gift tag around the top.
