Guest Project — "Love Juice" Valentine’s Day Gift Idea {with free printable}!!

Hi, I’m Kalleen from At Second Street. 
I’m a mother of four who crafts to keep myself sane.
Valentines is one of my favorite holidays.  Not because I’m into all the lovey couple stuff. I have so many fond memories of making valentines boxes, delivering valentines, receiving gifts from cupid and the giant heart cookies my mom would make.
Since my kids can’t make boxes like I did, I’ve decided to help them make special valentines to give out to classmates. I was inspired to make Love Juice packets one day when my kids were begging me to have some of my Crystal Light.

There is something magical about mixing some up.
And they are delicious.
What I used:
  • a bottle of water
  • Hawaiian punch singles ($1 for a pack of 8 at Walmart)
  • a roll of heart wrapping paper (from targets $1 bins), scrapbook paper will work too.
  • avery file folder labels #48366
  • card stock for heart labels
  • ribbon
  • paper straws
  • tape
First remove water bottle label and replace with a 2″ strip of wrapping paper. I taped mine in place.
Print heart labels on card-stock.
You can find them HERE. Make sure to print in the landscape setting. I cut and matted (optional) my label. Then taped it to the middle, front of bottle with double sided tape.
Next I applied my Love Juice label to the mix pouches.
You can print my labels HERE
***update– the link is now fixed!
*They are formatted to only print on Avery file folder labels #48366.
I punched a hole in the top of the pouch and strung a ribbon through it.  I tied a knot around the neck of the bottle keeping it loose enough that I could slide a straw through as well.
That’s it, they are ready to be delivered.
Thanks so much for sharing your day with me Jen.
You are one of my favorite people in blogland.

 Thanks Kalleen!! 

That is absolutely adorable — just like everything you do.

  2. Thanks for the GREAT idea! My daughter and her friend made their own custom labels for these. We cut labels out of card stock and they decorated them with markers, etc. It was a great art project for them and they were super excited to give them to their classmates today. The part I liked best about it was the fact that it was still something “store-bought” (which is a requirement at their school, no homemade items) but we could still give it a “homemade feel”. Keep the great ideas coming! Thanks again!

  3. Planning to give these to my daughter’s teachers for Valentine’s Day. (The kiddos are getting something a little different). Made one tonight to demo; turned out absolutely adorable! My daughter has requested one for herself for Valentine’s Day too. :) I used the love juice label printable but just cut and taped it to the drink mix. Found a heart collage/background clip art for the bottle wrapping and snagged some $1 Valentine ribbon from Target. Thank you so much for sharing this idea!

  4. Love Love love the Love Juice!! Thanks for the printables! It made it so easy! Making these for my 3rd graders Valentine party!!

    Hi guys, thanks for all you kind comments. For those of you wondering where I got the straws, I bought them at the local baking supply store. It's the Orson GyGi store if you live in SLC. I've also seen them at various stores online.
