Little Valentines


I make each of my DGD's a box of little valentines to exchange at school and here's a sampling of some I made this year. They're 3x3 in size and each one includes a mini envelope done with the WRMK envelope punch board. I used white and red cardstock along with the SU! Sealed with Love stamp set and the SU! Love Notes framelit set. I rounded all the corners on these for a softer look.


I love all of the different dies and stamps that give me endless possibilities, and how cute that little love note looks tucked inside the mini envelope. The note slides down perfectly inside those tiny envelopes, but I pulled them up to take the pictures. Little hands will surely enjoy finding those little notes inside :)


Here's one pictured with it's envelope. The "to and from" label was done with a retired SU! stamp and coordinating punch. I made a total of 80 mini valentines for the grands and sent them early so they can begin filling them out. Once they're too old for exchanging valentines, I wonder what I'll do to amuse myself, because I make these little cards for them all year long. I make lots of A2 valentines to donate too, but for some reason, these little cards are way more fun for me to create :)

I'm sharing them with the Tuesday Throwdown #328 "Love Notes" challenge.

Thanks for spending a few minutes of your day here, I always appreciate the company! Have a great Wednesday!

Mini anything is always cuter Carol! These turned out fabulous and oh so cute! I bet they were thrilled with these cards to hand out. Much better having grammy make them then to buy them! And look at those special envies, too cute!!!! I'm sure once that time comes, you will find another organization to make cards for Carol. No doubt about that, you have such a giving heart my friend! Hugs, Brenda

These are adorable! Maybe you can find some neighborhood kids to "adopt" and make valentines for?!! Or find a teacher to make them for so she can pass them out to her students?
