Happy Galentine's Day All!
This weekend I went to my final February craft event. As always, a bunch of gals having fun and crafting, eating food, drinking tea and trading crafts. It can't get any better than this!
This time around, we were asked to make an advent. It consisted of a shoe box/picture box filled with seven Valentine themed items (seven because our event is 2/8 as day one and ending on the 2/14).
I found a lovely image in Design Space that fit the theme perfectly for Valentine's Day. It's a cookie and donuts with the sentiment, "Donut ever leave." How cute is that?! I used washi tape, brown card stock, ribbon and paper flowers to decorate it. Along with each item we had to box it, decorate the boxing and label each item for the day.
Item 2. Hand Made Tassel. This was a little more tricky for me because I did'n't really know what I wanted to make. I didn't want something that was too bulky, like yarn, so I used baker's twine to make this. I have some twin that had pink, red and white in it, which was perfect for Valentine's Day. I embellished it with some charms and a button. I boxed it up in this cute little top load envelope that ties at the back. I made a bow using my envelope punch. this paper I had purchased from Michael's a few years back and have almost used the whole pack.
In each box I added some chocolate, a jumbo ribbon embellished paper clip, a bejeweled safety pin and some red and heart shaped buttons. This will be a nice little treat for anyone to use as a decoration, a tag or in a craft.
As always, below I have listed some of the items I used in my crafts. You may find you like some of what I used and wish to find a great price. I hope that you have enjoyed this post. I know I had a ton of fun. Here are some pics from the event for you to enjoy!
