Twos-Day 2/10

For today's Twos-day Feature I have a couple of really cute, fun and EASY Valentine projects!!!

First is the U-Rock I-pod Valentine! Both of these ideas came from Family Fun Magazine, Feb 2009. The little boxes of candy hearts are available everywhere this time of year. The sample in the magazine was pink, but I am thinking that I will give this one to Travis and pink isn't his favorite color. The magazine one used mini-PB cups for the ear buds, but I liked the Hershey Kisses. Now for the best part.... the screen and scroll wheel are available on the website as a PDF download. There are two on the page, one with their choice of songs and one that you can type in your very own list of favorite songs. Get the download HERE.
How super cute are these pencils. They are called "Get to the Point!" I am sure they would be even cuter if they were made with Valentine theme pencils or pens. The font I used is called Scrap Kids and was at one time a free download from I printed a page of them using a template for return address labels, 30 on one page. Tags were made with the Creative Memories NEW Tag Punch. I will have to feature it in a future post. It is a pretty nifty two step punch. I embellished the tags with a tiny scrap of paper on the end and tied it to the pencil with a pretty ribbon.
I wasn't true to the two projects from one (tool, stamp, paper) but I hope you like the projects anyway! The magazine that they came from is one of my favorites. I have subscribed to it for many years. I get so many fantastic ideas from it for paper crafting and kids craft projects and recipes and cake ideas and Halloween costumes. It isn't expensive either, just $10 a year.
Take care!
