Tuesday Tute's - Vintage Valentines!

Isn't this vintage valentine fun?
Bring back memories?
I heart vintage valentines...suprised?...haha.

There are so many things that you can do with the one's you have collected or maybe you don't have any vintage valentines yet?...no problem...you can get some darling ones for free...here, here and here.
Maybe you could choose one to embroider ...

...and then sew it into this adorable red and white pom-pommy pillow!
I found it over at Brookhollow Lane and wanted to share it with you.
Such a clever idea!
You'll find the tute here.

And the cuteness continues over at Bakerella where she explains how she got vintage valentines on these cookies!
I love them!
You can find out how here.

The sweet and talented Elizabeth over at Creative Breathing always has the most adorable tutorials and this one is a must to go over and see.
Elizabeth shows us how she makes her own valentine works of art by starting out with a vintage valentine.
Go visit her here.

And after you have made all of your valentine treats ...go over to see Jessica at How About Orange and find out how to make heart shaped paper clips to help you package them up with extra cuteness and love:)
You can find out how to make them here.

I hope your week has started off well... and that all of you are knee deep in fun quilty fabric
Or...needle and thread
Or...glitter and glue...
Or...frosting and sprinkles...
Or...all of the above!...
At the same time...lol
Just remember to wear a cute apron:)

Oh, I love those vintage valentines. I even scored a vintage card box from my grandma once that had them in it!

And I am a TipNut fan and would have never thought to look for these. Thank you - I am passing this on to my daughter who just the other day asked where she could get cards to print for her son's class - these are just too cute!

I would not eat those cookies - they are just too adorable to spoil. Loved her 'tute' on making these.

Thank you for a lovely Vintage Valentines.
