Valentines Block

My good friend, Carol S., that hosts bunco every month has a few of these around her house, and I have seen them everywhere on the Internet.  They are so cute and can warm up any spot.

Well, I won this beauty for having the most bunco's in November.  I was very excited because I always wanted one too.  At Christmas, it looked really nice on my red hutch.  Now that Christmas is over, I just took the bow off and re-purposed it for Valentines Day.

I left the lights in and filled it with some festive shreds.

Now, I am very excited about these little beauties frames I got at Michael's.  I also used one for my "Saturday Basket" sign (here).  Their dollar spot is now $1.50, but, I still got a few.  So many colors/shapes and possibilities.  I have another craft in mind for them : )

I just punched the back off.

Attached some of these little sticky things,

and added it to my block.

I got this pretty ribbon from the Dollar Tree and

made a bow.

Target has some really cute stickers.

I put the sticker inside the frame, and --


Happy Crafting.
