DIY Valentine Post-it Love Notes | February 09, 2011

To elicit a smile or two from your loved one on Valentines's day (or any day for that matter) try writing sweet little messages on post-its and leave them in unexpected locations for your partner to find. Places to hide them include- on your partner's pillow, on the bathroom mirror, on top of your partner's laptop or on the fridge door. Hopefully it will brighten up their day!

To dress up your notes a little, try using alphabet stamps in combination with a variety of bright and fun ink colours to create your messages.

I'm completely smitten with the 'Duncan' alphabet stamp set from 7321Design. The set is described as "DIY" which basically means you have to attach the rubber stamps to their plastic handles. It takes a bit of time to set up but it's well worth it for such beautiful lettering.

There's a bunch of other cute stamp sets in the DIY range also.

Melbournites who want to pick up this stamp set locally should try Handworks on Chapel St. in Prahran.

Happy stamping!

    Another fun idea along those same lines is to use a dry erase marker to write on the bathroom mirror, windows or anything porcelain. I love to leave my husband a message on the mirror before I go to bed since he gets up before I do. Then when I get up and he's already gone to work, there's a message from him scribbled beneath the one I wrote.
  12. These are really sweet. One of the most romantic thing my fiance ever did was leave me a post that read 'xoxo, B.' So simple, but really touching. I still have it, 3 years later.
  13. I'm a sucker for anything DIY! this looks beautiful and so easy to make :)
  14. so sweet! I love the colors and the font on the stamps.
  15. adorable idea! i used to leave notes all the time, i miss doing it. i'll have to leave them for strangers to find this year!

  20. Nice, lovely!!!!!
  21. I love the use of different colored inks and the font of those letter stamps! And I love the combo of hand-written and hand-stamped. Nice touch.

    A while back I did a similarly-themed DIY in which I stamped supportive messages (like "you just blew my mind") into Field Notes -- they came out awesome.
