Love Notes

This week I had my Sunday school girls Activity Day
and my teaching partner and I decided to help them put
together some Valentine envelopes so that they could 
exchange anonymous admiration notes to each other
for our upcoming Valentine party.

My teaching partner Jill is one of the most creative people I know~
she is seriously amazing and we'll have to show off her crazy talent here soon!
She came up with these cute envelopes that we let the girls,
who are 8-11 years of age then decorate and sew buttons on.

Of course I had to come home and make some up for me!
Candace has a houseful of sick kids this week and is under the weather too
so we have stayed clear except for the quick~Purell soaked hands~exchange
in my driveway for the pinking shears.:)  So this week I am missing my sis and her camera 
with the great pics she takes!
I love the elongated size of these envelopes and they were the perfect fit
for all those goodies we love to grab in the dollar bin at Target!
I made a couple to take to some of my friends
and even did a smaller version to hold some cute note cards I found too.
Here is the pattern I made up with the measurements~
We used primarily felt but I had to try one with some of the cute Valentine fabric
for the liner that I found at Hobby Lobby.
Some of the fabric was so cute I actually got some to make a dress for my daughter....
we'll see if that ever happens.  Probably by the time I get around to it, it'll have
to be a mini-skirt or something.:)

Pretty easy and pretty inexpensive to make
and it's for sure something you and others will love to get!

I want one, too! The buttons were a great idea, so simple, but so bold and graphic:)
