More to LOVE

Today I found some cute craft ideas for Valentine's day my local scrapbook store.  They said I could take pics of their crafts. They were at Scrapbook Barn in Gilbert AZ. Check out their BLOG!
These were taken with my phone, so I hope you can see the details well enough.

These are 4 X 4 X 4 blocks that you can cut out of a 4 X 4 piece of pine or the store does sell them for $2.99 each.  They are then covered with scrapbook paper (you can glue these on with any adhesive or mod podge).  Distress the blocks with distress ink.  The Letters are chip board letters with scrapbook paper on them with added embellishments.  The letters are affixed with foam tape to add dimension. 

This heart is roughly 18" tall and cut into 4 different pieces and then tied back together with ribbon.  Each piece is covered with a different paper and add lettering and embellishments.  Finish off with ribbon to use as a hanger.

Both of these sets of letters are made with 1 " thick letters. (you can buy the hallow card board letters or cut your own with your scroll saw and 1" pine)
The letters then have paper to cover them and then some fun embellishments.
(The letters stand roughly 5-7" tall)

Here is a class that they are doing at Mystic Paper in Downtown Mesa.  This is a really cute idea.  These charms look just like the candy!  Check out their Website
