I made these little love notes that will go with some treats for my husband’s lunchbox during the month of February. I used to make these little notes when my kids were younger with some special treats that will give them clues on what they’ll get for Valentine’s Day.
The materials and measurements for the box card and other supplies are indicated in the description box of my YouTube video.
It is that time of the year again when we’re all thinking about making cards and special treats for our loved ones for Valentine’s Day. I used to make a ton of Valentine’s projects when my kids were little to help them bring the treats to class but I also made some very special treats just for them ~ and my husband.
When my kids were still young, I decorate the house on February 1st but on the eve before Valentine’s Day, I really go all out! I wait until my kids are past asleep, and then I decorate the dining room with all sorts of stuff. I really love seeing the reaction on my children’s faces when they come down for breakfast and see all the little treats I laid out for them. Of course I do the same for my husband and include little treats in his lunch box.
Here’s a project that I used to make with my kids to bring to school. I really love Lawn Fawn and the sentiment is perfect for these little test tubes. If you have younger kids, please get them the plastic version so no one gets hurt on Valentine’s Day.
I hope you like this project. I will be posting more Valentine’s crafts in the next few days/weeks.
Have an amazing day!
I want to start the New Year by creating a cute and lovable Valentine’s card using www.jessicalynnoriginal.com’s Brentwood Owl. This is a digital stamp that is available for download at Jessica’s online store. What is versatile about digi-stamp is the fact that you can print out a couple of images and adjust the size for your paper-crafting project.
I colored Brentwood using my Copic markers. I wanted to use my warm grays because the whole design I had in mind will be pastel colors. I think it worked out really well.
8 ½ x 5 ½ card stock in soft gray
5 ½ x 4 ¼ Designer Series Paper (for the scallop)
White card stock – used for the Fence
Mint Green card stock – used for the grassy hill
Beige and pink card stock – used for the flowers
Pink glitter card stock – used for XOXO script
Lawn Fawn – XOXO Scripty Die
Mama Elephant All Prettied Up Die set
My Favorite Things Fence Die
My Favorite Things – Grassy Trio
Lala Land Love to Garden Die Set
3M Scotch Foam Adhesive
Tombow mono-multi liquid adhesive
Stampin Up – Glue Dots
I die-cut the fence and the grassy hills border using dies from My Favorite Things. I think both of these dies will be a staple for my card-making projects. The fence die leaves an impression on the die-cut and looks a little bit more realistic. I also love my newly acquired Mama Elephant, All Prettied Up die-set. I have used them quite a bit and it’s becoming my favorite die. I wanted Brentwood to look like he is popping out of the box – special delivery style!
I hope you all had a great Christmas holiday and New Year celebration as much as I did and I look forward to a great, bright, happy, healthy new 2016!
I decided to repurpose an old grapevine wreath. I gave it some major TLC by cleaning it first and spray-painting it white to make it look new again.
