Day #9 - Not Just for Valentine's...

So can you believe the 10 Days of Love are almost over? :( So sad. I wish I could keep up the daily blogging, but honestly it really doesn't fit in my schedule. It takes quite a commitment to daily blog. I commend those who are willing to make the effort to inspire on a daily basis. It's awesome of you! :) As for me... I will try to blog at least once a week and hopefully more, I would love to blog 2-3 times per week, but we'll see how it goes. HeeHeeHee Okay then, for today's Valentine project I wanted to create bows for my gifts, but I wanted them to be something they wouldn't just toss, but use over and over again. So I made these rosettes out of fabric I've had for a really long time. I didn't get a picture of the back but they have pin on the backs of them, this way not only do they look fabulous on top of your gifts, but they can later use them to pin to bags, backpacks, purses, beanies, scarfs, sweaters, headbands, even your blouse, anything you can stick a pin through! Here's a picture of what you'll need, (minus the pins, blah)... And here are the ones I created...
Fun Fun Fun and they're so super simple to make. I didn't take step by step pictures of how to make them... So Candice Carpenter has this crepe paper rosettes tutorial over on her blog and it's the same thing just use material instead. :)
Ok so tomorrow is the last day of the love party. HaHaHa Make sure you are here tomorrow if you want to be entered into the drawing for the Valentine themed kit. I will only leave comments opened for 24 hrs. I want to draw the winner by the next day so I can get it to them before Valentine's Day. So don't miss out. I'm going to try my best to post earlier tomorrow. Wish me luck!
Love ya Laters~
PS: This time the draw is only open to US Residents... So sorry to my international readers. :( The shipping is just outrageous.
