Hello, hello friends! Happy mid-week to you all! Today I have a sweet home decor project to share with you. A little Valentine decor I made for Therm O Web using their fabulous new Deco Foils.
Of course Valentine’s Day is all about the love. And what better way to show your love than with a great big heart. So for Valentine’s this year, I’ve made one of my favorite home decor projects… a big ol’ paper pillow. This time in the shape of a heart, done up in pretty pinks and red for the holiday.
Every good Valentine needs a little love note. I’ve attached mine in a glassine envelope, dressed up with doilies and die cuts, and tied up in some of my favorite trims.
The real star of the show to me, though, is the pretty love script sentiment, covered in red Deco Foil. It’s so easy to do just using your favorite dies and Therm O Web’s double-sided adhesive foam. I’ve got the how-to’s up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful day!

When my kiddos were still wee tiny, I really looked forward to this time of the year. Some years I would make handmade Valentine’s for them to pass out in class, but mostly, my kids liked to pick out the themed store-bought variety based on their current favorite passion, like Barbie and Disney Princesses, Pokemon, Knock Knock Jokes, and Star Wars. How I loved watching them select the perfect Valentine for each classmate. Helped them tape on that little piece of candy. Lent a hand in crafting the best shoebox mailbox in anticipation of all the fabulous cards they would soon receive.
These days, we don’t do much for Valentine’s, but I couldn’t let the day pass without putting together a few special treats for my sweets. After all, what’s Valentine’s Day without chocolate? And this recycled plastic packaging can hold a lot of it. Perfecto!
I added a large paper doily to the inside of the box and wrapped the outside with a strip of pretty paper. Made a fancy tag to dress it all up using embossing powder and stamps, scraps of paper, and lots of fabulous Sizzix dies. I was inspired by my sweet bloggy friend, Alex, to break out my old watercolor paints. And by Yvonne, who has taught us how to rock everything gold. Thank you, ladies, for pushing me out of my comfort zone!
I am in love with that love phrase. The little cupid, too. You can find out more about them, and my project, today on the Sizzix blog.
Thanks so much for stopping by, my friends! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. Anyone else planning on gluing themselves to the Olympics, like me?
