Thanks to the Dollar Tree for Helping Me Make Valentines for Veterans!

Yep, I did it again this year....had to make PRACTICAL Valentines for our Veterans.
No, I didn't HAVE to be PRACTICAL....I just couldn't buy
a box of valentines and just sign my name on the back.
I want them to be able to use them....make them functionable (is that a word?).
You can get 4 mini-composition notebooks for $1.00.
Sheets of stickers for $1.00 each.
Each notebook is already decorated with a bright cover.
I added a sweet message on the first page.
20 books for about .50 each.
I tried to find some thin ribbon to add for a bookmark...sort of like the kind
in a Bible....no luck.

You still have time to make some.
Click HERE to find out how you can participate in Valentines for Vets!!!
I want to thank REGAN and TIFFANI for doing such a wonderful
job decorating them.
You can do a search at the top of my blog for VALENTINES to see what I made last year.

Cute!
I haven't seen these at my Dollar Stores here.

That is a really great idea! Wal-Mart used to sell ribbon by the roll at reasonable prices. Most Wal-Mat stores have dropped their fabric & craft sections though. If you have a fabric store nearby, you might be able to get some nice ribbon by the roll, or by the yard, at an inexpensive price. A nice 1/4-inch satin ribbon would probably work well. :)
