VALENTINE’S DAY CANDY FILLED MASON JAR

Do you need a quick and inexpensive Valentine’s Day gift for your sweetie?  No worries, I have you covered with this super easy and snazzy little project.  All you need is a mason jar- any size, ribbon or twine, some stickers – I even offer stickers in my Etsy craft shop here – GOLD GLITTER STICKERS, and some candy.  Any candy is fine!

Just add your stickers (or you can always cut your own in vinyl too) to the front of your mason jar and you can add a sticker on the lid too, fill with candy, and tie some ribbon or twine on the front.  All done!  So fast and easy.  Scroll down for more Valentine’s Day projects!

Valentine’s Day Mini Cards

VALENTINE MINI HEART CARDS

Last week I featured these cards, along with some other easy Valentine’s Day craft projects, and today I am sharing how to make them.

If you missed last week’s easy and quick Valentine’s Day projects,  which included these adorable butterfly Smarties, you can see all the projects – HERE

Today’s project for the Valentine cards are perfect for making with the kids for a classroom card exchange since they are mini size and will fit in the kid’s card boxes.  They are also fun to decorate with embellishments and stickers or stamp Valentine sentiments on the mini cards.

All that is needed for your supplies is cardstock paper in your choice of colors, red and pink of course for Valentine’s Day, a die cutting machine (Sizzix Big Shot or the Cricut Cuddlebug are the two I use) and the metal die for cutting these designs is We R Memory Keepers Quickutz Mini Valentine Cookie Cutter Die available – HERE

The set comes as two dies and the mini rectangular square die can be cut in white cardstock or light pink for your card inserts.

First cut all your cards and envelopes and decorated your cards, you could also purchase store bought mini Valentine’s cards and slip them inside, if you don’t want to hand make your cards.

Next you will want to cut all your heart envelopes and then you are ready to assemble.

Once your mini cards are placed in the middle of your cut envelopes, simply fold the two hearts together in the center (the die even perforates your fold lines for you) and lock your hearts together with the pre-cut slits.

Next you can decorate your outside envelopes with even more and bigger hearts layered over your smaller hearts and cut down the middle for opening, like this –

These can also be placed on top of Valentine gift boxes –

So there you have it, easy Valentine cards to make with the kids.

This week I added lots of new Easter and spring pinwheels and I am running a big 50% OFF SALE in my Pinwheel Pretties Etsy shop –

Party Decorating Ideas

A New Year & New Party Inspiration!

 Christmas has been packed away and the kids are back in school.  It’s a new year and it’s time for party planning for 2018, organizing the home, and crafting new projects to keep you busy during the cold weather hibernation and to keep the winter blues away.  Today, I’m back to sharing some amazing party setups, like the one above- and by the way- all fans are on SALE in my party shop, The Party Fetti ShopHERE.

Time to get you thinking about birthdays in 2018 (yep, its a good idea to start planning now) – even if those birthdays are months away.

This January, I will help motivate you to organize several areas of your home and share some diy craft tutorials like this one –

Yay! Who could not love making a little vintage thrift store figure into a fabulous party prop. This would look great on the party table at a little girl’s birthday or in a girl’s bedroom.  There is not much to this crafting project –  grab your hot glue gun and embellish your vintage figurine with a paper made mini party hat and pinwheel, add some fringe crepe paper, a ribbon bow, and top it off with a flower and pom pom.  So adorable! I picked up several different vintage figurines at my local thrift store and I can’t wait to start decorating them to sell as room decor and party props in my Etsy shops.

Since all hanging fans are on sale in my shop right now – I thought I would inspire you with several party table backdrops created with fans.  They are the easiest way to decorate at a party and make a big statement.

A mix of pinks and gold would be perfect for this coming Valentine’s Day celebration.

Greens and gold for Saint Patrick’s Day and how about a whole bar cart set up of treats too.

Paper fans can also be used to decorate your fireplace mantel for every holiday- even St. Patrick’s Day.

How about flower themed decor for a celebration in spring like a first communion, a baptism, baby shower, bridal shower or your Easter brunch.
