Valentine's Day toilet roll tube gift boxes

I love crafting with toilet rolls. For sweet little Valentine's Day gifts I took an idea which I used to make toilet roll Easter Bunnies and toilet roll Easter Chicks and made some little Valentine's Day bug gift boxes.

They are so easy to make, and even young children can help. Simply paint a toilet roll red (I used one whole roll and one cut in half). Then stick on some collage bits - scraps of tissue paper, coloured paper, lace and ribbon. The heart cut outs were left over from making our wedding invitations - six years ago!

Glue a heart shaped piece of red card to the bottom to make feet and a base. Then fill with sweets - chocolate hearts, or anything in red or pink paper or foil. Don't forget the googly eyes, and top with some shredded red paper to be the hair. This would be a great little gift if you were making them in large numbers for a whole class, and when the sweets have been eaten they can be used to store small treasures or pens.
