DIY Leather Bow Valentine


Can you believe January is already coming to an end? As a blogger I always feel like the months and holidays fly by because I’m constantly looking ahead to the next season. This Valentine’s Day is no different. I usually don’t put much thought into what to do for our kids but this is the first year I have a school-aged child and it is so. much. fun. Planning stuff for me and my husband is fun too, of course. But he just doesn’t get excited to wake up to a heart-attack on his door the same way my 4 1/2 year old does. This year, I wanted to make something special for all of Eliza’s little friends. Since there are only 5 little girls in her class, we made little leather bows for her to give to each of them at their class party. I also couldn’t help but include Tom Kat Studio’s awesome lunch box notes as little love notes, signed by Eliza! Keep scrolling to see how to make your own Leather Bow Valentines.
