    Getting Crafty for Valentines

    Well, I joined in on the Iron Craft this week! Don't know what it is? It's a weekly craft challenge that is full of fun and inspiration!

    This week, #5, the challenge was "Be Mine" to make a Valentine. So I headed to the Dollar Tree and Target Dollar Spot to get some supplies. I ended up finding some cute small mailboxes at Target and I used one of those for this craft. I then decoupaged some newspaper strips and shapes on. Did some painting with acrylic & nail polish (for a translucent effect). Finally I printed out some words on the computer and decoupaged them on as well. I think I need to still add some embellishments but I'm happy with how it turned out.

    See that side below the bubble wand needs something and I think I need to add a 3-d key onto the end.

    Next, here are Emma's nails that we painted for valentine's day. I snapped this shot on my phone this morning so the detail isn't the best. But we did a layer of red, a layer of iridecent sparkles and the white hearts. Too cute!

    I've bought all my supplies for making the candy cane heart pops next week, but I was unable to find a cheap supply of the 6 in rulers so we've switched Emma's Valentines to these cute and affodable bubbles by Care at Dollar Store Crafts.
    What are you making for Valentines Day?
    Happy Scrapping!
