Happy Valentines Day

There are many ways to let someone know that you love them, here at FlorrieMarie this is how we expressed ours.

Cheeky little grin

Tremendous spirit within

my joy every day. f


Be my valentine,

Never before have I loved

the way I love you. f


Our love is still true

You make me howl with laughter

In a big bear hug. m


Valentines paper challenge; The reveal

The moment of truth has arrived and the day of judgement here, ok very dramatic I know. I’ve had a slow week. Anyway, it’s been almost two weeks since we revealed our paper challenge and here are the resulting projects.

I though it would be fun to send lots of little love notes telling my valentine what he means to me. One of the papers reminded me of stamps, and that was the starting point for my inspiration.

I made  double sided little envelopes that were stitched around three sides and the top left open. Inside each one contains a little tag with my message written on it. There id embroidery floss threaded through the hole at the top, so they can be retrieved easily.

Love notes and their envelopes

Now, how to deliver them? Envelopes  go into the post box, so that is what I made with the other piece or paper. I figured out the template using scrap paper and then made it in the hear paper.

It has little arm that signals there is post to be collected

The loves notes will tumble out

As well as the notes, I think I’ll add a few more surprises inside for my love. Happy Valentines day. f.
