Here’s a twist on the tradition of making homemade valentines; make a Prescription of Love for your sweetheart. They are so sweet and personal. Write little messages of love and tuck them into capsules and package them like medicine. I called mine a Prescription for Happiness, but you could also call it a Prescription for Love or whatever floats your boat. I made these for my husband’s birthday a few years ago, and he just loved them. Here’s how to make them for your valentine.
How to Make a Valentine’s Day Prescription for Love
Materials Needed For Homemade Valentine Love Pills
origami paper or any other paper you like
empty gel capsules (found at health stores and some drug stores)
an old small jar (I used an old spice jar, but an old prescription bottle would be cute, too)
label sticker or tape
1. Cut origami paper into long, narrow strips that will fit inside the capsules. Write reasons why you love your sweetheart. Try to think of a variety, from the big and abstract to the quirky small things you love. Think funny. Think sexy. Think romantic. Think thoughtful.
2. Wrap each love message tightly around your wooden skewer. Carefully insert it into the gel capsule.
3. Type up a label for your pills. If you want a typewriter font, you can download a free one from dafont.com. I used their Rough Typewriter font. This is what I wrote on mine. Copy or change as you see fit.
PRESCRIPTION FOR HAPPINESS

DIRECTIONS: Take one pill every time you need a hug, a kiss or a cheer
