My Funny Valentine

I looked in the pantry one day last week and saw a whole box of unopened candy canes leftover from Christmas. I'm sure everyone has at least a few candy canes hanging around in their candy bowls...and here is a great way to use them up and make a pretty cute Valentine's Day craft too!


scrapbook paper
colored cardstock
candy canes
hot glue gun

First, lay your candy canes down on the paper in the shape of a heart. Use that shape to estimate the size that your card will be. Mine ended up being about 6 inches tall by 4 inches wide. Cut both the scrapbook paper and the colored card stock to that size.

Next, run a bead of hot glue down one side of the candy canes and attach them to the scrapbook paper. Trim around the edges of the candy canes so that the only part of the scrapbook paper that you see is inside the candy cane heart.

Then, attach the scrapbook paper/candy cane heart to the colored cardstock.
You can add a message on the front of the card.... ...or on the back of the card.
You could even frame these in cute picture frames with the glass removed.
What kind of Valentine's Day crafts are you working on?

Not Me! Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

The virus floating around my house last week {that I thought was going to be a quick 12 hours thing} did NOT end up staying around for almost 5 days! It is NOT finally gone, and we are NOT finally getting back to our normal routine after days of Gatorade, lots of toast, and a million loads of laundry! I am NOT completely giddy over the fact that I {hopefully} won't be cleaning up vomit today...or the rest of this week:)

Because the kiddos were NOT sick all week, I did NOT completely neglect my camera, leaving it in the case almost all week {except to take a few pics of my sick sleeping kids} and forgetting to put on my oh so cute camera strap! I do NOT feel like I missed almost a whole week of my life while we were sitting around the house...and I {really} do NOT have photographic evidence of that missing week!

Oh, and those million loads of laundry that I did NOT mention earlier...they were NOT stacked up in my living room over the weekend waiting to be folded. The huge stack of laundry was NOT sitting on a chair, towering taller than me! I did NOT consider taking a picture, but then decided I was too embarrassed to share because the stack was really that big! My wonderful hubby did NOT fold all of those clothes Sunday after church while I took a nap:)
