Wendy at Notes from a Quirky Kitchen has baked some amazing thing, including bacteria and virus cookies presented in Petri dishes. I thought they would make awesome valentines. You can order Petri dishes on Amazon and BarCoding.com will generate a bar code that you can cut and paste onto your document.
Cookie cutters aren’t just for cookies. We made these for a Valentine’s Day tea party, but how fun would it be to open up your lunch and see all the hearts?
Can you imagine seeing one of these in your mailbox? Sandra at SheKnows has the step-by-step tutorial for making a cake postcard that you can actually send through the mail.
Laura at A Beautiful Mess used Sculpey and a little gold paint to make these amazing looking marbled ring dishes. I think I just found a use for all the leftover Sculpey I have.

Bon Appetit’s Pomegranate Champagne Punch is a delicious and festive way to ring in the new year.

I whipped up these last minute gifts using small drawstring bags leftover from a party. Sublime Stitching and Urban Threads both have great alphabet patterns. Fill them with travel-size bath items or candy and you have an amazing gift. You could also monogram dishtowels or a plain scarf.
Hallmark.com has a fun way to transform pretzel sticks into a holiday treat–add a chocolate snowflake. These could also be used for a “Frozen” birthday party as well.
