DIY VDAY Gift: Vanilla Sugar

For this year's VDay, I prepared flavored sugar for loved ones. You probably got everything you need at home  for this diy project - well, maybe except for the vanilla bean. :)

Vanilla Sugar

Things Needed:

1 vanilla pod (you can get this from the supermarket)
1 cup of sugar
1 clean bottle
1 strip of washi for the label

Preps:

1. Open your vanilla pod by slicing it down the center. Scrape off the beans.
2. Put 1 cup sugar in a bowl. Add the vanilla beans and pod.
3. Mix it.
4. Put the mixture inside the bottle.
5. Use washi tape to label it. You can even add simple notes.

You can also use lemon skin to flavor sugar. Just make sure you remove the lemon rind (white part) altogether so your sugar wouldn't be bitter.

I gave a bottle as a goodbye gift to my sister Germee who went back to Italy. The other ones will be gifted to my family and friends later. I'm already making another batch but this time, I'll shape my flavored sugar into hearts and cubes.

Happy VDay everyone!♡♡

PS This isn't just for Valentines. I'm sure this handmade gift would be perfect for birthdays and weddings too :)
