I found these beauties at Fuchsia Bloom Studio on Etsy. They are sterling silver with my own birthstone, Garnet. The shape and style of these is so elegant and understated.
This little book was made by a bride for her groom on their wedding day, using only a pack of playing cards, some scrabble tiles and a ring binder. You can see the whole thing here at craftster.org
It would be a great handmade present for Valentine's day, birthdays, weddings and anniversaries.
Upcycled Crayons!! I've been wanting to do something similar for ages, the idea of melting anything gets me all excited. I'm definitely going to try this idea from Dave T Designs
Look how easy it is.....
I'd like to try drilling holes through the top of them to make them into little pendants for kids that they can use to colour with.
|Back to jewellery again with this scrabble tile revamped pendant from prettywhimsical at etsy.|
|...and this gorgeous valentine's themed charm bracelet from Laughing Vixen Lounge, also at Etsy. I like the jumble of beads and charms used here, especially the rubberised heart beads and the silver cupids.|
So when it comes gifts, go handmade!
The great thing about buying handmade gifts, especially on Valentines day, is the love that goes into creating the items. That's something you wont find at Hallmark.
