Valentine’s Day Wrapping Paper – Click to Purchase!

Did you know that not only can you get your Valentine’s Day cards from Zazzle, but you can also find the perfect gift for that hard-to-buy-for someone?

I wanted to share a few ideas that I think are great for Valentine’s Day, or for any other special occasion — Birthday, Thank You, Mother’s Day, etc.

 

These are all customize-able in some manner, which makes them so much more thoughtful!

I love to write and sketch and doodle all the time, so one of my favorite things in the world is a great notebook. I have QUITE a collection! Since I love them so much, I like to share my love with others as well, so a customized notebook and a great pen or pencil, or a set of coloring pencils, makes a sweet gift.

I fell in love with the image on this one – the colors spoke to me! Gifts with Love from Zazzle

The Zazzle notebooks are great because you can customize them — you can put a name, initials, a subject, a monogram…whatever you want on them. Gifts with Love from Zazzle

You can even create your own from scratch using your own pictures. SUCH a great GIFT!Gifts with Love from Zazzle

 

Gifts with Love from ZazzleDo you have a dog lover in your life? I have a collection called Lab Lover, because, well let’s face it, I love my Lab. This is Jaeger, my 8 year old, blind as a bat, Chocolate Labrador Retriever. He’s my first baby, he’s huge and thinks he is the king of this castle, and if you have a dog or you have friends with dogs, you know all about the love between a gal and her pup!

If you know a Lab Lover, this mug of cuteness makes a great gift! Gifts with Love from Zazzle

I like BIG mugs because I drink a LOT of coffee — and I love the two-toned look on the handle and the inside of the mug! Gifts with Love from Zazzle

You can find a whole collection of Dog Mugs on Zazzle, and customize them for the dog lover in your life!

Okay, I am saving the best for last. Ready?

WHAT IF you could customize your own chocolate bar? And I don’t mean the wrapping on the outside of the yucky chocolate bar…. no, I’m talking about customizing the ACTUAL CHOCOLATE BAR.Gifts with Love from Zazzle

This is my new go-to gift idea, people. Meet Chocomize — the Zazzle seller that will create a special chocolate bar with the ingredients of your choice. I mean, I could literally do a whole blog post just about THIS!Gifts with Love from Zazzle

You're A-Maze-Ing Valentine by Stickelberry

Valentine, You’re A-MAZE-Ing!

How about an easy, no-candy, no-fuss Valentine for your child’s class? I have you covered my friends!A-MAZE-Ing Valentine

With very little effort, you can aMAZE your child and all of his buddies and give them something they all love — a puzzle and a pencil. I mean, the little things really get them excited at this time in their lives…. although, I tend to get excited about pencils, too. :o)

A-MAZE-Ing Valentine

I have to say, creating a maze wasn’t as easy as I expected it to be – it took way longer than I thought it would! But it was super fun making it. (<—- Geek.)

A-MAZE-Ing Valentine

I’ve made it easy this time — instead of fighting with your printer and paying for new ink cartridges (really, my printer is my nemesis), you can order these babies and have them sent to you!

A-MAZE-Ing Valentine

Then all you’ll need is a hole punch and a few minutes of time — you can even enlist your little guy or gal to help punch holes or insert the pencils. So easy!

A-MAZE-Ing Valentine

They are double sided — the side with the maze has a matte finish, while the “Happy Valentine’s Day” side is glossy like a postcard – in fact that is exactly what they are, and they are nice and sturdy.

Quick & Easy Valentine Garland!

I felt bad that it was already the 6th of February and I hadn’t done a thing about Valentine’s Day. It’s another one of my favorites because it celebrates love and kindness, and I’m a hopeless romantic. I also just really love hearts (girly girl!).

Easy Heart Garland

I remembered I had made a garland last year, and had even pinned a picture of it (pre-blog), so I went in search of my already made mantle decor. I found it in amongst my ribbons and thought what a great post it would make because it is so so easy to put together. Even those of you that don’t have a crafty bone in your body can do this one – and it really only takes 10 MINUTES.

Unfinished Mantle

I took some pictures and made a little tutorial to share the love… I haven’t finished my mantle yet, so don’t judge! I’ll try to get some pictures of the finished love-fest up next week. :o)

Quick & Easy 10 Minute Valentine Heart Garland Tutorial

Supplies:

Supplies

Supplies

  •  Scrapbook Paper — whatever strikes your fancy! You could even get the sparkly kind if you’refeeling fabulous
  • Twine — I used red and white, but you can use whatever you want! I got my ginormous spool from The Shipping Guru on Etsy, but you can find it everywhere in the stores now
  • Heart Punch — Mine is a 2″ Heart Punch from Michaels. If you don’t have one, or don’t have time to get one, print some hearts out on paper and cut them out!
  • Regular Hole Punch

 

 

Step 1: Punch Your Heart(s) Out!

Punch It!

Punch It!

Punch as many as you need – my garland is about 6 feet long and has 21 Hearts on it. When you’re all done punching you have some great scraps left over with the heart silhouette that can be cut into squares and used on Valentine’s Day cards or other decor for the house!

Punch Your Heart(s) Out!

Punch Your Heart(s) Out and use your scraps for something else!

Step 2: Punch Your Holes!

Don’t worry too much about placement, just aim for the top of the heart and in the center of each bump.

Step 3: Cut Twine & Thread!

Thread the twine through the holes in your hearts

Thread the twine through the hole in your heart

I inserted the thread on the front of the hearts, went around the back and came back through the front. You can do it the opposite way as well, just make sure you do them all the same or your garland will look and hang a little funky.

Step 4: REPEAT!

Garland Complete!

Garland Complete!

Nothing like a super quick & easy DIY craft project. You can even enlist the kiddos to help or do it all themselves – you don’t even need scissors!

Have fun and send me your pictures if you make one!
XOXO
