CUTE little gold (silver and metallic red were available too, but I just bought gold) metallic piggy banks. I’m trying to figure out a way to ‘cover’ the coin slot, the I will glitter them and add a crown. Doing a ‘woodland’ themed Christmas in my booth NEXT year.
I know. I KNOW!! It’s not even Christmas yet and I’m thinking about Valentine stuff!
’tis the life of a crater though. When you start working on Christmas stuff in the summer, you are ready for the next holiday this soon. It’s a necessity really. I do sometimes still crank out a few Christmas items this late in the year, but usually set them aside for a jump-start on NEXT years projects.
The other vendors at the antique mall tend to look at me kind of funny when I am there the day after New Years with my Valentine goods. But HONESTLY, I sell more of the Valentine stuff in January than I do in February.
I was just perusing Pinterest to get my Valentine creative juices going and found pin that I just HAD to share:
Pretty FABULOUS, eh?!?!?
And if you aren’t already a fan of mrspollyrogers blog, you MUST add her to your list of favorite dollar store sites.
I actually HAVE all the supplies needed for this project in ‘my stash’. Well the heart boxes ans stickers at least. bought them some time ago and just never came up with an idea for using them. I’ve never worked with gold or silver leaf, so I may have to improvise on that part.
