Teacher Gifts & A Darling Doily Valentine

Wooo-eeee! It’s Day 3 of Love Week!

As promised, I have a quick and easy idea for a teacher gift that you can give for any holiday, really. Just change up the colors and theme and you can use it for anything! I’ve also included an idea for an easy doily valentine — I used mine to decorate the gift bag that I put the teacher gift in!

For the teacher gift I made these cute little personalized glass jars for Logan’s teachers. I found the jars themselves at Michaels – my go to craft stop since it’s the closest crafty supply store in my area. I grabbed a Sharpie Paint pen and some window decals and went to work… seriously, it couldn’t be any easier.

I went with window decals instead of stickers because they are REMOVABLE! What if his teachers don’t care for the super sweet pink and red hearts? I wouldn’t want them to be stuck with them…so the decals are perfect. And again – switch them out for any holiday or theme, you can find them in the stores (even the grocery) year round.

I drew a little heart and put the teacher’s name on the front, and stuck the decals on all sides of the jars.

Logan has two teachers for his class so I made two jars…

Now for the filling — a little cellophane and some Hershey Kisses, of course!

Aren’t they cute?

Now for the wrapping…I got some plain red kraft paper bags to put the jars in, but I wanted to dress them up on the outside, so I decided to make a Valentine for each teacher’s bag.

This is an easy way to make a Valentine using a paper doily (you know I love my doilies!)

I cut the sparkly scrapbook paper into a heart to fit inside the border of the doily, and use scrapbook sticky tape to stick them together. I then cut a small rectangle out of plain white cardstock and stamped it with my XOXO stamp…

…and wrote a little love note to Logan’s teachers. Kisses since the jars are filled with kisses… get it? πŸ™‚

I used my sticky dots to stick the cardstock to the hearts and the hearts to the bags… the sticky dots give it that great 3D effect.

Now for some over-the-top fabulousness — TISSUE!

Vavoom!

Two Hearts are better than One!

Like I said – pretty simple, and a great idea to use year round. Those Sharpie Paint pens are great – I see more projects in the future with those!

Hope you enjoyed this idea – tomorrow I will reveal my mantle. I didn’t go over the top, but it’s festive and required little effort, which I’m sure everyone can appreciate!

XOXO, D

New Design – A Tribute to Doilies

I’ve been severely slacking on my design efforts lately… there just hasn’t been any time! I’m getting back into it now though since I’m supposed to be staying on my butt as much as possible (pregnancy woes). After doing some catch up on my digital photo albums and making a few of my accounts look more pretty (Checkout my FB page!), I logged in to Spoonflower to see what the latest fabric design contest entails. Lo and behold it’s a Chinese Paper Cutting theme where you can only use red and white.

FUN!

I thought I would incorporate some Valentine love into mine, which turned out looking like a cute red paper doily. I love doilies – they are so romantic. My fondest memory of doilies is my mom sending me to school in 2nd grade with my Valentine “bag” that was for my classmates to put their Valentines in. Mine was a brown paper bag decorated with a red paper doily, and a cutout of a Victorian angel glued in the center of it. At the time I thought it looked too old – way over the heads of my fellow second graders. But when I look back on it, I think it was just perfect and it’s my go-to image that I picture in my head whenever people mention Valentine’s Day.

Here is a yardage shot of the fabric – I think it would be great for the lining on the inside of one of my tote bags, or maybe even for a scarf?

I’m ordering a swatch – I think it will make cute wrapping paper too!
