Lori Whitlock Valentine's Blog Hop!
Happy Blog Hop Thursday everyone! Isn't this a great way to get ready for the weekend? I am the last stop on this hop, on which I am absolutely positive you have seen (and maybe even pinned)all sorts of great ideas from the rest of Lori's team for THE DAY OF LOVE (did you read that in the Barry White voice I typed it in?). If you are hopping with us, you should have arrived from Corri's BLOG.
If you are just joining in and want to start from the beginning, head on over to Lori's BLOG to get started.
I don't know about you, but I LOVE to give out little gifts to the people who are special in my life, especially on Valentine's Day. But I am often plagued by what to get that isn't the standard box of Whitman's Candy that you buy at the grocery store. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against Whitman's - I just want something a little more personal. And if I can use my Silhouette to make it, that is even better!
When I saw Lori's 3D PURSE, I knew it fit the bill perfectly.
I would love to tell you that I sweated and labored over these for hours and hours but, truthfully, they were so easy to put together that my youngest child could have done it! The hardest thing I had to do was pick out which cute embellishments I wanted to use after the purses were assembled!
The little purses are the perfect size for holding gift cards and treats - which is exactly what I plan to do with these that I made for my daughters. I am going to make more for my co-workers and fill each purse with a couple of cookies and small candies. And, one will go to my mom filled with homemade Valentine's cards from my kids (and me) to her.
Don't forget, all items in Lori's STORE are 25% off through the weekend!
AND...she is giving away a free shape each day!
What a nice way to say she loves us!!!
