Welcome to a LOVEly blog hop with Clearsnap and Ann Butler Designs! Last month at the CHA trade show, we released a new collection of foam and rubber stamps with Ann Butler Designs, called Background Basics, to compliment her line of ColorBox Crafter's Inks, ColorBox Art Screens, and her existing faux quilting stamp lines. Today, our teams are sharing Valentine craft ideas you can make tonight for your special someone for Valentine's Day. I created an easy spa gift set to give to someone special on Valentine's Day, using the Background Basics Stamps to make a pattern on a plain muslin bag:
This project some together lickety split with a few basic supplies:
- Muslin Bag
- ColorBox Crafter's Ink, assorted colors
- ColorBox Background Basics Stamps by Ann Butler Designs
I added a removable pin to the bag as a pretty way to dress it up. The pin can be clipped anywhere so the recipient can wear it in their hair, on a sweater, or attach it to another gift in the future.
- Handmade Flowers – Rose Tutorial and the Posie Tutorial are on my blog
- Bobby Pin
- Felt Circle
- Offray Heathered Iris 1.5″ Ribbon
- Glue Gun
Fill the bag with all kinds of fabulous spa goodies. I am planning to use this bag for a guest welcome gift when we have guests stay over. I've filled it with an essential oil lavender spray for the bed, a bag of cedar shavings to place in their suitcase, and a scented soap for freshening up.
Here's how to create the bag and the flower pin:
Be sure to pin this idea to save for future use! This project is great for Mother's Day or a gift for a friend who travels and so much more beyond Valentine's Day!
