Last Minute Valentines

Here on the Island if you are not shopping 1 month in advance you can forgot being able to find anything you need.  We finished shopping for Christmas before Thanksgiving.  Anyone who knows me knows I function best last minute and in a crunch - I think because I am forced to focus.  I don't like to slowly work on anything.  Projects get all of my attention until they are done.

Currently my project is a quilt (oh, and taking care of a baby and 3 kids and a husband - you know - laundry and stuff).  So, I have not been thinking about Valentines day, until it was time to make them.  I didn't want a project.  So first, I avoided looking at any blogs for ideas (so glad I did).  Second, we will just buy the goofy ones from the store - none to be seen.  I couldn't even find a conversation heart.  Third, come up with a quick  - make the kids - happy idea.

They couldn't be too girly.  Origami Envelopes with Tokyo Tape and Chocolate Hearts.
