I love to make crafty things for holidays. For some reason this past year, I didn't make anything Christmasy. So, I feel like I have to kick it up a notch for Valentine's Day. So, here's the first thing I came up with:
Anyway, I have recently gone through all my scrap stuff and reorganized, so it was really easy to open my drawer of red things, black things and white and pick out what I needed. Here's a close up of each card:
Just simple and sweet. The first card has a J for my husband. The middle card looks like it has an envelope attached, but it's actually the bottom of a red paper bag. And the last tag has the top of the bag with a tag poking out listing all the things we need to remember to do (like love, snuggle, hug and kiss - all 'love' words), topped with a heart doily - those just scream old fashioned Valentine's to me. I remember always gluing one on red paper in elementary school, adding the to: and from: and taking it home to show mom and dad.
I made this last year and I think it's one of my favorite things ever!!! I'm a really 'letter sticker snob'. I love Thickers the most, and all the cardstock letter stickers, too. I wasn't really willing to give up a whole set of alphabets for this project, though. I was going through the Valentine stuff at WalMart and found these glittery letters and they were perfect. I used Thickers for the i, o and u - so they would stand out a bit more. I love how it turned out.
Thanks for looking!!
