VALENTINES AND VISITING TEACHING GIFTS

In the LDS Church Relief Society, we have the blessing of being able to visit fellow sisters each month to give a short lesson and fellowship them.







I made a few little Valentine cards for my Sisters









They are just layered scallops and flowers .













Then I used a little brad so the top swings away and I wrote a little note on the bottom scallop.











I'm going to make some cookies and stack them in a little bag and put these on top.











Bekah wanted something a little different and when I am given a challenge, I am way excited.












I came up with these little photo holders. Just a piece of 2x4 painted black with a piece of paper decoupaged onto it and some vinyl lettering.















Then I took some wire and bent it to make some little picture holders. drilled some little holes in the top of the block and put them in.






Stick a Valentine in one of them and there you go! Easy Peasy.

The ladies will love those! They are adorable. Looks like you found some great things on your hunt too. I would like to order a "KITCHEN" sign. I am wanting to go to Layton either next tuesday or Wednesday. I hope the weather cooperates. My car's not a fan of Sardine Canyon when it snows. Let me know what you need from me, and if you want me to mail you a check or how that works. THANKS!!

Those are so darn cute. Would you consider coming to YW and showing us how to make those? Maybe for mother's day or something? I told you that the syrup is addicting. The first time I made it I ate half of it with a spoon. Sorry. Mimi

Those photo holders are too cute; you are one crafty lady! You should do some video tutorials for those of us who are somewhat challenged!
