Ahhhhhh Valentines day.... little hands stuffing Valentines into their classmates Valentine boxes or bags... good times- good times. I am lucky that my daughter indulges me by letting me make things for my two grand kids to take to school for their school parties. I came across a cute idea on a blog called "Back to Organic" ...she made a printable sleeve for rulers and had her kids give those out as Valentines. Caute! I just HAD to make some for my two little love bugs to pass out to their classmates. I pre-assembled the Valentines for my grand kids a head of time... I'll send the rulers home along with heart stickers and rhinestones so they can decorate them and have them ready for next weeks big festivities~The only thing I did different than the original idea was to add some duct tape to the area where the rulers slid through--- I felt this would add more stability in keeping the paper on the ruler for a longer period of time. Once the paper sleeve was added to each ruler, I added a little piece of tape to keep the sleeve centered. Lastly, I added a printed address label to the ruler itself with "Happy Valentines Day" and who it was from. I ended up making a total of sixty~
A few years ago, I found a super cute crochet pattern online for a teeny-tiny heart. These little crochet hearts measure in at one inch by one and one fourth inch, tiny! They whip up super fast.... in this bowl is 100 teeny-tiny hearts. I bought some glittered-colored bobby pins and hot glued a small piece of red felt to attach the bobby pins so that these crocheted hearts can be worn in your hair. I have no plans for these heart hair clips yet... but if I ever need them, boy am I ready!
