I think I've run out of red things in my house. Luckily, Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so that should last me a month of REDnesdays! I've always loved Valentine's Day. I loved picking out the perfect valentine for everyone in my class, especially the cute boys! We would all have a little "mailbox" on our desk, and we'd each get up and pass out our cards. Did you do that too?
I love making valentine crafts, and I'm pretty happy with how this shadowbox turned out.
It started with a little heart-shaped box from Michaels, and a twirly glittery heart decoration, also from Michaels. I took the lid off the box, painted the box red, and added scrapbook paper to the inside. I took the glittery hearts apart...
and glued the bigger glitter heart to the rim of the box. I printed out a copy of an old valentine that I had, added a little picket fence and some flowers and lots of glitter glue!
And I still have the lid from the box and two glitter hearts to make something else.
Some old valentines on a wire picture holder that I found at Goodwill. It had a really ugly design on the base, so I just painted it red.
And finally, two valentine cups from Michaels. Love the heart-shaped handles! I'm working on another project that I'll share next week for REDnesday. Now, if you'd like to see more red things, head over to It's A Very Cherry World, where Sue is our awesome hostess every week!
