Love Notes for Valentine’s Day Bunting

Well I have a little secret that I’ve been keeping – and I am super excited to share the secret with you today!

I am the new sewing contributor for the fabulous blog Lil’ Luna! EEEK!

Lil\'Luna

I am so excited to work with Kristyn over the next year – I think she is so sweet and I just adore her. And her blog! It is so full of great projects and recipes, beautiful photos and creative ideas. I am so honored that she chose me!

Here’s how it all works – for the next year I’ll be sharing sewing projects over at Lil’ Luna – one a month! It doesn’t change anything here of course – you’ll just have another fun spot to come visit me! Yay!

Today is my first project at Lil’ Luna and I’m so excited. I’m sharing this sweet Love Note Valentine Bunting!

Love Note Valentines Day Bunting

So you can head over there for the full tutorial on how to make these pretty little fabric envelopes. But before you go – I have something here for you too!

I have a cute printable for you to fill your little envelopes! There are four cards on the sheet so you can write down different activities, little love notes, or ways you can show others a little love – it’s the perfect countdown for Valentine’s Day!

I also have a list of 14 Activities and Things you can do for others – to spread a little love before Valentine’s Day!

Valentines Day Countdown Ideas-01

  1. Make Handmade Valentine’s for Family Members
  2. Bake Valentine’s Treats
  3. Bring Treats to Neighbors
  4. Do a Nature Walk and try to find a heart. Maybe it will be a cloud, a rock, or a leaf. If you can’t find one, make one out of twigs!
  5. Make a Heart Mobile
  6. Leave a secret message telling someone else in the family one thing you love about them.
  7. Have a candlelight dinner (kids love these)
  8. Put on a heart-shaped meal. For example heart-shaped hamburgers, or pancakes or whatever!
  9. Play bingo with conversation hearts as the markers
  10. Put on a Valentine’s Scavenger Hunt. You can have little clues and hide Hershey Kisses around the house for the kids to find
  11. Make Valentine’s Gift for Teachers ( flowers, yummy treats, or jewelry are great ideas)
  12. Watch a Disney movie – Beauty and the Beast, Tangled, Little Mermaid – these are all about love!
  13. Have Valentine’s Smoothies. (Anything pink will work – strawberries, raspberries, etc.)
  14. Buy flowers to take to grandma, or a friend in the neighborhood, or the local nursing home.

Hopefully the list helps with activities – you can also fill the envelopes with love notes – sweet things you love about each member of the family. You can put treats in them too! Little candies, hot wheels, anything small should fit.

I hope you like them! And make sure you head over to Lil’ Luna for the Love Notes Bunting tutorial!
