I am all about cute, homemade, sentimental gifts. So for a lot of holidays I usually try to DIY something (and these usually end up being the gifts that are my Love’s favorite)… Of course, I got a lot of my inspiration for this project from various Pinterest pins. But, I added my own personal touch and made it all about my Love and I, and our relationship.
This year for my Valentine, I created an “ABCs of Our Love” booklet.
Here’s how I did it:
First, I purchased a tiny notebook from Target. (I got the Molskine brand which came in a pack of two, and measures approximately 4×3 inches.)
Next, I created the first page. (Since I am a perfectionist, I typed everything.)
Then, I added each letter of the alphabet onto a separate page (I used alphabet stickers)…
After that, I created a sentence or 2 about our life or love that fit each letter. Since I used sentences, I bolded the letter in the sentence that matched the letter for that page. (For example: T is for TriviaCrack.)
Finally, I decorated the front cover with a simple sticker, and then added some Valentine’s ribbon.
It’s amazing how something so simple can mean so much. It didn’t take much effort or cost a lot, but it is personalized and meaningful. To me, that’s what Valentine’s Day is all about. I also included a little box of chocolates and a card when I sent it out.
Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours!
