Mini Crepe Paper Flower Favors DIY

Mini Crepe Paper Flower Favors DIY
Jan 26 by Chiara Alberetti Milott I have to say, Valentine’s Day is one of my all-time favorite holidays. Something about all the pink and red makes me giddy. Here are some sweet little Valentine’s Day favors – made with wax paper, and secured with mini crepe paper flowers on a toothpick. And although I made them with Valentine’s Day in mind, they really could be used for any event, from a baby shower to a wedding. Materials needed: crepe paper, toothpicks, scissors, glue, wax paper, a hole punch (I found the smaller size works better with the toothpicks), and some green paper and white-ink pen for name tags. Step 1: Cut out 5 or 6 crepe paper petals, about 1/2-inch wide by 1-inch height, and follow Jordan’s great tutorial for crepe paper flowers here (steps 1-9 of her Basic Rose Instructions). Step 2: Tear off a 12-inch piece of wax paper. Step 3: Punch two holes, about 1 inch down, and 1 1/2 inches from each side. P.S. Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

Handmade Valentine’s Day Gift Idea ~ Chocolate Love Notes Oh you guys, I am so excited about this Valentine! Most likely due to the fact that I have a horrible track record when it comes to Valentine’s Day gifts for my husband. I thought this idea was a great way to not just say I love you, but share all the things that I love about him. I wrote down things that I never have thought to tell him I love. For instance I love the way he laughs when he is with his friends.

Fingerprints on the Fridge: Christmas topiary When I saw this photo over at BHG I knew I had to have it. No doubt, it had to be mine. I do love the colors but they wouldn’t go with much in my house at the moment, so I had to improvise. Fabric Valentine hearts garland I have a big aversion to heart-shaped jewelry, but I don't mind me some Valentine decorations! Using some pieces of stiffened fabric, I made these easy folded fabric hearts. Once the fabric is treated (see here for the how to), it folds beautifully and doesn't fray. Start by making a set of paper templates. I layered and cut four identical heart shapes, then progressively shaved more off the sides of each one.
