a dose of lovely

With Valentine's day just around the corner, the blog world has been all a flutter with crafts, DIY projects and decorations. Here is a dose of some of the lovely things that caught my eye.

My favorite part of Valentine's day is, no surprise, making and sending cards! Paper Source has cooked up some festive card ideas and is sharing the recipes here.

I LA LA LOVE this cute poster, but not quite as much as I love these felt hearts! The first set were stitched with love by the Inspired Honey Bee. See the how-to here and her whole love filled mantel here

These felt hearts were created as a Save the Date magnet. The tag could be used to write something like "i heart you" or be just as cute with no tag at all! 

Perfect for any day of the year, this little print is especially cute for Valentine's day decorating.

eighteen25 has done it again...charming subway art that you can download for FREE!

Lately I've been on a bunting banner kick, but I'm loving these unique heart banners. The first is made out of fabric. I love the dimension of the hearts!

This one is made from photo strips.  It could also be made using 
patterned paper and still be lovely.

Here's a clever gift idea....turning a 6 pack of soda into a 6 pack of candy and snacks.

What first caught my eye was this "you are hot" tea bag label.

Then I realized there was another tag AND a lovely wrapper for the whole tea bag! 
I heart this.

For all the bakers in my life, how cute are these paper treat bags? Sweet treats for the sweetest day. My mouth is watering now just thinking of a heart shaped chocolate brownie! you can download the image here to print and add to your own treat bags!

I am a fan of cloths pins and clear treat bags,
so of course I loved this sweet combination of the two.
