Remember last week when I talked about sending friends some Valentines? Well, my original goal was to send “Heart Attack” boxes, but, as I quickly realized, that would have meant cutting a LOT of paper hearts. As I said, I’m not much of a crafter, so when my hand started cramping around my 8th paper heart, I figured I’d need to modify the plans. I want to share more love this year, and one of the ways that I show love is through ridiculously cheesy, mildly embarrassing cards. Embarrassing for me more than the receiver. ; )
So instead of sending boxed heart attacks, I sent heart-attack-letters! I made these really cheesy cards and in each of them I wrote a special note in the middle of one big heart that I pasted on the inside of the card.
Proof that I attempted to craft. : )
Then, I put the card in a padded envelope, puckered the sides so I could have a bit of a ‘hole’ or opening, and stuffed the card with a bunch of the paper hearts, and some confetti I made from hole-punching the craft paper. : )
As you can see from Erica and Hannah’s pictures below, it makes for quite a mess. : )
Whoops! I hope it made them laugh though, and let them know how much they are loved. (Because I do, so much! And I’m so glad they’re in my life!)
And therein documents my attempt to craft. : )
(This also contributes to my 101 in 1001 project of mailing 50 letters. Four more off the list!)
