Valentines Gifts

Valentines day is for more than just couples or those of us in love. Valentines day is a time to show all kinds of love. My and Tj's anniversary is on the 16th of February so we don't put a lot of importance on Valentines day. Instead this year, I chose to spend time making valentines for friends and family.

The big thing I made was what I call a Best Friend Journal. I made this for my long distance best friend as a way to showcase our best memories together and all the photos of the two of us that we had taken thus far in our friendship.

I made this book with a 4x6 photo album from Michael's. I customized the cover and all of the pages. I basically made it as a mini scrapbook with all of our memories (mostly from our high school years). I did leave about half of the book blank to include new memories. I slipped all the extra supplies I got for the project into the last page along with a note in an envelope explaining the project and how she is supposed to finish it. 


I also sent personalized heart-shaped Valentines Day cards that I also purchased at Michael's to my family. I like to add washi tape and stickers to my notes to make them cute and unique. There is nothing I love more than sending and getting mail.
