A little late...

I made a countdown (a few days late) for Valentine's Day. I saw the original idea on a TV show a few days ago...here is a link for step by step directions HERE.



Here is what you do:

cut your paper to a 6x6 square.



flip your paper over & place a long piece of DOUBLE stick tape on only one side.



stick the edges of the paper together to form a cylinder.



place another smaller piece of DOUBLE stick tape to the inside of one end of the cylinder. "pinch" the end closed.



fill your cylinder with treats or a cute message using the open end of your cylinder. place another small piece of tape on that end & pinch it closed in the opposite direction {like a sour cream container}.

decorate the outside with numbers, hearts, stickers...whatever you like. I decorated some clothes pins with paper & chipboard, strung it all up by some string. there you have a cute CHEAP little Valentine countdown.
