Kids’ Valentine Boxes

Sunday, February 13th, 2011

My husband is so awesome. The orders for Valentine Boxes this year were: The Empire State Building, a vending machine, and a wedding cake. The wedding cake was easy because we had made one last year. But the other two seemed a bit more challenging. Luckily, my husband stepped in to help and created The Empire State Building:

Homemade Valentine Wreaths

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

I had two girls home sick from school yesterday, so we decided to make these little valentine wreaths for their rooms. I folded two paper plates in half and cut a heart out of the center of each one. Then we cut out several shapes and sizes of hearts from red and pink cardstock. We then glued the hearts to the paper plates, added some bling and some hanging ribbon on the back and VOILA!
