|FAMILY|valentines RAK

 
 
As a parent I think it's our responsibility to teach T how to respect and treat women, don't get me wrong, he has a fantastic role model in The Hubs but I think he does need a little extra help to show that it's not all about grand gestures the little things matter too. 

We created this little RAK for our friends in the village.

 
You will need:
Roses (we got 2 dozen from Aldi for £5, £3 for the tiny red and £2 for the pretty pink)
Heart shapes
Gift wrap ribbon
Hole punch
Silver sharpie

 
 
I cut my heart shapes out using my cuttlebug but you can just as easily cut out by hand.
 
 
Simply all we did was write on a message, punch a hole and tie to the roses, we left a really long loop so we could attach to our recipients doors!

 
We made 7 of these and took them round to our friends, we had some lovely feedback from our friends and T even got a valentine back from one.
 
I'm really glad I helped T to do this, I think this could be a nice little new tradition for us to do each year.
 
Happy Valentines Day! x

  3. This is such a lovely idea. When I was little I used to make cards for all of the old people in my street in case their other half had forgotten or to make sure they weren't alone!
