Post-college, many of my friends took ginormous leaps and moved around the country. Although I am so proud of their boldness, I miss them dearly and wish we could all move back into our frat-worthy 10 roommate house in Bloomington. It was just as bad as it sounds, trust me. This Valentine’s day left me longing for my group of friends and wishing I could tell them just how much I love each and every one of them.
For me, friends are just as worthy of Valentine’s celebrations as the significant others in our lives. Valentine’s Day is about love. And boy, oh boy, do I love my friends. So because I can’t squeeze, hug and kiss every one of them this year, I decided to craft some homemade love to send across the country.
I started with some blank kraft paper cards and envelopes. Using some baker’s twine, I threaded hearts on the front.
I then added Washi tape in festive Valentine’s Day colors. The uses for baker’s twine and Washi tape are literally endless. I’ve used them on so many of my recent projects and wrapping jobs.
Finally, I sealed the envelopes with some additional tape and lots of love. If I can’t be with my pals this Valentine’s Day… I can at least send them some cutie pie notes!
