Valentine Lovelies

A lot of lovely things made up our Valentine’s Day this year.

The Valentine’s I put together to send family back home.

Cupcakes and cake truffles that I made.IMG_3256IMG_3247Untitled-12IMG_3261I LOVE Pinterest and I am guilty of having a board for just about every holiday. ūüėČ These are a few great Valentine ideas that I found there and made my own….

A squeeze it and Hershey’s Kisses – “A squeeze and kisses!!”

¬†I liked this one especially¬†since I couldn’t be there to give out real ones.¬†IMG_3258These were fun to¬†put together¬†for my mom and little sister. I picked up a couple of pairs of cozy Valentine socks at Target then packaged them up.IMG_3268I made a special Valentine’s breakfast for the three of us. Strawberry smoothies, toast, strawberries and sausage stuffed heart shaped pancakes.IMG_3284Untitled-13I ‚ô• YOU toast!IMG_3290Lovey chose race car Valentines. He picked a specific car for each one of his Valentines and signed his own name like such a big boy.dfedMister Mister and I gave Lovey froggy¬†Valentine goodies. They reminded us of right after he was born,¬†when he¬†had the little¬†froggy legs that newborns do.Untitled-14He’s still our sweet, little froggy.

We Love You This Much

As soon as I saw the idea for this card,

 I knew right away Lovey and I were going to make one.

I love and miss my Mama and Lovey his Grammy.

So it was only fitting to make our We Love You This Much card for her.

What we used:

*Tissue paper

*Cling Wrap

*An iron

*A pen

*Scissors

*Alphabet stickers

*Craft foam

*Printer paper

*Double sided tape

 

How we made it:

* I used my favorite card making technique with pretty bird tissue paper that I transferred to a white piece of paper.

Then I traced my hands and cut them out.

* I traced Lovey’s¬†hands¬†on the green craft foam, cut them out and taped them to the inside of¬†the cut outs of my hands.

*I cut a heart out of the pink craft foam and taped to the front hand in the center then used the alphabet stickers to finish writing WE LOVE(♥) YOU.

* I cut two strips of white paper and folded them accordion style and attached the alphabet stickers saying THIS MUCH. Then I attached a hand to each end so that they would both be left-handed.

When it’s folded up it looks like one hand that says¬†WE LOVE YOU, then¬†when she opens it, it’s a pop up card that says THIS MUCH!

¬†Which represents Lovey’s and my hands open wide for a hug!¬†

 I think this photo says it all! ♥

WE LOVE YOU THIS MUCH!
