Whew…January 18th ALREADY!!! Less than a month to prepare for Valentine’s day, and for us crafters….that’s not much time! Especially since I’m still working on thank you cards from Christmas!! OY!!!
I paid a visit to my BFF Martha and she had some great ideas, and so did Better Homes and Gardens.
Here are some that struck my fancy…
I have never set a Valentine’s table, except our first year of marriage, but if I do I’ll use this idea scaled down a bit. So lovely!
Paper heart flowers…you could also write in qualities you admire in the receiver on the petals, and they could be finished off with cute chenille pipe cleaners, too. These are more for kids, but could be kicked up a notch for grown-ups!!
These little button surrounds are precious! Wish Sam would let me dress Emily up in them! They can be made from paper or felt!
The gift of living flowers wrapped in charming embellished paper bags! Cheer in a brown bag!!
And this I am definitely doing for my hubby!! Too much fun!! I’ll show you how it turns out!!
A different take on the “Love Coupons” A timeless idea!
I am also going to give this a try. It’s votive holders made with shaped and stiffened doilies!! Candlelight…so romantic!!
Love the doily envelope!
And how fun would it be to pick up a piece of chocolate and read a sweet thought from the gift giver!! This is a new fave, and I will do this with every box of candy I give to anyone in the future!! A “Things I love About You” box of candy!! Who wouldn’t love that??
Let’s get to creating some fun things and spreading some lovin’!! The good Lord knows we all have people we can bless with some extra lovin’!!
I’ll share some more “SWEET” ideas tomorrow!! Remember that showing someone you care doesn’t have to break the bank! These are all inexpensive and fun!!!
Love ya BUNCHES!!
