Hi there! I have another easy Valentine's Day project for you... two actually!

Supplies Needed for the heart container
Supplies Needed for the book stack

For these two projects, I picked up a few children's board books for $1.99 each.

To make the cute heart container you'll just make some little hearts with clay and glue them onto the container.

Hearts are really easy to make, and I shared how I make them in the Peat Pot Turkeys post. Basically, you just make two little balls and then pinch them together at the bottom.

Form them to the side of the container to shape them so they'll stick nicely when you glue them. Then remove and bake according to the package directions.

Once they are baked and cooled, glue them all over the container with E-6000 glue.

To make the book stack, first sand the board books to remove a little bit of the shiny finish for painting.

Paint with white craft paint.

Then stamp the words of your choice onto the spines of the books.

Glue the books together if desired and then tie with baker's twine. I added polka dots to one of my books too.
