These candy filled Champagne flutes are a really cute valentines gift idea and really easy to create.

I brought my plastic red champagne flutes in a pack of two from the 99p store. I also got my Swiggels Matlow Love Heart sweets here too.

All you need is…

2 plastic fancy champagne flutes
Swiggels Matlow Love Heart Sweeties
Paint or paint pens
Stick on gems
Cellophane heart bags from Hobbycraft
Red Ribbon
Red wire tie (comes with heart bags)
Selection of papers (any size, scraps will do)
Red sequins

Tools…
Small heart craft punch

So here’s how to make these cute love heart candy filled champagne flutes.

1: Use your paint or paint pens to decorate your champagne flutes. I used a red paint pen to add some pretty hearts. I painted my hearts in a way that gave the illusion that they were spiralling around the glass, descending in size.

2: Leave your flute to dry. Depending on what paint is used the time it will take will vary. Mine was fully dry within a few hours.

3: Add some sparkle to your champagne flute with some self adhesive gems. I used small black gems, placing them in the centre of each heart (except for the smallest hearts at the end of my spiral).

4: Place your champagne flute to one side and bring forward your papers and heart punch. Use the punch to punch out lots of little hearts.

5: Now along with some red sequins add some of your punched hearts into the bottom of the champagne flute. Now add some love heart sweeties followed by more hearts and sequins. Repeat in till the flute is full.Tip… Make sure some of your heart sweets are facing towards the glass so the words on the heart can be seen, adding to the effect.

6: Now carefully pop your champagne flute into the cellophane bag and crunch it in the middle, using your wire tie to secure. Now cover the plastic wire tie with the pretty red ribbon.

Now give the champagne flute to someone special .

Remember the bag acts as a pretty cover for your champagne flute, but doesn’t seal the flute and its contents shut. If sending this to a loved one then cover in pretty tissue paper and box in a bottle gift box before sending.
