Several of you have asked how we "present" our
Each year, the Frog Princess
designs a card
that I copy on with my computer scanner/printer.
Then, we just put them in an envelope with the crayon hearts tucked inside.
You could even make your own envelopes
out of recycled paper if you have a lot of spare time...
I use envelopes from a giant
bag of stray envelopes
I've collected and saved over the years for projects like this.
Some folks like to use
double-sided foam tape
to stick the crayons to their valentines but I don't think that is very planet friendly
and...I'm too lazy!
Have you ever seen what that stuff does to your craft scissors?!
This year, The Frog Princess drew
6 different Valentine designs
on a sheet of white office paper, then I scanned them,
and printed 4 sheets of them on
self-adhesive (office) labels.
We cut them apart on the paper cutter and added them to some card stock from our stash.
I love the way the scanned marker and crayon
drawings look like
original art work.
Happy Valentine's Day!
P.S. Thank you for all of the kind comments about Mini-Saurus' croup yesterday.
She's doing much better. Now she's just in full throttle coughing-sneezing-snotty cold mode.
My new hobby is hand washing.
