Transform a humdrum candy box with scrapbook paper and fill it with your sweetheart's favorite cookies and candies:
Create simple but charming table favors by tucking store-bought heart-shaped cookies into pretty cupcake liners and set at each place setting.

Attention to detail and a little extra effort will let those you love know just how much you care!
