Hive, you guys knocked it out of the park this year! Your Valentine’s Day Swap creations were absolutely adorable, and so full of creativity. See for yourselves!
Sequinlove: I hand embroidered the hearts on to the tags and tied them onto notepads (for writing love notes, of course).
Jenilynevette: Handmade cards, “bee” honey sticks, Fun Dip, and tea!
MmeSilverBullet: I made the cards and ornaments!
taylorkirby: All homemade cards, envelopes, treats, and treat holders.
bebelicious1: I made these; the girls get candy filled bouquets. Yay!
Birdi: Cookies are from Katie Duran (Etsy) & the cards are homemade.
KsoontobeN: I made the cards by hand and wrote personalized letters to each partner inside the card.
little_lamb: Handmade Valentine’s Day cards—I had so much fun making these cards for my swap partners!
Mrs. Mouse: I purchased the template for these on Etsy from Cupcake Cutiees Party and Design and printed them myself onto glossy photo paper. I just had to add some glassine bags and some grocery store gumballs, and voila!
Phone Booth: With my wedding next month, I didn’t have time to get crafty, so I instead opted to send some things I love—a Sharpie, sticky notes, chocolate, and candy.
stephanie091512: All DIY, even the envelopes!
NowDontLetsBeSilly: Silly punny homemade cards, with a fun Valentine’s necklace!
veggie_rachel: Who doesn’t love jewelry and candy on Valentine’s Day?
Blonde17Jess: Valentines created with goodies from Target’s Dollar Spot! I was short on time, so I cheated and these are semi-DIY but turned out cute, I think!
BellaDee: I got the craft from Michaels as well as the burlap sack! And of course chocolates with a bee on it!
MrsNewDay: My outside-the-box Valentine’s Day Swap items!!!
Bribaby119: I made the cards and bought some goodies to go with them, minus the nail polish because I was told at the post office when I went to send these that it’s not allowed. So I apologize to my valentines. Boo Post Office, yay Valentine’s Day cards and candy!
pocketfox: My attempt at DIY valentines.
MrsEme: Made these on a cold day when we were all home from school/activities/etc. So much fun!!
Susana888: Bee rings for my swap partners. Bought from Payless ShoeSource. (Yes, they carry jewelry.) Boxes purchased from Papermart.com.
JennyEmm: I bought the cards off of Everythinglittlemiss (Etsy), because I’m NOT crafty and these were too cute to pass up. I also sent out little bee charms, similar to the ones passed around on the blog from bedazzledaccessory (Etsy), but unfortunately butterfingers me lost one, so one person got a heart pendant from Michaels. I hope everyone liked them!
Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s annual Valentine’s Day Swap! Hope you have super-fun plans with your sweetie tonight! See you back next year for our annual V-Day Swap!
