When she was two, Avery was old enough to help make her own valentines.  The valentines were inspired by this blog post.  Avery had a fun time scribbling on different shades of red and pink paper, then I cut out hearts using this Marvy craft punch, printed a little message and pasted some patterned wrapping paper on the back.  Each valentine went into a glassine envelope with some bits of beautiful hand-pulled candy from Papabubble in NY.  The last step was sealing each envelope with washi tape.  It was such a fun process!  Thanks to lovelydesign for your inspiration.
