Doilie Love

Lily and I are invited to a wonderful Mother/Daughter Valentine's Party tomorrow.
We came up with this idea for sweet Valentines to share with 12 other little girls.

They were so simple to make.

Just take a doilie...any size will do.
We used an 8 inch size round doilie and it was perfect.
Wrap it into a cone and secure with double sided tape.

For the inside, measure a piece of card stock to fit, and just make another little cone to slip in.
Attach a ribbon to the inside of the doily with tape, so it won't show.
The little hearts on the front are a freebie from Simple as That   .
{I am also linking up there.}

She has the most fantastic taste...thanks Rebecca!!

Now, fill it up with sweet treats.

Lily actually came up with the idea for the heart topper pencils.
Aren't they darling?

We used pink foam and felt. 
Just cut out a desired heart and make two slits for the pencil to pop through!

I also used the package of doilies to make a simple garland.
I think I paid $1 for a package of 32. I thought I may as well use them up.
Just fold the doilies over and secure with a little tape. I taped the ribbon to the inside so the doilies would not slip.

Isn't this a fun time of the year?


I am sharing HERE.

What fun!
You sure know how to capture some sweet photos. We were doing valentines the other day and came across some doiles. I've had them for years and could never come up with anything creative to make. A really great idea.

Those boots are the cutest thing:)

Happy Weekend to you!
