These are just the cutest and simplest gifts. I found this idea on the Family Fun site.

You start with a 4×7 piece of cardstock. I chose Real Red and Pretty in Pink, but this could easily be customized to any color or designer paper. I scored it at 2″, 2 5/8″, 5″ and 5 5/8″. I put a big piece of sticky tape on each of the end flaps.

Since Reese’s mini peanut butter cups don’t come in silver, I cut out circles from aluminum foil. This was by far the most tedious part of the project. Aluminum foil, the non-heavy duty kind, tears really easily. I carefully punched a small hole in as far as the punch would allow and pulled the yarn through the hole. (I used yarn instead of string only because that is what I had.)

I put a small knot toward the top of the yarn and taped the “headphones” to the back of the candy heart box. Then I simply taped down the flaps on the back. The iPod screen and dial are printed from the template supplied on the Family Fun site. Since it was in a PDF and I was being lazy (didn’t want to replicate it in Word to get more than one set on a page), I printed it on computer paper only. They were cut out and taped on.

A very quick and simple project — and cheap too! I got my candy hearts 4/$1. Can’t beat that!

Thanks for stopping by!
