Hidden Surprise Valentine

Hello everyone! Valentine's Day is only 16 days away and I promised to share a Valentine project, so here it is: Hidden Surprise Valentines.

Fully decorated
There are plenty of little tuck-ins on which to write messages of love and appreciation, or you can include coupons redeemable for breakfast in bed, a special night out, or homemade cookies!

Add bow to front
I made one for each of the girls and Benjamin.

Come on over to Seasonal Delights for the instructions and templates!

Hi Keeli,
Would you please check the file for the templates . It says it is damaged and can't be repaired. I can't wait to make a couple of these. Thanks.
Hugs,

Oh, I like this one!
I think I may use this idea ad a thank you gift to my mom and dad and Grandfather and brother who shared their home with our girls while we were in Ukraine for so long! It would be fun to let the girls tuck things into the pockets and everyone would enjoy helping with the glueing!

I like this idea, even though we no longer celebrate Valentines I am sure these ideas will come in handy for me to love on my hubby and kids when hubby leaves in a few months for his 15 month tour in Iraq

These are so cute. You make such lovely gifts. I would love to make these. I never seem to find the time. Do you have helpful suggestions on managing time, or could you please tell how you find the time to do all that you do, and to do it as well as you do. I'm truly impressed and amazed. On top of all that you are so young and very capable. Blessings~Kathi

Thanks for the tip Kelli. I guess I have to leave my house a lot right now. I drive my son to school in the morning 40min. one way, and then back. I homeschool our girls, and take my six year old to kindergarten from 1:30-4:00. So, things will change when my older son gets his licence. I too, don't watch much tv, except a little public broadcasting. Oh well, I know there are times and season we are busier than others. Blessing to you, Kathi
