Get ready for a photo tutorial of the Valentines Bouquet you all loved. Get some valentine scrapbook paper, maybe some sheet music, some stripes if you want and you will need 18-20 gauge wire so you can glue both ends with hearts. Cut out 40 hearts and 40 backs to those hearts. Place hearts on either end of 12″ wire stem put scrapbook paper and sheet music back to back and sandwich in the wire. Use a 2″ punch for best results! See supplies below, very easy project.
Picking up where we left off..
Okay so you have your hearts on wires now so fold the bunch in half, close hand around gently..bend back the hearts and flip the music sheet to the back or whatever you like the sheet music can be on top( they are on wire so whatever you choose will be on the top…press them outward (that’s why we use wire 20 gauge) then when they are all out hold with a rather firm grip and spread them to make a bouquet, so they progressively go out. , wrap ribbon around the wire once you have determined your bouquet is where you like it..use hot glue and wrap ribbon around the stem to the top..seal with hot glue..then in the middle of the bouquet put hot glue and add a button or some other vintage castoff or an old jewel..and voila Give it to the one you love!!!! Please let me know how you did.

Hi everyone- It’s Madeline here to wish you a very happy Valentine’s day!!! Did you shoot out of bed this morning only to realize, “OMG it’s Valentine’s day and I didn’t get my hunnie a single thing!!” Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered! Why don’t you make a sweet card, little banner, touching love note.. something small and special that just says, I LOVE YOU. Don’t stop there!… Send sweet notes to your friends too… broadcast your gratefulness for LOVE on this LOVELY day!
Some ideas for you:
Download Sweet Valentine Ephemera: Print on card stock OR glossy photo paper. Punch out 1″ circles with your paper punch, space circles every 5″ or so, and hot glue circles back to back with a piece of bakery twine between. Swag this sweetness in the doorway and wait for the smiles.
Download Striped Hearts: Print on glossy paper and cut around the hearts. Glue back to back with ribbon between the hears and hang vertically. Make 3 or 4 and fill your doorway with striped hearts! LOVE!
Download V-DAY ephemera: Simple print these vintage valentines out and write a sweet poem on the other side. Doesn’t get better than a good ole fashion love note!

Take a look here at this wonderful wreath made from a copy of a print in Lucky Girl (I am really such a tease) … Circa is barely off the presses.
How’d I do it? I glued punched out hearts onto a embroidery hoop and topped it off with a bit of Glitter and a sweet PINK Bow.
Anyone want this… signed by me? Leave a comment with regards to your heart’s desire. You’ll automatically be entered in the raffle after you leave a comment. Winner announced this Friday morning (just in time to deliver this special treat by Valentine’s Day!)

Places on the blog to purchase our products..just a snapshot of life here at home..I hope it inspires you all to do great things and look at life a little differently. By the way you and your wonderful comments mean the world to Me and I’m so glad you like West Indies!!

Valentine’s Day may have been yesterday, but considering we had declared the entirety of February as the month to LOVE, you’ll still be getting a lot of it in these parts! Love yourself, Love those around you, Love what you do… Basically, Love, Love, Love! Once we see how awesome it feels, we’ll just want to LOVE all year round!
Below we have a handy little tool that will help you demonstrate how much you love those around you, and not just on Valentine’s Day. Download the PDF (By clicking on the image below), cut out & place little messages around as necessary!
Pop them in lunch boxes, post them on the bathroom mirror, tuck them in pockets… Find creative ways to tell your loved ones just how awesome they are.
pssst We so can’t take credit for the cuteness of this concept– we were inspired & borrowed it from the lovely Kind Over Matter site … and then adapted it for our February month of love, and of course, Valentine’s Day! Thanks, Kind Over Matter for the awesome inspiration! Check out their sweet site full of feel good ideas!!!
