I've seen candles with pressed flowers, and have always wondered how I could cheat making them. By that, I mean, not having to dip candles and make them from scratch myself. Yes, I know I could (and I should actually try to DIY right?), but I wanted an easy way out. Here's the quick "cheat" method!
I spent the Valentine's Day weekend in Hong Kong with a couple of my highschool girls. We didn't have a set itinerary. We just wanted to walk around, eat good food, scout for art supplies, take lots of photos and enjoy the cool weather. We accomplished everything! Here are some snapshots from our trip. Oh, and if you scroll down you can watch the video diary we made. :)
I still remember how I learned to fold letters into origami hearts like these. It was sometime in highschool. I had received a letter folded into this cute little heart. I had left it in my room while I was off to school. When I got back home, that letter was unraveled on my bed. Whoever snooped to read it, couldn't put back the humpty dumpty of a letter back together again. Did a heart-shaped letter scream love letter? I was pretty pissed off back then, but I find it extremely funny now. Read on to learn how to make an origami heart. (Scroll down to the very end to watch a video tutorial instead!)
I remember when I used to give my friends Valentine's Day cards or goodies, even if I wasn't all for the day of hearts. I used it as an excuse to give my closest buds gifts. As always, it was more the thrill of packing the goodies up rather than the gifts themselves. For the the day of everything red, here's a cute way of packing up a batch of home baked cookies! All you need are brown paper bags, cardstock, and a craft punch!
