More Sweet DIY Valentine Projects

I knew I could count on our blog friend Holly from Live Each Moment to have some great Valentine's day projects and she didn't disappoint. Take a look. She has the cutest ideas:

Kiss Kiss... You just can't resist!

Okay, so this has become one of my favorite crafties of this year! I love it! I think it turned out sooooo cute! I cannot even believe that I made it.
I started with the KISS letters that I got from Hobby Lobby. They come in two packs for .99 cents a piece. I spray painted them red. I distressed the edges and added my embellishments.

Ribbon. The circles and rectangle words are just puffy stickers I got on a sheet from the Dollar Store a long time ago. Tooo cute!

I took the wire and wrapped it around a sharpie. Drilled holes in the base and just stuck a straight end into the base of the wood...

I love this so much... With the extra set of KISS letters I am going to make another one to sit on the one of the shelfves I have by my FAMILY frames!

More Valentine's Day love coming your way....

What a cute little box to invite people to give you "Love notes"

I started by spray painting the flag and the inside of the box with Red Spray Paint. Continuing with my black white and red theme for the day of Love, I chose this paper that had the amazing detail on it. The other papers in the pack had the same detail on them, but with white birds. I loved the silhouettes on the paper, but didn't like the placement of the birds after putting it on the box. So, instead I used the paper that didn't have the birds and used Vinyl birds I fell in love with and cut out a long time ago.

I put the birds on and took a good look and realized that it didn't look Valentine's Dayish at all! Then it hit me...

I added hearts...

Ribbon....... and more hearts...

This has to be my favorite side and part of the whole mailbox.
I took more of the patterned paper and cut along the outside of the "flourishing pattern" and put it on the box. So now it has a 3-dimensional pop out. Oh I love it!

Alright now it is here and ready to receive Love notes...

The Black white and red "LOVE" I got from Hobby Lobby.
My mailbox inspired my next project!!!


So, I was working on my mailbox when I got the idea to do kissing
"Love Birds" on wood blocks!

The birds are vinyl cutouts.
Heart is just paper

I love knotted ribbon on crafts. I love the look. It is so whimsical and cute to me.
Not like a bow which can be so young looking at times. Love Ribbons!

Sticker from the Dollar Store

My Mailbox inspired my LOVE BIRDS theme for this Valentine's Day.

The blocks are two separate blocks, but I just think it looks so much better together.

Thanks for sharing Holly! I love your creative ideas!S

Love the KISS! Cute idea.

I do not mind at all if you "borrow" the ideas. That is why I blog about them... To share the wealth.
I got the doves off of a program at work. It is clipart for our vinyl machine. If you would like I can send you the pattern. Just email me at hollyaitken@gmail.com.
Thank you for all your sweet comments... Puts a BIG smile on my face!
