[Valentine] "Mint" to be mine

You can totally take this valentine idea to the bank! 
Well, not really.
Unless you want to give one to the teller.  That would be fun.  Random acts of valentine kindness.  Hmm.

These are so fun and super duper easy to make. Just print out the handy pre-made sheet of valentines onto kraft colored paper or cardstock. Cut each rectangle out and roll it around package of BreathSavers candy. You can secure the wrappers with tape or glue. I chose tape because it was super fast. Then just crimp in the ends like you would do with a roll of pennies.

Did you know that there are hardly any candies sold in rolls anymore? I was originally planning on using Lifesaver mints. But I couldn't find them packaged in rolls to save my life. haha. You can order them in rolls online, but I didn't want to wait. Luckily I found BreathSavers at my local grocer. And they worked perfectly!

Know what else? You can totally smell the mint through the packaging. And it smells divine!

You should make some.  And pair them with flowers.  That would be a good idea.

Here are some other valentine ideas you may have missed:
