"Love Notes"

With Valentine's Day only a few weeks away, I wanted to come up with a fun way for our family to share a little love with each other.  I thought that it would be nice for us to leave "love notes" for each other.  I just needed to create a container for these notes.  Over the weekend I bought a jar of rocks from Target for my new vignette in my dining room.  You can go here to check it out those vignettes.
This jar was the perfect size.  You could use anything you have...maybe an oatmeal container or potato flakes container.
I got out my stash of scrapbook paper and picked something with that Valentine's Day feel.
I thought this one would be pretty.
I measured the height of the jar and cut the paper to size.
I used a glue stick to attach the paper.
I knew the paper wasn't going to fit completely around the jar.
I used the border from the paper and cut it to "patch" this area.
Using more scrapbook supplies, I glued a heart and the spelled out the words "Love Notes".
A very simple, but cute project.

I added a Valentine's Day pencil and some paper on top.  I made it a few days ago and already it is filled with many love notes from all of us to each other.  In my home we use the words I Love You on a daily basis.  But, I think it's even more meaningful when the time is taken to write loving things to each other.  What could be better than that?



Don't forget my first ever linky party is still going on.  Please link up any of your DIY, Home Decor, Craft etc. projects.  I can't wait to see what you've been up to.

What a sweet idea. It's been a long time since I left a love note - we say the words many times a day, but a note really is something special.
