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:

and the vending machine:

Our kids had so much fun creating these little masterpieces with him. And not to forget, the wedding cake:

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!

Craft: Valentine’s Day Rosette Frame

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

I hope you all had a verrrry Merry Christmas and a great New Year’s! Now on to Valentine’s Day, right? I made this fun frame with the inspiration and how-to from here and here. I bought the frame at the dollar store and the crepe paper for 50 cents. Then I removed the glass from the frame and cut some scrapbook paper to fit. I made my rosettes quite small. I double folded the crepe paper. Fun and festive!

Girls’ Valentine’s Day Party

So I let my daughters invite a few friends over for a Valentine’s Day breakfast party. So fun! Only I forgot to wash my white tablecloth and had to use a blue one. Hehe, I don’t think the girls really cared too much about that detail!  We played a little game after with candy hearts and a silly little story I wrote. Each person had to read what they came up with.

I made my husband a big heart pillow with a little heart pocket in the front for Valentine’s Day. I filled the pocket with little love notes out of muslin (I found the idea for the love notes from Cakies blog found here.)

My daughter had the idea to make a cake for her valentine box for her school class this year.  We ended up making a wedding cake and taped pictures of her school teacher and her teacher’s husband over some mega-blocks characters that we placed on top.  My husband actually used a caulking gun for the frosting.
