At one of my favorite blogs: Makin' Projects, Sarah hosted a Valentine's Day swap.
Each person was to make 14 hand-made Valentines to exchange. At the end of the swap you would receive 14 different Valentines made from people around the country.
This is the Valentine I contributed:
A bag sewn out of old book pages.
I was blown away by the Valentines that I received.
Here they are fresh out of the package.
Here they are close up:
This awesome banner is from Michaele. It is already on display. Love it.
This cutie is from Jane.
I love how she turned a mini tart into a picture holder.
Mikey sent this gilded beauty - made with real feathers.
I love this one - inside and out! Here is the outside.
(An awesome red and white heart ornament that is embellished with a red button.)
Inside the bag was this treasure. A hand-made necklace.
Shara made this stunner.
This how I received it.
This is what surprised me when I opened that little box. I didn't expect that!!!
I love the pink glitter.Thank You Shara.
Kim made this awesome vintage-inspired candy box.
Yes, the box did have candy in it!
Look at how she added these little 3-D details. Check out those envelopes.
A fabric heart made by Courtney.
Inside the envelope is a little card that says "Friend". So sweet.
I love this crocheted heart made by Sara. Awesome.
A miniature, hand-stamped note pad by Shannon.
This adorable elephant was made by Coleen.
My daughter loved this one.
A sweet valentine made of paper doilies.
Tiff made this great squirrel. I hope you can see all the stitches sewn on.
I love how he is holding a silver acorn. Very unique!
Sarah sent this lovely bird. I will cherish this one. He is already at home amongst my pottery bird collection - safely tucked away behind glass front doors. Love it!
