Valentine’s Ideas – Christmas Leftovers & Ribbon Card

Hi Everyone 

Note – the Giveaway previously detailed here has now closed. The winner can be seen here.

Day 2 of our Valentine’s recap and more ideas to share today. 

I love the first one as it may mean I get to use up some of the Christmas Papers strewn all over my study before I get around to packing them up in March….

Christmas Leftovers into Valentine’s Treats

This post has a couple more pictures and details on how I created these Valentine’s Treats using leftover Christmas Paper. Many Holiday Collections have red and white prints – so check yours before you pack them away.

Woven Ribbon Heart Card

Find out how I created this card using a home-made woven ribbon heart. I explain the technique I used to hold the ribbon pieces together.

    I follow on FB. I shopped the after-Christmas sales and found some red and green paper ribbons. The paper is ruffled with a white thread. I figure I can use the red for Valentines day and the green will be for St. Patrick's Day. Your treat boxes are so bright and cheerful.

    I have done all 4 of your items. We were at Michael's today looking at Christmas markdowns. One of the items was a package of 4 items that you would use to decorate frosted cookies. I told my husband (he is the cook in the family) that if he sorted all the green things out of the sprinkles he could use them on Valentine's cookies and a great price! Then I see your post today using Christmas paper. It was so perfect…I made my husband read it.
