Heart Valentine's - What are you doing?

I hope it is okay to post a question for everyone here. I miss the QOD we used to have.

I was just curious about what everyone else doing for Valentine's day, if anything. I haven't really made Valentine's for myself to give away. But I was thinking about doing that this year. I have a bunch of stamps to use, mostly from SNSS.

So my questions for you are

Are you making any cards/gifts for Valentine's Day?

If yes, what are you making?

Who do you give your Valentine's to? Just family? Maybe close friends?

I would love to hear from everyone and maybe we can share ideas. Always looking for ideas.

I just saw this fun question. I will probably help my son make valentines for his class and I will make some for my boys and hubby, but that is probably it.

Thanks for posting!!

I made the following boxes for my son's teachers:
Qbee's Quest: Heart Shaped Box Tutorial
You could use any stamps to decorate this box.

Then I made these Hershey's kiss hearts, because I had requests for them:

I usually make Valentine cards and treats for Becca's class and I send cards to my family. I haven't done anything yet, I have some ideas I want to try. I just need to have time to do it

Brenda, both of those projects are so cool. I might have to try that first one. I have a few people I can think of that may like them filled with some goodies.

Thanks for posting the links!

Thanks Korin and Giovana. I don't have any little ones to make valentine's with. I love all the valentine stuff out there and the fun stamp sets I've collected. Now I need some little ones to craft with. Maybe my sister will give me another niece who likes to stamp someday. I have a 15 yo niece right now and all she wants to do is chat with all her friends on her iPhone. LOL!

Hi Melissa! As to Valentines, well I will make one for my hubby and doing up little mailboxes for our three kids. I know my youngest will be having a V'day Party with the library story time group so making for his group as well. Probably should get started as it will be here before I know it

I love this question because I've been scouting about Pinterest trying to come up with ideas. So here's the thing - I want to do something for my granddaughers this year for Valentine's Day...you know, a little gifty type thing. There are 4 of them - ages range from 5 to 13. It has to be something easy to do (if made) and light (must be mailed - all live 250 miles away from us). Any suggestions other than making them cards?

Hi Zella, How about a treat holder with some candy? They are so easy to make: Stampin' Away the Day: Scor-Pal & Pink Paislee
If you wanted to include more than that, you could always add a little gift card, I know I have attached a $5 gift card to the inside as a special treat. Just an idea

I'm sending Valentines to family and friends who live out of state. I try to send for all holidays and birthdays as it's one way to stay in touch. I have 3 left to make. They are on my website and I have more ideas pinned on a Vday Pinterest board too.

I made Brenda's heart kiss holder for a couple friends and some teabag holders for a couple other friends.

Sounds like a plan Zella. I love this community. Such a great resource.
Only 14 more days until Valentine's Day. So I guess I should start on my projects. If anyone that hasn't already wants to share photos of what you end up making, I would love to see them.

That sounds like fun Karen. What a great way to share your hobby by having fun with some friends. And nothing says love better than glittery hearts.

I'm making some treat pouches for both of my daughters to share at school, and putting together a set of quick paper gifty ideas to share with a ladies group here in town!
