(i will be ecstatic when i own a DSLR and have a house with huge windows and LOTS of natural light..)
as you can see they are pretty clean and simple, perfect for a quick activity!
• embroidery floss (i also used some bakers twine, aka striped embroidery floss)
• 1" hearts (used my silhouette to have them pre-cute and ready to go!)
• scotch tape (to attatch the hearts to the string)
• washi tape
• scalloped scissors
i just punched a sharp pencil through the cardstock where i wanted to thread the string through:
i also had these scratch cards printed off, and the girls did these as well:
(these were done first, and they dried while making their other cards)
here's Jessica and i(and oh look-my infamous squinty eye smile!), she's actually my husband's cousin, and was the one that invited me! ps, she makes an AWESOME YW pres! i'm so happy she thought of me-i really had a blast hanging out with these girls last night!
isn't that card (above right) so creative?! i haven't seen someone make a friendship bracelet in forever, let alone make it a cute decoration for a card! and what a cute little envelope she made too!
B did okay.
everyone was so helpful and he got held lots :)
as for hanging hearts, i thought our place could use some more "Valentine-y-ness" so i used my silhouette to cut these out a week ago:
i think they're pretty fun and give a little "whimsical" feel to the area.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!
*are you doing anything awesome today?
the mr. surprised me last night with pb cups(yuuumm) and a giant card! he works today :( so most likely we'll just have a nice dinner late tonight.
*who is YOUR valentine?
i have 2: hubby and baby B
