Pinterest: I Tried It (Love Notes)


Welcome Pinners and friends!  If you've tried something from one of your pinboards this week and blogged about it, you can link up your post at the bottom of this one.  I really love to see what you come up with and how you interpret your pins.

This week I was trying to find some inspiration for new items for my shop.  Though I'm in the midst of a small shop-name crisis, I still love working with paper, it is the main feature in my shop, and it's going to remain that way.  So I hit up my paper projects board, on which I have plenty of cute things that I'd like to either try to make, or there is some element in what I saw that I'd like to do something with.  This week's project:


I just love how simple and fun these are!  And trust me, I have plenty of paper hanging around that I could play around with.  I had to decide whether to use a thinner paper or a slightly heavier-weight cardstock.  I ended up going with the stock, but I think they would work out just as well (maybe better) with thinner paper.  I guess it just depends on your purpose for them.  Here's what I came up with:





So cute!  I had three coordinating papers that I frankly had no idea what to do with, and now they are love notes!  Perfect for lunchboxes, briefcases, coat pockets, you name it.  Or, you can glue them together and use them just as envelopes.  You can find them in my shop here.  I love a little bit of inspiration!

So how about you?  How were your pinning experiments this week?  Link up below or leave a comment!  And remember- same time next week!  I had a lot of fun trying this one out and may stick to the sewing board for a little while.

Feel free to grab a botton to add to your post to share this link-up with your readers!

  4. What a clever idea! Who would have thought that a heart shape could become an envelope. Thanks for sharing this idea.
