Heart Felt DIYs

Thursday, February 10, 2011

I'm back from my little "love break." Didn't really seem like I was gone, but thanks to more "snow/ice" in Dallas, I did get a lot accomplished. Oh, it also helps that the littles took major naps!

Valentine Bags for the Kiddos

Inspired by this:

paper bags
pipe cleaners (red and white)
hole punch
pencil sharpener (if needed)

Make heart out of red pip cleaner.
Write name of recipient on bag.
Place gifts/candy into bags. (We included bookmarks and handmade crayons in little pouches.)
 Fold top of bag over and punch holes at angle.
 Put sharpened pencil through holes.
 Add pipe cleaner heart.
 Add feathers (cut one pipe cleaner in half and wrap each one) to end of pencil.
 Voila! Instant sweet goodie bag!

For the Hubs:

fabric scraps
stamps & stamp pad

For Littles or Grown-ups!:

Inspired by this:

tree printed fabric or wrapping paper
toilet paper roll
double-sided tape

I love this idea, because there is so much you can stuff into a toilet paper roll - think jewelry, undies, love coupons... But for the kiddos, I'm stickin' with candy or Chuckie Cheese game coins.

What do you think? Will you try any of these?  Check back later for a super fun giveaway! You don't want to miss it. Promise! xo

  3. brooke- i LOVE the tp roll idea! so cute. i've heard you can keep those to roll your hair as well- never tried it but i've always wanted to. something about it being near poo(ha ha) scares me about putting it in my hair-

    i love you creative craft ideas-

  4. Love these ideas, Brooke! The goody bags are adorable. And the toilet paper roll "crackers" are such an amazing idea. Too cute!
