Happy Valentines! Since I can remember, my dad has made my family and I homemade Valentines out of construction paper and glue. I always thought they were the sweetest things. To keep his handmade Valentine tradition alive, I decided to follow in his footsteps this year. No letterpress or computer this time. I have a stash of old vintage paper, maps and music that I used for the heart confetti...thank you Martha Stewart for that fantastic punch. I had so much fun punching the hearts out that I ended up with way more than necessary, and I don't have the heart to throw them away.
We bought the glassine envelopes from Paper Presentation and I think they are perfect. I love how you can see the hearts through the envelope...almost like a snow globe. My fingers are crossed they make their way to everyone today!
