DIY February: Valentine Countdown

It is officially February! Welcome everyone from A Little Knick Knack's EBTKS link party, and if you haven't checked it out yet, head on over HERE to see all of this week's projects. As part of my "Happiness Project" this month I am making at least one craft a week, along with posting a tutorial on the blog. I am starting my month of crafting off right with a darling and ridiculously easy Valentine countdown, plus you can't go wrong with chocolate!
You will need:
A leftover cardboard box
Red paper
White paper
14 Dove chocolates (plus a bunch more for eating!)
Stamps or Stickers
Black pen
Glue stick
Start off with some cardboard from a leftover box, and cut it just smaller than a sheet of paper.

Tape the paper on your cardboard piece, it doesn't have to be perfect that's part of the DIY charm.

Use stamps, or stickers to title your countdown.

Next use a heart punch or another small punch to make 14 small hearts.

Use a glue stick to attach your hearts to your Dove chocolates, try not to eat too many of the chocolates while you work!
Attach the chocolates to your board, I wrote a secret message for my sweetheart to discover and ended it with an exclamation point.

Then number your chocolates so your sweetheart knows when to eat them.

Add a few extra hearts for cuteness.
And your all finished! Surprise your sweetheart with this and buy yourself a few days to get that present for Valentines. Go ahead, Get crafty!
