valentine's mini album

This year I created one Valentine for my whole family. It's a mini album with two pages for each of my loves.

To house my album, I re-purposed the cardboard packaging from some Laughing Cow cheese wedges (which by the way, are really yummy). I covered the container with Fancy Pants, Vintage Valentine patterned papers and dressed up the top with a large bow made of paper strips and ribbons.
For the pages I cut various papers into circles and bound them together with a clip ring. Each of my three sweeties has an envelope on one of their pages containing a love note from me.

Supplies Papers, Buttons, Brads, Rubons, Ribbon: Fancy Pants Designs; Doilies & Bakers Twine:Martha Stewart; Mini Envelopes: unknown.  

So what about you? Are you making your Valentines this year? If so, I'd love to see them. Leave me a link in the comments section here. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a sweet weekend all!

I love this idea! And I have some Laughing Cow in my fridge right now! I tagged you on my blog, because I wanted some of my crafty friends to see your blog. I also posted knitting pics too. Nothing of your caliber, but fun anyway. Happy Valentine's Day!
