Valentine inspiration...

How about some Valentine ideas today? The big day is coming up soon! I love to browse the internet to get ideas and thought I'd share some my favorites I found today. These are mostly from Better Homes and Gardens.

I love these little puffed heart lemon cookies in the clear bags, how cute would they be for teachers with a little thank you note for them? It's always nice to feel appreciated!

Next are these gorgeous little stitched pillows! I would love to make some of these! The toile fabric is perfect!




These are little votive candle jars filled with goodies and a cupcake wrapper tied on top. What a cute and inexpensive idea.
Pretty little tins with glass handles. Love 'em.
Yummy red velvet cakes sprinkled with powdered sugar. Put all those stencils to use!
Record deal...a fun way to dress up a package with a vintage love song and a photo in the center of the record.
Create little toppers with wire, beads and a heart punch.
A quick, easy card made with punches! Simple but effective at the same time.
How cute are these lemon rose cookies all tied up with licorice!
A clever card made with vellum - love those little pockets!
Don't leave me hangin...or "dropping you a line"...fun little card.
A mod Valentine card made with circles...
And lastly, I may have to try these cones with secret messages inside! Some little meringue cookies and chocolate seal the notes inside the cone. How clever!
