Quick Valentine’s Day Ideas

Hey there!

I just wanted to share a couple of QUICK and EASY Valentine’s day ideas.

These were made before I was a “crafty blogger”, so I have photos, but they are not great photos.. and like any good crafter, I made these then gave them away, so I can’t take another picture!

These are some magnets that you can whip up really quick!! Especially now, that so many people have  e-cutting machines.
I purchased the wooden rectangles at Hobby Lobby, then painted them cream and distressed the edges a bit.
I then with E6000 glue, glued 2 magnets to the back of each one. I tied them up with a bow and gave them to some girls at church.
The font is 2P’s in a bucket, Fragile and the letters are cut from red vinyl.
Picture stolen from Traci’s blog, now I owe her some candy.
I’ve also got a couple of questions about my block stack. 
These are made using 2″x4″‘s. Traci’s husband had some wood left over from another project and cut them for us.  I then cut out the vinyl lettering.
They are just graduated sizes of wood, I think they are 8″, 6″ and 4″… again just painted with vinyl letters attached.
Traci wrote about them on her blog…we had a “crafternoon” and made some fun Valentine’s day stuff a year ago! You can see what we made here. Speaking of which, Valentines day is almost here, I think we need another crafternoon…. hint hint Traci *wink*.
There are a few more Valentine’s day crafts to come! Next I’ve got a couple of projects using vintage postcards!!
Speaking of Vintage postcards, Traci’s listed some SUPER cute Valentine’s day charms in her shop! 

 You should grab them before someone else does!
