A Little Love

Oh My Valentines Day is around the corner.  I absolutely love Valentines Day. The day to celebrate being in love, being in love with a partner, being in love with a son or daughter, being in love with a friend or an aunt or uncle.  There is so much love to spread around. I love the idea of giving a small adorable token of the heart. I love seeing all the people walking down the street carrying flowers, balloons and hearts whether they be business men or construction workers or cheese mongers.

This year we are making stamps to then make our own Valentines and tags for Valentine gifts. 

We are using blocks of wood (2X4s cut into smaller pieces), some wonder foam pieces, scissors and glue. I cut the letters and some hearts from the wonder foam and glued them onto the wood blocks. 

Remember when printing everything is backwards so if you are writing words you may draw and cut them out in the right way but when you place them on the block check to see that the letters are backwards as well as the word is backwards.

Then it's time to stamp, stamp notecards, tags, boxes. 

You can get all kinds of shapes of paper punches from Michaels or other craft supply stores.

Happy Love!!!

  1. I love how you've preserved the handmade look but that you can make a lot of cards at one time. I'll be sharing this on The Crafty Crow soon :)
