love notes :: a free download

love notes.

for him.
for her.
for them.
for you.
to fit in a lunchbox.
a backpack.
a purse.
an envelope.
under a pillow.

I trimmed the love note and added it to the front of a ready-made card base. The addition of the pink chipboard heart makes it extra cute! Excuse the dust. This is a real home, not a tv home.

Inside this cabinet is coffee central, and the last stop Gordon makes on his way out the door for work in the morning. It's a sure thing he'll see this! And it's also a sure thing that he'll shake his head at my extreme goofiness. You could also hang it from the rear view mirror in the car if you can sneak out to do it with hubby being none the wiser. I used Marschino baker's twine from The Twinery to thread through the holes I punched at the top of the love note.

You probably knew that I was going to come up with a way to use these as treat bag toppers, so here you go. Using the Lilac twine from The Twinery, I punched two holes with my Crop-o-Dile through the bag and topper layers and threaded a lilac punched heart {to pick up on the purple hues in the background paper} through at the same time and tied a square knot to hold it all together. The bags are from the Dollar Tree {40 for $1}.

And lastly, the bedtime love note:

Just a few ideas I came up with, but the sky's the limit. Feel free to personalize and customize these as you wish. You could even trim inside the lines if you don't like the background paper I designed. Can you believe, I designed my own "paper." Get your free download here {for personal use only}.
