Won't you be my Valentine?

The Christmas holiday is over and what a wonderful time we had with family and friends!  I wanted to keep ahead of the up coming Valentine's day events, so I decided to start my valentines!  I came across this idea when I went on a retreat last year with my SIL.  One of her dear friends was turning 50 and decided to host a retreat weekend down in Farmington.  One of the projects we decided to do was a shoebox exchange.  One of the ladies came equipt with this adorable little bag and taught us how to make it!  I wish I could remember her name, but as you look at it, maybe you can help me out!

Materials Used:

SU card stock: Pretty in Pink
SU paper punch
SU designer paper: Bella Rose
Spellbinders - Labels Eight
Cuttle Bug: Floral Fantasy embossing folder
Cricut - George and Basic Shapes
Clothes pin - Dollar store
Bag - Treat sacks

A handmade Christmas!

With things a little tight this year, a handmade Christmas was just the trick!  I needed something cute for all the teachers and kid care ladies!

Here are a few of the things I came up with!

This is an "Elf Boot."  I googled "elf boot template" and found it right here Valitas Fresh Folds blog.  The template fits on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper.  There's an easy step by step instruction sheet to go with it.

This is a ceramic tile that we had left over from a tile project! I used my Cricut (woodlands cartridge) and Spellbinders for this one.

I hope you enjoy and Thanks for stopping by!
