Mini Valentines Gift Boxes: The Dollar Store at its finest!

Gotta love the Dollar Store! It’s hard not to when you can stock up on adorable little odds and ends! Holidays seem to be the Dollar Stores specialties! Their decorations and candy for each and every Holiday are always a hit!

This Valentines was no exception! I raided the aisles and came up with this adorable little Valentines gift for the neighborhood girls!

I’m tempted to go back and buy up all of these Favor Boxes! They are perfect for filling with goodies and decorating to fit any occasion! 12 for $1! It’s a no brainer!

Remember all the Ruffles I picked up for super dirt cheap! Well here it is in action!

Glue with your hot glue gun two rows of Ruffles!

Dollar Store goodies like Chocolate Hearts, Sugar Babies and Tiny little Lip Gloss make the cut are are thrown in!
How cute are these 5 packs of Lip Glosses? I could’n resist!

Lastly we tied on Tulle to finish them off!

For less then $1 each you can create an adorable little Valentine’s gift!
I love these little guys! Made me wish I was a kid again! Happy Valentine’s Day friends!

And Come check me out over on I never Grew up!!! I’m being featured as a “Monday Maven!” How fun is that!!!

    Super sweet and speaks to me on my struggle with stocking up supplies because then when you find something like the boxes you can whip up something like this with what you have on hand….

    I always wonder if I save too much stuff (and sometimes I do).

    I bought my ruffles in Long Beach CA from a store called "Fabric Barn." It's a wholesale store that is open to the public and I didn't pay more then 35 cents a yard! CRAZY huh!!!! Wish I lived closer…I stock up on my trips home.

    Which dollar store did you find these at? I looked at Dollar Tree and Dollar General and didn't see the boxes there.
