I'm still a rookie blogger. And with that comes the constant realization that there is so much to learn in the blog world. Like...
::Valentine posts begin early. Like, in January.
::And Feb.1 launches all the "love month" chatter.
I have a ways to go. You aren't going to see me throwing hearts on my walls or making LOVE banners to deck my windows with.
you will see me making lots of Valentine's. In all sorts of ways. For all sorts of people.
I made these little conversation heart-inspired goody bags for my Girl Scout troop.
(Yes, I'm a girl scout. Still a rookie in that department, too.)
My girls have a stack of patches they have earned over the past two months, and I wanted a cute way to present the patches to them. I came up with these...
This was way too simple, really. I know, Amber. I know. But trust me, they really are simple.
I cut out two sizes of hearts, and wrote messages on the smaller conversation hearts in red fabric paint. After stitching them onto a larger red heart, I sewed that red heart onto another red one, leaving the top open for stuffing with patches.
I hand-stitched a ribbon from front to back of the heart bag, making a cute little handle.
Oh, and for the name tag I punched a heart shape into a shipping tag and tied it around the handle.
These would be way cute with candies inside. Or a love letter. Or a small trinket.
Let love take over...
