Valentine's Day (Oldies but) Goodies | February 03, 2012

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I thought I'd revisit some of my old Valentine's Day DIY projects from previous years...just in case you missed it, or simply felt like taking another peek!  Most contain free stationery printables to help you re-create the project for yourself.

DIY 'Je t'aime' coffee cup wrappers - Wouldn't it be cute to surprise a loved one on Valentine's morning with a cup of coffee for the road that literally says 'I love you'?  With this concept in mind I designed these love-themed wrappers that can be used to dress up a disposable coffee cup. The perfect romantic gesture for the caffeine obsessed!

DIY 'Je t'aime' mini card sets - I really enjoyed creating the design for the 'Je t'aime' coffee cup wrappers' so I thought I'd also transform them into mini cards with polka dot lined envelopes.

DIY Valentine Post-it Love Notes - To elicit a smile or two from your loved one on Valentines's day, try writing sweet little messages on post-its and leave them in unexpected locations for your partner to find.

DIY Origami Heart Love Note - Create an origami paper heart and write a private message to a loved one inside.

DIY Valentine Popcorn Invitation ( for a cosy night in ) - Instead of splurging on dinner at a fancy restaurant, have a cosy night in on the couch. A couch 'picnic' of sorts. Snuggle under a blanket, order take-out, indulge in champagne, popcorn and candy in front of your favourite romantic movie. Download the bits n' pieces to re-create this 'popcorn' invitation to give to your loved one.

    I had the perfect idea for Valentine's day: a Sacher cake with edible gold (I found it in Italy... it is produced by the italian company "Manetti Battiloro"). What do you think about? I think it a very imaginative creation!
