Valentine's Day Countdown Envelope Banner

Submitted to Community Café

Although the countdown to Valentine's Day has already begun, you can still jump in and have fun for the last week or so. Here's an idea for you...  (MY KIDS LOVE THIS!)

I used 1 grocery bag for all 14 envelopes and used the back side of my old business cards for the inserts, white yarn, a couple Sharpies, a glue stick, and some scotch tape. You can paint little hearts and numbers on the front of the envelope or use a marker. The craft paint that was in the Creator's Studio Valentine's Day Kit would be perfect.

To make the envelope you can just measure around your business card and add an inch and a half flap, that'll be a decent size to be able to fold down and make an envelope. I used the glue stick to glue the front flap shut and Scotch tape to tape it to the yarn.

I don't think the pictures are loading in chronological order, but it's pretty easy to figure out.

HAVE FUN!!!
