Who Wrote the Book of Love?

If you know me, then you know that crafting is my love language.  I was honored to be asked to help out our church by making decorations for the annual Valentine Banquet, hosted by our student ministry.  The goal is to help the students earn money to pay for their youth trips. Needless to say, I was operating on a tiny, tiny budget so as much money as possible would go to the students.  So, I spent two weeks in February making as many flowers as possible out of tissue paper, cupcake liners, and (my favorite) coffee filters.  I am so proud of the way everything turned out that I wanted to share it with you.  Check out the pictures below and let me know what you think.  I will be offering the hand drawn “charger plates” on brown paper in  my Etsy shop in sets of eight.  I think it could be such a neat addition to a rustic holiday table and they could be personalized!  I’d love to hear your thoughts.

This is a concept drawing of my earliest ideas.  The books were a great choice for the centerpieces because they were free and could be wrapped with any paper to match our theme.

These are the hand-drawn charger place mats that I made (70, to be exact). A monogram could be added in the middle, or even a holiday doodle.  And the price is super reasonable!  I’d love your feedback.

Be blessed!
