I’m sure I can’t be the first person to come up with this concept – but what a great (and frugal) alternative to the overpriced Valentine stamps at the local craft store. I mean, come on – $5 for a HEART?
I raided the container of $1 foam hearts (with stickers!) from Target and stuck them on Claire’s blocks. I doubled them up to make sure the surface was really raised, makes stamping things easier for the chubby-fisted toddler in my life.
Et voila! A stamp on the cheap. There are about 300 hearts in that dollar tub and the blocks were a garage sale find, it doesn’t get much better than that.
Stick your foam to a spoon, a rock, a stick – whatever! And don’t think this is limited to hearts. Oh no! I have plans for shamrocks and letters and boats and animals…
You’ll find me stalking that bargain center in Target. I’ll be the crazy lady with ink on my hands and a kitchen that looks like cupid’s moved in.
Just keeping it real. We’re a little Valentine obsessed over here if you haven’t noticed.
