Valentine's Day Crafting (All things $1.00)

Today I am joining my girls, 
Debbie & Shannon, 


As I looked back through my blog,
 I noticed  that for some reason I have done
more Valentine's Day crafts than for any other holiday.

Strange.

I guess I was never a big Valentine's Day
kind of girl, so I didn't have a whole lot in the way of decor.
Once I began blogging, I started adding to what little decor
I had for this holiday by way of crafting.

Anyway, my craft today is so simple, 
I'm almost embarrassed to share it!



I started with these items from the Dollar Tree:


I used some ribbon scraps that I had on hand 
along with some hot glue and that was that!

You can fill these as I did with flowers, votive candles, candy....go ahead...
let your imagination run wild.


Wouldn't one of these be cute filled with a few tea bags
and a couple of yummy chocolates
to give to a tea loving friend?
You know, just as a "little something" to let her know
you're thinking about her.  

Ok my sweets, that's my silly little craft for today.
I can't wait to see what fun & inspiring crafts
you have all come up with.

Have a wonderful day!

Cute craft, Gina! I never had a lot of Valentine decor before blogging either...now I am the banner queen! ;)

yeah.. cheap and very cute! I was joking on my facebook the other day that my friends would not believe that amount of money that I've saved since I left the manager position at the craft store. Who Knew? : ) No more senseless shopping for craft supplies.

Happy decorating!

Gina, I love this idea. I never remember to go to Dollar Tree and they have the best stuff! We are having a girlfriends luncheon on Feb. 13..maybe I'll whip up a little something to take to all of them. For that price, it's easy. :)
