For this year's Valentine's Day home decor, I decided to go with something small and meaningful - a love note pocket! It's a super cute and customizable mailbox for your love notes. Basically a handmade Valentine's Day card on steroids. :) And it lives on your fridge so it doesn't even take up extra room. And you can use up some of your scrap paper! So many wins on this one.
So yes, these Valentines are cheap and easy but they are also ADORABLE. I'm actually using these as favors at an upcoming baby shower. This a pack of 8 DIY notecards and kraft envelopes. I'll tell you just how easy they are to make.
I wrote this post as part of a paid campaign with Plaid Crafts, Michaels and Blueprint Social. The opinions in this post are my own.
Are you a list maker? If so, we're already BFFs. You should see my desk at work. SO many lists all over the place. I go through memo pads almost as fast as I make it through a bag of Lindt chocolate truffles. (Eh, maybe not quite as fast because I can take down some chocolate truffles). Now, this compulsion isn't as pervasive at home. I just have one list - a grocery list on the refrigerator. I do transfer this to digital before I go shopping but having it visible on the fridge reminds me to jot things down throughout the week. Michael's and Plaid Craft challenged me to use Spring Wood Surfaces in a project so I decided to spruce up my memo space on the fridge!
Every year, my mom makes gifts for the employees in my dad's office. They are gift baskets around a theme and always have handmade touches. This year, the theme was brownies so we made these little booklets with five basic brownie recipes. The gift basket will contain the ingredients needed to make one of the recipes.
It was really fun to make these! I'll just share a few of the designs.
The combo of black, white and brown is my jam. In fashion and home. I also love color and have some pretty bright colors in my apartment. But the classic neutral palette will always be a fave. When I found this vintage wicker tray at a thrift store, I immediately knew I would be adding black & white paint. I'll show you how I did it.
I helped plan a recent baby shower, which was fall-themed. I love the non-traditional colors and decor for a baby shower. I prepped little goody bags for guests to take home. I'm very happy with these bags because I tend to be too minimalist in a lot of my crafts. I am challenging myself to add more when I would usually stop.
