14 Days of Love

Have you ever heard of the 12 days of Christmas?!  
Well, here are the 14 days of Love!

If you haven't heard of the blog Love Actually, you have got to check it out!  I find the cutest romance ideas here, and I frequently refer my husband to these awesome ideas.  As we are approaching Valentine's Day, I really loved the idea of a Valentine's countdown calendar.   I was inspired.  So I decided to make my own "14 Days of Love".  Mr. Oopsey Daisy thinks that this is one of my best projects yet!  Here is what I did:


1.  Ideas.  I thought of 14 romantic (for him) or thoughtful (for me) ideas to do for each day--1 for each of 14 days.  Some examples:
* Write and send each other love letters.
* Read your old wedding cards.
* Dance to "your" song together.
* Bring home a favorite treat for each other, etc.
Be creative!  Then, I created a card with instructions on what to do for that day. I also laminated them for longevity.  (Make sure the cards will fit snugly into an envelope.)


2.  Pockets Then, I made 14 pockets to hold these delightful thoughtful-romantic gestures.  I took an actual envelope (a long one), cut it in half, and then mod-podged cute Valentine-ish paper to the front.  I cut a triangle to form a "lip"of the pocket, and glued corresponding numbers on to each one.  This is what the assembly looked like.... Grabbed a half envelope, glued the paper on, cut the lip, glued on the numbers.

Here is what each pocket looked like:

Guess what I did with each pocket?  Yep, I laminated them! (If you take a razor blade, you can slit the opening after your laminate the pockets.)


3.  Final Assembly.  Then I put each card into the corresponding pocket.  Look how cute they look?!  I told my husband that there is no peeking.  He has to wait until each morning to pull out the card.


4.  Sign.  I had some leftover paper, so I made a little sign out of some scraps and cut out the letters on my Cricut.  Also laminated.


5.  Ready to go!  Last night, I used sticky tack to hang this up in our bedroom.  Can you believe that today is already February 1st?!  Today we pulled out our first activity...

Now it's just too bad that Mr. Oopsey Daisy is going to be out of town for 8 out of the 14 days of love!!  Oh well, we will have extra to do when he is in town!!
