I love Valentine’s Day, and the truth is, I always have. Even when I was single, broke, and in no position to treat my self or anyone else – I tresured the holiday. Here’s why: It’s a holiday centered on love. That’s basic and not exclusionary. So, for years I’ve used the day as an invitation to tell the ones nearest and dearest to me how much they mean to me; a love letter to the ones I love.
- Heart balloons (6″) + helium tank
- Kraft paper box to house your balloon – these ones are the perfect size.
- Mini glass bottles with cork stoppers (and eye hooks)
- A small strip of paper (about 1/2″ x 6″ (or a long as you like!) rolled into a scroll)
Pour your heart out on that little strip of paper. Tell your people how much you love them. They deserve to hear it and telling them will give you all the feels.
Roll your paper into a scroll and slip it into the glass bottle. Set aside.
Fill your heart balloon with helium. These ballons are small, so be careful not to over-inflate them; they fill quickly.
Measure about an arm’s length of string and cut. Tie one end to the end of your balloon and the other to the end of the eye hook on your bottle’s cork top.
Carefully place your love letter contraption in your brown box, put a ribbon on it and share your love. It’s the sweetest surprise.
