I enjoy reading the wonderful blog of Taryn, so it is really fabulous to be in her space!I’m Lindsay, from Southern Lovely. Over at my place you will find a variety of projects–sewing, painting, crafting, DIY’s. I will try anything, even if I fail miserably. :)
I love handmade Valentines. They make me happy. I love the thought & effort that goes into them. We make our own Valentine’s every year. I have bought them in the past, which totally works, but I enjoy that special time with my girls making them. That is probably why I like it the most, after all. :)Here is how you can make your own–Supplies needed:
Words printed out
Small bags (Celebrate It Treat Bags)
CandyThanks to Ni Hao Kai Lan, I found my saying. :)“You make my heart super happy”
Funny story with that. My oldest daughter came up to me one day and said, “mom, you make my heart super happy”. My heart melted, it was the cutest thing. I thought she had made it up. Then one day as the Kai Lan show was playing on TV, I heard that sentence. Then I knew. :)
It was still really sweet of my daughter to say that to me.
Okay, moving on. :)
Once you have printed off your saying from your computer, cut them out.
You will need to figure out the size of the top of your plastic bag, then fold the cardstock in half to create the top of your Valentine.
Then glue your saying to your cardstock
Hope your heart is super happy after you make this–
sorry, I just had to do it. :)
Thanks for having me here today!
