  1. Folded white card stock in half to make card.
  2. Drew a heart in pencil and painted with black craft paint.
  3. Let paint dry and used THIS fine tip chalkboard pen to write our message.
  4. Tied a little baker’s twine around the card for embellishment HERE.

She transformed her Christmas decorations HERE by adding a few pops of blush and pink…

boxwood clippings: pink and gold gift wrap for valentines day

We pulled a few gold sprigs and wrapping paper from our Christmas supplies and added it to our pink and white supplies. The fabric blush flower was a hair clip we found on clearance at Claire’s for .$50 and the gold heart is a pendant from an old necklace.

Ha! Now we can’t wait to start making plans for the month of looove!! How about you?
