I love Valentine’s Day. It is such a fun reminder of all those around us that we love and that love us! Not only do I enjoy making Valentines to give to others, but I enjoy decorating my home for the holiday as well. Today, I’m sharing this simple and fun “LOVE” Valentine Banner with you.

LOVE Valentine Banner Supplies:

Step 1. Using the paper trimmer, cut your Silver Pop Dot Paper into 3, 4″ x 12″ strips. Using one strip, place the larger Nesting Book Page die on your paper, and follow instructions for your die cutting machine to cut it out. Cut out 6 of these.

Step 2. Cut a 1 1/2″ x 12″ strip of Amethyst Gemstone paper with your paper trimmer. Use the die cutting machine to cut out 5 of the smaller Nesting Book Page die.

Step 3. Use your hole punch to punch holes in the corners of the cut out banner pieces.

Step 8. Use the baker’s twine to tie the banner pieces together. I used two strands. Alternate the larger silver letter pieces with the purple pieces in between, tying each one. Also, tie twine onto the ends, leaving twine to hang the banner with.

Step 9. Tie some additional ribbon onto the twine for embellishment.

Now you are ready to hang your cute and fun new Valentine banner up in your home. The shimmer on the Gemstone cardstock adds just the perfect amount of bling.

Easy Mason Jar Valentine Treat

Hey all, Adrianne here with you today to share an easy gift idea: Valentine treats in mason jars.  I just love giving gifts in jars.  It’s a great size, it’s on-trend, and it’s always well-received. The best part about it is that you can decorate the tops of mason jars in just the same way you might embellish any card or tag!  I am going to show you a simple embellishment today, but truly: the sky is the limit when you start looking at that round lid as your space to send your special message.

Valentine Treat Mason Jar 1

Step 1.  Emboss your vintage collection paper with the heart-themed pattern.  It’s difficult to see on the patterned Vintage Collection red/pink paper, but when you sand it in the next step, it’s perfect!  Choose a portion of the embossed design to use for your lid.  Trace the jar’s lid, or use a circle die to die-cut that area.

Step 2.  Using coordinating papers, die-cut a small ornate tag and heart shape.  Cut some extra tiny hearts to use for embellishements.  I used the Gemstones paper because I love the pearlescent finish, but you could easily use scraps from the Vintage Collection paper you started with.  This project takes very little paper – you could even raid your scraps!

Step 3.  Sand your embossed lid cover using the Sand-it Gadget.

Step 4.  Assemble your tag with some glue dots, and punch holes in the ends.  Fill your jar with candy, treats, or even a small gift.

Step 5.  Add a couple glue dots around the edges of your round lid cover to help adhere it to the ring of the jar.  You’ll be placing the jar’s lid on top of the jar as normal, and the paper is just an addition to the ring.  This will help keep the contents of your jar fresh if you’re adding anything edible or scented.

Step 6.  Add your embellishments!  A die-cut heart or two on top, adhered with a foam sticker, is a simple but pretty addition.  Add a few self-adhesive pearls for a minimalist look.  Tie on your gift tag with baker’s twine.

Valentine Treat Mason Jar 6

Your gift recipient will love the presentation of a treat within a paper valentine, and the jar is easily re-used.  They’ll think of you every time they use it!

Other ideas to fill the jar with are a few home-baked cookies, a batch of bath bombs or bath sea salts, or a small gift like jewelry or even a gift card.  But I have found you can never go wrong with chocolate!
