Valentine/ Beautiful Heart Card

Here's another idea for valentine. These were few of the cards I made for some special friends to remind of their love and kindness. Valentine was time to celebrate every kind of love and that's what I tried by passing these sweet cards.

Valentine box

Wanted to share what my daughter made for her valentine Box. First she wanted to make a dog with an open mouth to collect the valentine. So she wrapped the shoe box with brown paper. Then just a day before she had to take the box, she said she would like to make the unicorn instead. Oh well, we didn't have time and patience to wrap the box again with white paper, so we went with brown paper base. Though white paper would have looked great, this wasn't too bad, right?..;)

Classroom Valentine.

I have made the non-candy valentine, for the past few times for my kids to give it out to their classmates. I definitely prefer non-candy valentine. But this time my daughter wanted to give out chocolates. You can guess, she is a big chocolate lover...:) So I made these and I think these are cute - heart shaped chocolate to make the arrows.

Chevron Party

Few days back we had a sleepover party. While deciding on the theme I went back and forth with different themes and for the longest time couldn't decide what to do. Finally I went with this Chevron theme. It came together pretty easily and turned out to be colorful and pretty, just the way I like it..:)

Paper Ornaments

If you have been following my blog, you might have known how much I love working with paper. Before Christmas, we even did this craft at the Sunday school with the kids and they took these ornaments back home to decorate their tree..:)
 It is so inexpensive and fun way to decorate and you can create many different designs. Now that I am thinking you can make a bunch and make a vertical garland with it to make a backdrop. Maybe I should make one to let you know what I mean in one of the posts...:)

Easy Paper Medallion

These paper medallions are great for decorating and can even be used to top gifts.  I have been making these paper medallions for a long time, accordion folding the paper and gluing the edges together, just like I mention in  the tutorial here.

Paper Flower Backdrop

Finally, the paper flower backdrop is done! I have been wanting to make this forever it seems like. And the results are just awesome..:)

The lazy me made only few flowers at a time and then take a few days break, so took a while to get this done. But I am so glad that I am finally done.

Gingerbread House Decorating Playdate

We had a gingerbread decorating playdate this past weekend and the girls were so creative. Its always fun to decorate houses with friends. There was lot of chatting and giggling and also ofcourse eating lot of candies while decorating too. They were all high on sugar by the end. But I think they did get to burn little bit of it, since till the decorated house was getting dry, they played hide and seek and they did run quiet a bit.

 Above was one of the decorated houses.

To make the decorating easier and less messier, I pre-assembled the houses using Graham crackers, so that the kids can get straight to decorating.
