Lovely Luminaria

Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday! It has been one heck of a week. My son is sick with a horrendous cough that causes him to cough until he throws up. We took him to the doctor on Monday to hear that everything was clear. We had the snowstorm yesterday and school was canceled for my daughter both yesterday and today. Today we had to take my son back to the ped and found out he has a double ear infection. Poor little guy is just wiped out.

Anyway, on to something I made a few weeks ago. When I put up my Valentine’s Day decorations, I was struck by how few decorations I had. I remembered the luminaria tutorial on SCS and decided to make a few to spice up the mantle.

These were so simple to put together. I went with very traditional Valentine’s colors – Pretty in Pink and Real Red. I cut and scored my paper and then cut out my hearts, using the heart Nestabilities. After taping in my vellum and taping the luminaria together, punched out some hearts with the medium EK Success heart punch. Those hearts were run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. I added some of my favorite Michaels ribbon and added a Modern Tag, stamped with a sentiment from Heart Prints (PTI). Very quick, very simple & very adorable!

Here are a few more pictures of them on my mantle and lit up. I used one of the battery operated tea lights inside.
