Be Mine Matchbook Valentines

Happy Valentine's Day blogger friends! Today I give you a very simple matchbook valentine. I actually made 16 of these and handed them out during my chemo treatment today to other chemo patients and my 2 nurses. I made similar ones last year for my daughter's 4th grade class shown HERE. These ones are little different in the fact that I turned them around and now the top is the bottom and the bottom is the top. I personally like them better this way. I was originally going to use just a simple heart on the front but while flipping through the Designer's Calender Cricut cartridge I found this heart with the "BE MINE" in the heart and I knew I had to use it. I really like the way it turned out and I hope you do too!

I used these items to create these matchbook valentines:
  • Red and white cardstock
  • Martha Stewart score board
  • Martha Stewart edge punch - lace heart
  • Designer's Calender Cricut cartridge - BE MINE heart
  • Happy Valentine's Day ribbon
  • Sweethearts candy - inside
I will entering these matchbook valentines in the following challenges and linky party:
