I have been hard at work making Valentines. Valentine cards, Valentine Candy boxes, valentine Spoolies and even Valentine bracelets. These photos are all of items I have made in the last couple of weeks. (accept for the boxes as that will be a post later) JoAnne of Vintage Dragonfly hosted a swap which consisted of exchanging what she called Valentine Spoolies. Some great examples came from Lynne Trash to treasure art and they are beautiful. . . . . .
She said do up some spoolies, but don't exactly copy these. I always need to do something different anyway. So here are the ones I came up with.
This one will be sent to my partner Jo. I used lots of glass glitter and even little bits of broken pink mercury glass. I used an old tiny heart shaped box, and two old spools. I envisioned
the back side.
I decided to use some vintage wooden spools and some cute small old bottles all put together to form a Valentine Spoolie. I really had fun creating these. The first will be sent to my partner. And then I just really wanted to keep one for myself.
Then I got busy making Valentine cards. I love paper crafting. I also had 2 partners for a Valentine Candy box swap, so I decorated candy boxes, but that will be for a new post later.
