Valentines: Toy Boat

February 2, 2012

We worked on a couple of Valentine’s Day treat prototypes and were happy with how they came out! Ryan is still laughing at the very large bag of corks I ordered off eBay. I deal, a grand deal I tell you. Someone’s Two-Buck Chuck obsession was my advantage.

We tested the boats out and they indeed float! Our inspiration came from this tutorial by Jonah Lisa Land. I simplified ours a tiny bit since we have to crank out twenty five.

A few Valentines ideas I’m bookmarking for years ahead:

Love Bug Valentines | Secret Message | Color Theory Cards

And maybe, just maybe you were curious as to the depth of my nerdiness? Well, a couple years back I designed a couple of Twilight Valentines that you can download. Because it wasn’t enough that I was obsessed with the books at the time. I had to go out of my way to illustrate my passion. Um…tada?

    Those valentines are genius!! A much better alternative to a little card and piece candy. Love! :)

    Great valentines. I miss doing that with our kids as they don’t do that here in Germany. And your Twilight valentine is awesome. Absolutely—embrace the nerdiness, I say. I saw a Twilight tour in Italy advertised when we were in Volterra. So funny. If I were to make one, it would have to be a Downton Abbey valentine.

    Wait. People buy corks on eBay?! I could be selling corks on eBay?! I think I might have just gotten $10 richer! ….oh and the boat idea is cute too!
