    how cute! i love wax seals too.

    This is brilliant. I might try and recreate this for Valentine's this year! 🙂

    awesome! another good idea for an urban project. make many of these and leave them in unusual but in somewhat open spaces, address the envelope to the finder of this envelope and put in happy messages. Happy Valentine's Day, You are special, etc., Maybe I will make some for the gym. It is so void in color, red would jazz it up and I could write, "you're doing great" messages. love the simplicity of your design!

    I love that you used a modern love column from ny times! Extra special touch!

    this is great and 100% better than anything bought in a store. I would give the photo tutorial as part of the valentine!

    I'm so trying this! Awesome.


  • Reply Marjorie Rose February 4, 2011 at 3:46 am

    The wax seal was the perfect "topping" to this unique valentine card. If we could only get one everyday..

    so cute. could you post the size of the paper. some of us are paper project challenged. 🙁

  • Reply Erin February 15, 2011 at 3:06 pm

    oh, yes! they're really tiny…unfolded the paper was, i would say, about 4.5 x 7 inches! next time, i'll measure!

  • Reply Anonymous January 22, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    This is cute, but the column you used is so ironic.

    • Reply Erin January 22, 2013 at 8:12 pm

      ha! isn't that the craziest story?
