Entries in valentine's (23)


last year's valentines

While we're still in the month of February, I thought I would post a photo of Avery's valentines from last year, since this blog wasn't up and running then.  The note cards are from Paper Source and I fashioned ribbon corners instead of using regular photo corners based on this tutorial.


avery's valentines

This year, Avery was old enough to make her own valentines.  We started our project a couple of weeks ago, inspired by this blog post.  Avery had a fun time scribbling on different shades of red and pink paper, then I cut out hearts using this Marvy craft punch, printed a little message and pasted some patterned wrapping paper on the back.  Each valentine went into a glassine envelope with some bits of beautiful hand-pulled candy from Papabubble in NY.  The last step was sealing each envelope with washi tape.

It was such a fun process!  Thanks to lovelydesign for your inspiration.


heart-shaped recycled crayons

I've been busy the last couple of weeks making things for Avery's upcoming birthday and Valentine's Day!  Here are some heart-shaped crayons that I made to pass out for Avery's second birthday.  I can't believe my baby is almost two!  Here is a link to the how-to.  I made different shapes for Christmas presents in December and will post a few photos of those in the near future.
