My new friend, Lynne, was my partner in Dolly's From My Cherry Heart Valentine's Swap. Lynne should probably start her own blog. I love the title her daughter thought up - Things I Made in My Basement.
Since Lynne doesn't have a blog, I thought I'd share what I sent her today and share the delights she sent me tomorrow.
I started with some papier mache hearts I bought last year. I painted them and got out my MS glitter and glittered them all the way around! That was fun but messy! I have a ton of these hearts left so I'll have to make some more of these.
Next was a photo frame I used Mod Podge on. I painted it pink and found this cute paper at Michael's. I love the look of the sanded edges.
Then I made some clothes pins that I also Mod Podged with some scrapbook paper. I've had this paper since last year so I don't know if it's still available. Again, love that sanded edge look. I have got to make some of these to put in my kitchen.
What do you use to keep the contents of those open bags fresh?
This is a little banner I made with ......yes, you've guessed it...the beloved Cricut. Also pulled out a little more MS glitter to give it an extra sparkle.
Cute little frame from Michael's and the vintage valentine is one I found on the internet last year. I wish I knew who I should give credit to for it.
This was a papier mache box I painted and....can you guess....no not Cricut this time....I Mod Podged a doily and put a little scrapbook embellishment on it.
Here's some heart shaped cherry flavored candy in a sweet box.
These I didn't make but they were so cute. Don't you love those $1 bins at Michael's? So many adorable things. The book mark was from Barnes and Noble.
Is it okay to have a favorite? I hope so because I do! This looks even better in person. This started with some wood hearts that had a little edge or rim. I saw on someone's blog last year how they put pearls or beads in them and they looked so pretty. I bought the wooden hearts but never made that project.
I got to thinking about what I could make with them and came up with this. They were painted white, then glittered with MS pink. Then the beloved Cricut came out to cut out the letters. These I glittered with MS silver glitter. They were hot glued to the red striped ribbon.
Now I have to confess - I forgot to put it in the package I sent to Lynne. Do you think it was a Freudian slip? Well it's on its way now along with a couple other things I meant to include.
Here was everything all packaged up - well not really EVERYTHING -
Thanks to for all the kind comments and well wishes while I was sick. I still have a sore throat, but I'm doing better now.
Hope you enjoyed your visit today. I always enjoy having you over.
