Here's a few projects I made for some of my sweethearts.
These are heart stamps and yes, I heart them!
Drink a couple bottles of wine with your sweetie, save the corks, grab some foam and your ready to go. (If you don't drink wine, make friends with someone who does, or look online for them... the corks, not the wine-drinking friends.)
The foam can be folded in half to start your heart, then just trim it up until it looks good. Glue it onto the end and you have a cute little gift for someone you heart.
Be sure to make one for yourself, so that you can stamp the heart on the paper wrapper. Hot glue the wrapper around the cork and your done!
Maybe your valentine isn't into stamping. Maybe he just wants to unwind? Well, get him to help you drink your wine and make him one of these to sit on his desk.
These are so fun to make and so cute, that I went a little crazy. Here's just a few.
The phrases on our Tiny Text stickers are perfect for Valentines! Another tip: change your quilting pins from bright yellow to pink-toned colors with a swipe of nail polish.
Don't go yet, I have one more idea and it may just be my favorite. These tiny little canvases are made from jewelry boxes. All you have to do is get your valentine to give you jewelery (I think all my ideas tie right back to that wine) and then you can make these to give to friends. They are adorable hung on a wall or standing on a shelf.
Simply paint the box, cut some paper to fit and punch a heart into it. Then use some Tiny Text stickers to add a little love.
