I am so honored and happy to have my sweet and talented friend Chloe from Boxwood Avenue today. It has been wonderful to get to know her through the past year and I always love what she has to share whether it be a recipe, a tutorial or more about her life on their ranch. I know you will enjoy the tutorial she has to share today too! Thanks so much Chloe!
Hello Zevy Joy friends!! I am so excited to be here today sharing a project with you! Annie and I have been friends since the beginning of our blogging days, and it’s incredible how much I feel as if I ‘know’ her simply from Instagram and blogging.
I admire Annie, as I am sure you do, and feel honored to be here today!
Valentine’s Day is next weekend, and I am sad that it’s come and gone so quickly! I am a big fan of the Hallmark holiday, and love decorating & crafting for it. Before my husband and I got married, we considered Valentine’s Day to be our anniversary, but this year will be the first year we celebrate it on it’s own (we got married last October). I usually make a special meal and dessert, and add extra special touches to the day (love notes, little gifts, etc…). I don’t want to share too much about this year’s plans, but I can tell you, it involves this gift-wrap!
One of my favorite ways to get creative with gift giving is the wrapping process! The Christmas version of this DIY is one of my favorites!! This simple garland adds a little extra love to the gift, and makes it that much more special!
I know that some people aren’t huge fans of Valentine’s Day because of the commercialization of it, but I think it’s important to remember that you really don’t have to spend a lot of money on a gift. I like to think of Valentine’s Day as an alarm clock of love – a little reminder to do something special for my honey!
Try making something yummy or thoughtful to give, then spend a little extra time making a card, and adding special touches to the gift-wrap (hint, hint!). Your time, effort, and thoughtfulness will show your Valentine that they are loved more than any gift could!
It’s been so nice getting to share my view on Valentine’s Day with you! I hope your day is very special, and I hope you enjoy making this project. Thank you for reading! I’d love to get to know you better; you can visit me here or here!
Step 1: Punch small hearts in different colored cardstock.
Step 2: Sew through the paper, leaving about 6 inches in between each heart.
Step 3: Wrap a gift with your favorite wrapping paper. I love kraft paper!
Step 4: Use tape to secure the garland around the gift in lieu of ribbon.
This garland would also be cute to use as Valentine décor!
