Needle Case Valentines

DSCF1433

Needle cases are the perfect containers for small notes. Slip them in a purse or pocket, and surprise your Valentine with a tiny expression of love.

Available in craft stores and online, you can find needle cases in several styles and sizes. I ordered mine from Rita at Sova Enterprises.

I played with inks to see what they would do to the raw wood cases. The first one below was left raw, then I used a light brown, pastel pink, and red ink.

To keep this project quick and simple, I used decorative tapes and bits of trim for embellishment.

A tiny sentiment can be rolled up and pushed into the case. Be sure and leave a small bit of the note extended above the top of the case, so the recipient can remove it.

Lunchbox Love Notes

Did you know that Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday this year?

I used these handy little lined index cards and made some special love notes to send along in my Valentine’s lunchbox.  Each day of the week she will find a special handwritten note in her lunch, with Friday’s including a special treat along with it.

With some simple craft supplies, it took me all of 25 minutes to whip these cards out.  You can make your own love notes using whatever craft supplies you have on hand.

Can you tell I love Valentine’s Day?

Here’s my first new stamp of 2014.   Isn’t it cute?

 

I stamped the backs of the notes, too…

Here they are!  Lunchbox Love Notes for Monday thru Friday!

 

Hope you’ve had a great first week of 2014~

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!

Need Cards?

There are some bright and colorful Valentine cards in Knox’s shop right now…

There’s a set of 4  little owl Valentine cards, as well…

Please consider purchasing a set of cards from Cards for Cockayne Syndrome this Valentine’s Day, and feel free to share the link with anyone you know that loves unique cards made for a good cause.~ All proceeds from my shop are sent to help find a treatment for CS.

Up next:  My favorite fairy tale is Hans Christian Andersen’s “Little Tiny’, better known as “Thumbelina”.  I had so much fun making Thumbelina in her hot air balloon that I decided to try and create more of her world.  I hope to have something finished to share this week.  You can also click over and ‘like my FB page where I’ve been posting sketches of my ideas.

Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!
