with valentine’s day right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about ways to celebrate the special people in your life (if you haven’t already). i’m a fan of handmade gifts, especially when budgets are tight, and these ideas from twig & thistle are just perfect. emily at wide open spaces sent over their first idea (which she saw on rachel best’s site), which is a free valentine’s day design you can download and print onto a paper bag to house v-day baked goods. i don’t know many people who don’t enjoy a good brownie or cookie so this would be a great idea for anyone looking to bake their way into their loved one’s heart. click here for the free tutorial at twig and thistle.
twig and thistle also posted a free download for a v-day pie box- which i think is such a fun idea. they listed a recipe for making a delicious apple pie, too- what’s not to love? so click here to check out their pie tutorial and start cooking.
