mini cards

I love mini cards. They're fast and easy to make plus they are typically simple in design -a style I definitely prefer. These are mini valentine cards from BHG. This year I'd love to spend a day making a whole stash of cards to use for a variety of events.

doodle stitching

I got this book at Christmas. I really like the style of the book and projects it features. It even inspired me to hand stitch around an applique for a tote bag I made over the holidays.

valentine dinner

I like the concept of this table setting - plus it's a great way to use patterned paper which I tend to collect and not use! While it was designed with a Valentine theme, I think you could easily take the elements and mix it up for a variety of events...birthday parties, dinner parties, etc.

Flower Centerpiece: Place glass votives in a tray and fill with a single flower. Cut the stem short enough so the flower just rests above the tray.

Candy Favors: Roll a piece of patterned paper into a cone and fill with candy.
