Okay – so how many hours until Valentine’s day?
Yes - it's me –
doing last minute craft….AGAIN! When will I learn? But maybe you need
some last minute inspiration and ideas too? Or you can tuck the

recycled materials I’ve made some last minute love heart lace stamps. Here's how:

I only had two bits
of wood blocks left over from the skirting boards at our house. I also used box
For the stamping I
used acrylic paint. Because that's what I had. I added a bit of water too.
I placed the paper*
on top of the stamp and pressed down.
Add any extra
designs with a sharpie or other stamps. i had some letter stamps.If you are still making something for your Valentine, may the Saint be with you and enjoy! Is there anything better than making something homemade for your loved ones?
*I love this paper
that my Mum made from recycled paper. She passed away almost two years ago and this
is pretty much the last of her paper I have left.
