We are Mentos to Be Valentine Gift & 60 DIY Valentine Ideas!

We are Mentos to Be - the cutest little Valentine gift ever!

You had to know this was coming, right?  I mean, Valentines’ Day is my absolute FAVORITE thing to celebrate right after my birthday and Christmas.  I have already shared a few Valentine projects – my heart art and yarn wrapped trees.  But I won’t stop there!  I am a shameless fan of all things holiday!  And if there is a holiday, you know I will celebrate.  And I if I am celebrating, you know I am making a mason jar gift!  I used lemon drops to fill a mason jar for my Pucker Up Valentine gift … pink and red candy corn for a “Corny” Valentine gift … and now, itty bitty mason jars filled with Mentos!

The cuteness of these eensy weensy mason jars is unrivaled!  They were on sale at Hobby Lobby  {<<–that’s the link to them} and they must have recognized a fellow mason jar junkie and just jumped right in my cart!  That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!  They come in under 3 inches … I just can’t handle the cute!!

Each jar was the absolute perfect size to fill with a single roll of Mentos – the colorful fruity ones, naturally!

All that was left was the tag, because no mason jar gift is finished without a tag!  So, I punched out some simple white card stock circles, got out my alphabet stamps and a pink ink pad and stamped We are Mentos to Be.  Yep, I am a total nerd and love a good cheesy phrase.

Then, true to all of my paper crafting projects, I “inked” the edges of the tag.  See the pink ring around the tags?  Just run your ink pad around the edge of the paper for a little color and character.  Finally, I punched a hole and tied the tags on with orange twine and pink/white bakers twine.
