  1. Heart-Covered Waxed Paper How-To

    Hide

    Fold a piece of tissue paper in half three times, forming eight layers. Using a heart-shaped craft punch, cut out hearts. Cover the surface of an ironing board with paper towels; place a sheet of waxed paper on top. Arrange hearts on waxed paper, and cover with another sheet of waxed paper. Cover with more paper towels. Run an iron, set to medium heat, lightly over the layers to set.

    How to Secure a Hanging Christmas Ornament

    Hide

    Anyone with a Christmas tree should have this trick up her sleeve. Instead of hanging a fragile or antique ornament from a hook (far too easy for curious children or pets to knock loose), secure it with a length of 28-gauge wire. 

    Thread wire through hanging loop, wrap around a branch, and twist ends. Your ornament won't go anywhere. The best part is you can hang each decoration at exactly the height you desire.

    Valentine's Day Treat Bags

    Hide

    If you're looking for a last-minute Valentine's Day present, you can't go wrong with candy.

    For an easy-to-make gift, simply fill a cello bag three-quarters full with layers of jelly beans and hard candy. Top it off with a heart-shaped lollipop, stuck directly into the mixture, and tie the whole package together with a beautiful ribbon.
