Earlier this week Jack and I sat down one afternoon and turned some cupcake wrappers I had in the cabinet into little Valentines. I plan to hang them on our Valentine tree, and I really love how they turned out.
This is my favorite of Jack's, sweet and simple.
Although I do have a soft spot for this deer which he cut from a vintage playing card too. ("Mom, this deer lost some of it's legs," he said.)
And this one he insisted was "just like yours!"
How about a few of mine?
I made a froofy bow with some old seam binding for this one.
I put some German paper roses on top of a tiny doily for this one.
This one is my FAVORITE, old velvet millinery flowers and leaves and glass glitter oh my!
I have been saving these birds since Heidi sent them to me many moons ago. They were perfect for this type of craft.
Oh my, the bee. The bee was the end of lovely crafting with Jack time. We had quite a row over the bee. LOL
Honestly, I could have made these all day.
The possibilities are totally endless. I just pulled out the boxes I keep all sorts of paper crafting odds and ends in, and we went to town. Stickers, labels, bows, flowers, hearts cut out of paper, glitter, wallpaper, doilies, playing cards, ribbons, buttons, pearls (I still have one idea kicking around that MUST.GET.OUT of my head), and so much more.
Ready to go dig out the cupcake wrappers yet?
The complete set of them will be up on Flickr, link over there on the right hand sidebar.
