Homemade Valentines with Washi Tape

homemade valentines washi tape

I love sending and receiving snail mail. It is hard describe the happiness I feel when I open the door to find a card with a handwritten address, addressed to yours truly! We really have the coolest mail box if you ask me. It’s rather old fashion, but it is a slot through our front door. No mail box, or PO box., the mail is truly waiting for us in our entry way at the end of the day. Cool right?

Just like my Christmas thank you cards, this year’s Valentine notes too will be handmade with my favorite washi tape! I used the Cameo to cut out several heart shapes, but you could easily do this by hand. Then I layered on the washi tape in some lovey dovey colors.

Washi Tape Heart

It’s quite simple if you think about it. I changed up the patterns and order, so that each heart, just like those I love,  is unique.

Homemade Valentines

Just like I did with these Valentine treat bags, I used the Cameo sketch pens to do my writing for me. I think my favorite part is this awesome washi tape I found that says Made with Love….each card has a little strip on the back.

So do you hand make or buy your Valentines? I am looking forward to sharing the love on Thursday!

Love Valentine Bunting @astepinthejourney

After creating the JOY Book Page banner over Christmas I couldn’t wait for Valentines Day to get around, so I could run with the idea again! So, if you are thinking this project is looks familiar, you are right. The last banner was so simple and lovely…why not make another?

If you would like detailed instructions for how to create your own you can visit this post. However, you can look and see it’s pretty simple. I used dictionary pages again, but added doilies and washi tape this time around.

Heart Bunting

It’s final resting place is above a little Valentine vignette in the kitchen that includes this LOVE printable and a cupcake liner topiary from back in the early blogging days (please don’t judge the terrible photography, I hadn’t met my friend Nikon yet).

Have you created any projects lately with book pages? The possibilities are endless!
