Possible to make hundreds of deceptively simple valentine gifts using the kit contents and home recyclables This inspired book is packed with simple, clever, completely adorable ideas for valentine cards and gifts. The kit contents -- jewels, glitter, ribbons, and glue -- combined with household recyclables can yield hundreds of valentines! From a floral candy tube (crafted from a recycled toilet paper roll) to jar lid lockets to recycled paper cards, each project is easy to make (designed for 6-12 year-olds)and truly beautiful to behold.

Sorry for the non-bookish post, but I‘m showing off my new masks that my mom made for me! I knew she was making a sloth one but didn‘t realize it was so adorable. I now have 3 HP masks. She‘s been making masks since the pandemic started & has given away most of them to family, friends, & schools. Even though I‘m vaccinated now, I‘ll still wear a mask.

candority Awh, the sloths are so cute!🦥 2y

It‘s FEBRUARY #LITSYLOVE FOLKS ❤️

Mail a VALENTINE to someone (or everyone) in your state/country (or closest)

If you want to, of course! I made this with Misty knowing sometimes we just need someone to suggest to us in the doldrums of life, a fun challenge that brings joy! So much hatred/discourse every where we turn, these snail mail letters and cards sure do make the world a better place!! ❤️❤️❤️💌📬

tracey38 There are a few on the list in my state, and I think I exchange mail with all of them already, but need to double check. But will definitely do this! 💗 3y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 💗💗💗 I love all of the happy mail!! 3y

Cupcake12 I joined #litsylove this year and have received so many beautiful kind letters and cards already. I‘ve made my valentines cards too. It‘s such a nice feeling when you receive a letter/note through the post-to think someone has taken the time out of their day to think about you ❤️🌎 3y

Eggs You‘re so welcome Linda💕 BTW I have a bureau ‘scarf‘ with a similar design 😊 3y
Leftcoastzen @Eggs I love them. I inherited many from members of the family, but if I find them in good condition at a thrift or yard sale I find it hard to resist adding it to the collection. 3y
SilversReviews Pretty. 3y
Suet624 I just came across some of these scarves that my mother had packed away. Feel like making some of my own. 3y

Mailed off my #cupidgoespostal package today priority mail, so it will get there Friday. I could not find tissue paper because the kids used it all for crafts, so it's wrapped in antique map wrapping paper, my only not-Christmas option. And of course I forgot the picture. And put my name on the outside with my Litsy handle. *slapsforehead
