Next to Christmas and Halloween, Valentine is a favourite holiday for me (not really a holiday, is it - after all, you don't get the day off!). Never mind, as I was saying, I like it a lot and over the years have made a few fun Valentines to give using what I had on hand.
My favourite is this Botticelli chocolate box clock that I made. Easy to do - all you have to do is punch a hole in the centre of the top lid and insert a clock mechanism behind, add the clock hands in front and you're done. I scavanged the clock bits and pieces from an old digital clock I no longer use.
Cost - zero - as someone gave me the chocolates and the clock. Look around the house and see if you've got an unused clock squirreled away somewhere, a candy tin (cardboard also works) and make your own.
If you're anything like me, your chocolates may not get to the recipient. If not - just stick in a photo of your sweetie at the bottom of the candy box and wait for the compliments!
