I've been seeing all sorts of "love"ly Valentine's goodies all over the blogs that I read. I saw these Valentines at the Brown Paper Packages blog and felt inspired to make some too. I think this might actually e a first-I don't ever remember making my own Valentines before. I initially planned to use clothespins on my Valentines like was shown in the example, but I was going to mail mine and I knew that wouldn't fit into an envelope very well so I had to rethink things.
I did end up dividing my Valentines into 2 distinct sides and I also put Valentine's treats into small bags to attach to the cards (I already had these at home). I used a paper pack that I bought at Ross-it came with stickers and chipboard included-to make my cards. I am loving that Ross carries scrapbook supplies now-6 sheets of 12x12, one sheet of stickers, and one sheet of glitter chipboard stickers for $4! And of course Bailey's sweet little Valentine's day picture is on there too. I love that little smile! Here are a few of my finished Valentines:
