Valentines - 1st Draft
Back around Christmas time I made some vanilla sugar to use in some sort of undetermined gifty way. Well, when I found the coffee toffee recipe all thoughts of the vanilla sugar went out the window. I spent the holiday season completely obsessed with the coffee toffee.
Which I have decided is a really good thing because what would be a perfect thing to hand out on Valentine's Day? Homemade vanilla sugar, of course! It is soooo tasty and has so many possibilities! The paper in this photo is from the dollar section at Target and I just can't believe how perfect it is for this. I didn't have to cut it at all. I kind of like the way it is totally oversized for the little bags too. These are, first and foremost, valentines, you know, and that makes them seem more valentine-y to me. My graphic design obviously needs some work, but this first attempt was mostly just to see if it would work and figure out sizing. I'll let you know what else I come up with.
