Under $10 on the 10th - A Valentine Gift

Under $10 on the 10th is a monthly challenge blog hop where we create something that costs under $10, relating to a theme, and hosted by Tammy @Patina and Paint, on the 10th of the month.  If you would like to join us, let me know! Visit the list of creative bloggers at the bottom of this post.

Here's an easy, inexpensive and useful Valentine gift for a friend that can be made for under $10!

Face Cloth Cupcake

The supplies are few: 
A plastic or ceramic ramekin ($1)
2 facecloths (red and white - or pink and white) ($2)
An artificial strawberry or cherry (or a peppermint or Hershey kiss)

Fold the two face cloths in an accordion fold 3-4 times and place in the ramekin, pulling up the center a bit:

Place the topping on the center and secure a ribbon around the ramekin with a glue dot or a dob of hot glue:

Here is one with a thinner ribbon:

OR, if they love chocolate:
