LOVE IS IN THE AIR ~ FREE VINTAGE VALENTINES PROJECTS, CARDS AND GRAPHICS


"Love grows by giving
The love we give away is the only love we keep. 
The only way to retain love is to give it away.
~ Elbert Hubbard, American writer


How will you be showing your love this Valentines Day?

Like a box of Valentines Chocolates, 
today's post is a mixed collection of sweet treats for you:
  • Three Vintage Valentine Card print-cut-and fold PDFs 
  • A Treat Box Template
  • Valentine Cupcake Topper PDF
  • From my personal archives, I've pulled some charming Valentine postcards for you to use in collage, decoupage, scrapbooking, card-making, etc.

To make these Valentine Treat Boxes, download this template.  Print it out "as-is" for a pink box, or print, cut and use as a pattern on your own special paper.  You can trace four boxes on a single sheet of scrapbook stock. Embellish with vintage ephemera, ribbons, and glitter and finish with a pipe cleaner handle.
