LPT Valentines Day – You’re never too old for crafts!Posted: February 23, 2012
I’m back to do a quick party post on our annual LPT Valentines Day Party! Every year my friends and I get together, trade cards we make, decorate boxes and play Valentine Jeopardy! Here are some quick shots from this year’s party.
Here are the cards I made a few weeks prior to the party.
I found these Olivia pig valentines cards at Walgreens and I just had to have them but we had a strict no store bought cards rules (which you’ll see some lazies broke later) so I painstakingly cut out the Olivia figures and glued them onto my big heart cards. I wanted to do traditional heart shaped Valentines this year so I got all these cute supplies from Target including the foam heart shapes, doilies, word and heart stickers. Then On the back I wrote some pretty awesome gangster Valentines messages like “Thugs need love too,” or “You’re my ride or die chick” lol, I love holidays what can I say.
We also played an awesome Valentines themed jeopardy game hosted by Xti and made and ate some yummy curry! After eating and playing, we exchanged cards. Here’s a shot of the cards I got!
As you can see we have two rule breakers who did store bought but it was ok because their cards came attached with yummy candy 🙂 Those cards with the figures of the girls were made my cousin and all traced and cut by hand! Xti did one out of paint swatches with a button glued to the bottom saying “you’re as cute as a button!”
This is one of the most childish things we do every year and it’s also the most fun! I hope to continue doing this until I’m old and grey and can’t pick up scissors anymore!
