14 days of gifts…countdown to Valentine’s Day
January 8, 2013 by Missy
Time for a fun little Vday flashback…
Everybody needs a little XOXO for Valentine’s day!
I wanted to do a little countdown for V-day this year for my kids but I needed something to hold the little treats and love notes for each of them each day in February until Valentine’s day. When I saw these (from Target’s dollar bins)…
I knew they would be perfect! But I wanted to decorate them a bit to make them more festive so I went at it Alison style, with vinyl! You could use stickers instead if you don’t have access to a vinyl cutter. I put each kid’s initial on the front…
XOXO on the side…
and a heart on the other side.
Fill it with treats and you are ready to make someone very happy!
Need some ideas of what to put IN your cute little mailboxes? Angela and Heather over at the Creative Homemaker have some FUN, SIMPLE, and CREATIVE ideas like these bookmarks (for more of these ideas search her Valentine’s Day tab and scroll down a bit)
I also LOVE these simple creative ideas for fun LOVE day games !
Alison had a great countdown idea last year involving love notes in this love pillow…
I also used some vinyl to spice up this glass jar for my kid’s teacher.
Apply some vinyl XOXO
Fill with chocolate XOXO
And you are set!
Hope you are inspired to share some XOXO for L.O.V.E. Day!!!
