valentine DIY notebooks!

happy saturday my loves!
i've had the busiest/craziest week. more about this later, but for now work is finally done & i am so happy to say i am currently snuggled up on the couch watching hockey. [swoon]

i just wanted to post the cutest, easiest DIY ever!
i found these adorable polka dot notebooks at homesense, they came in a pack of 3 for $6 and i thought they were absolutely precious. i am also so in love with homesense.

i just thought this was a cute & crafty (and inexpensive) valentine gift to make for someone.

what you'll need
- mod podge (sparkly is best! obvs)
- a paint brush
- notebooks
- glue stick
- vintage valentines, or any cute valentine

i found these cutie valentines at the antique market, at st.lawrence market. the guy sold them 2 for $1, i got them last year and knew i wanted to use them for something but i wasn't sure what. i wish i got all of the ones he had because they were all absolutely adorable. these ones are from the 1950's and even had messages on the back! SO cute, i die for them.

// all you have to do -
glue your valentine of choice on the notebook with a glue stick,
smooth it out, paint the valentine with mod modge,
let them try over night,
put them in between some big books for a few hours to keep the print flat.

& THAT'S IT! how sweet right? i am going to send one of these to a friend and maybe i will have to keep one too. also, i just want to note these weren't bought in february so i didn't break one of my goals. hahaha, love it. let me know if you are making any cute valentine's day crafts, they are my faves.
