Valentine Projects

Valentine's Day is just a month away! Have you made Valentine's Day cards or little decor item for your sweetie, mom and children? I'll show you some of the projects I've been working on for the big holiday of hearts and love. Don't forget that I've been showing off some projects in the past couple weeks so there's more to see than this post....just keep scrolling down.

First up is this heart shaped plaque.

About six months I found this great unfinished wood heart at Dollar Tree. There was also a star and flower shape. I bought one of each. I wish I had purchased more because when I started making things with them and liked what I was creating, there were no more left! So grab things like this while you can! The 'love' sentiment was from A.C. Moore. I think they sell these on a regular basis in their wood department and they are already painted white so it made my project easier.

My next project is this 'Posted with Love' card.

These postage stamps are dimensional stickers from Martha Stewart. Aren't they sweet! I love the cupcake one. The icing is glittered and there's the cutest little heart shaped cherry on top!

This next project is a little mailbox that I use as a sort of Valentine's Day advent calendar. I put goodies and notes in it for my son from February 1st through the 14th.

I've been making these mailboxes for a couple years now. I might have blogged this last year, I'm not sure but I'll just show it off again! Each year Target sells these adorable little tin mailboxes. When I see them I grab a bunch because they sell out quick! They are so adorable, easy to work with and the lid is removable so you can stow goodies in it.
