Happy New Year!!

We've made a little Valentine Pocket for each of our stores to display. A perfect place to store your valentines.

Click here for instructions. Here is a little tip for you when you go to make the flourish design out of rhinestones. We used Fade-resistand Dye Ink by Memento (Lady Bug) to stamp a flourish design on the red paper. Now add the adhesive rhinestone in any color following the lines of the flourish. The red ink just about disappears - check the sample in the store : )

The crumpled flowers are all the rage now. You could even you text from an old book (and layer 6-10 hearts) or old valentine cards. Get creative and see what you come up with.

Kids will enjoy leaving notes for family members in this pocket or you could fill with silk flowers. Let us know how you plan to use yours. We'd love to see some pictures.
