Valentine's Day has always been a fun holiday for me, maybe because my birthday is the day before. lol In grade school, I always looked forward to making our Valentine holders at school, picking out the coolest Valentines to hand out, making sure I did NOT put the boys names on the "love" Valentines, then looking through every one of them to see who gave me what. Then when I was older, as my friends and I would walk past the office at school, I'd secretly wish and hope some of those flowers or balloons were for me. Well, that never happened, lol, but I do remember one year when I was in high school that I came in to the kitchen for breakfast and my dad had left a little teddy bear and a card for me by my plate (my sister got something, too.) I still have that bear; it was a total surprise and really meant a lot to me. While my husband and I don't do much to celebrate (we celebrate for my birthday and Bill thinks it's a dumb made up holiday created by card companies), we usually celebrate with the kids - a candlelight dinner, heart pizza, a little surprise in the morning, or a special dessert, just something simple but fun.
This year I decided I needed some new decorations. When I first started on Pinterest, this super cute Rosette Kissing Ball from The Idea Room was one of the very first things I pinned. 487 pins later and I'm finally getting it done. :) Yeah!
|These are the first couple of days - bigger, but more flat roses.|
|This is how I ended, smaller but stand up more. These were my favorite, but I think it took more roses this way.|
|If you have holes, just roll a little scrap, fold it in half and stuff it in.|
