Small Notebooks Wrapped Up for Valentine’s Day

On the clearance aisles of office supply and craft stores, you’ll often find inexpensive notebooks. I found these tiny pink notebooks on a clearance aisle at Office Depot for .70.  I wrapped them with glassine kraft paper, ribbon, crepe paper flowers, crochet lace, and some cuts of old pink sweater (I used cuts of this same sweater in a former post).  It only took a few minutes to turn these inexpensive notebooks into lovely Valentine gifts!

“You Knock My Socks Off”- Recycled Sweater Valentines

I love all the cute boot socks available these days, especially the ones with sweet crochet trim around the edges. I decided to make some small Valentine’s Day cards with some tiny boot socks by recycling a soft, pink sweater.

dscf5843

I just added some NEW cards to Knox”s little Etsy shop.  I began the shop to raise money for  medical research back in 2011 and have kept it going in Knox’s memory, and in honor of all the beautiful children with Cockayne Syndrome around the world.

These cards are really unique, made with designer papers and accents. One set has 3 “Thank You” cards included, and the other set features 4 all-occasion cards. All the cards are blank inside, waiting for your personal message. They come with matching kraft envelopes, and will be shipped to you, along with a small information card on Cockayne Syndrome. dscf5836 dscf5837 dscf5839 dscf5840 dscf5849 dscf5851 dscf5854 dscf5846 dscf5857 dscf5856Please consider purchasing hand made greeting cards or original art this holiday season.

All proceeds are sent to medical research for Cockayne Syndrome. Thanks for stopping by!
