It’s no secret that I love a good kraft box and a table full of pretty scrapbook paper. With Valentine’s Day just a few days away I spent some time putting together something special for a few friends.
All valentine boxes should include chocolate and heart suckers right!!!! These mini bags are filled with lots of yummy surprises.
Currently I am obsessed with using lots of layers. Using paper, ribbons mini notes and of course washi tape.
Although Valentine’s Day is on Friday, I think we should celebrate everyday. A simple handwritten note or a quick text to tell a friend how special they are. We all need to feel a little extra loved.
This year I thought it would be fun to make a few gifts for friends that centered around the Valentines Day theme, but also create a gift that can be actually used all year round. I don’t know about you, I don’t mind seeing splashes of red or pink in my house all the time.
I love how simple this project is. Anyone can do it. All you need is paint, a paint brush, tape and wood spoons. If you want to seal the paint onto the spoon for longer lasting add a clear coat of polyurethane .
Now I think I need to make myself a set. So fun right!!??
Hello & Happy February! It’s Jessica here, and I am so excited for the opportunity to share some heart day inspiration here today. At our recent Valentine’s workshop, Amanda asked me to create mini love notes to stick in our popcorn treats. They turned out really cute in these hot pink cups from Shop Sweet LuLu, so I figured I would add a few extra layers and share a little DIY with you! These treats will pair perfectly with your favorite Romantic Comedy, so grab your favorite sweet, salty, or cheesy popcorn and start planning your Valentine’s movie night!
heart shaped doilies

bamboo skewers, cut in half cups pink ruffle crepe paper hot glue
I began by stamping the phrase “you make my heart pop” onto white paper and cutting it into thin strips. You could also use your computer and print out something with a similar small font on regular printing paper. Next I cut little heart shapes out of some of my favorite scrapbooking paper. To attach the message to each heart, I ran it through my sewing machine at a diagonal. For extra embellishment, you could add a piece of lace or glitter ribbon to the side of the message.
Once my hearts were pieced together, hot glued them to heart shaped doilies, sandwiching the skewer in the middle.
I added a dose of frilly goodness to the hot pink cups, by hot gluing some pink ruffle around the mid section of the cup. Ruffled crepe paper is my newest obsession. I’ve been putting it on everything lately!
Thanks Amanda so much for this sweet idea and for allowing me to share my take on the treats here today! xo.
