How to fold a doily into an envelope (Easy dolllar store Valentine’s Day craft)

How to fold a doily into an envelope fancy frugal life

Hi there! I hope you are haveing a fabulous day full of love and joy! Yesterday I prepped for my daughter’s kindergarten party and folded 30 of these heart doilies into envelopes. They made love letters to their parents today as a party craft. Our teacher does these every year and I thought it was so cute and clever. I’m sure their little letters will be a darling keepsake 🙂

To make these all you have to do is turn the heart upside down, fold the two sides in, and the bottom up. Glue the sides, and fold the top down as an envelope. So easy, right?

I also wanted to show you the arrangement I made for our teacher as a gift from the parents. I love that you can always make a gorgeous bouquet for under $20 with Trader Joes flowers!

Free Creative Classroom Printable Valentines I’ve Created

Eyeball Ring Valentine Fancy Frugal LIfe

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I’m sure many of you are working on the class cards with your little ones. We really have fun and enjoy doing these together, and it’s so cute to see the kids get so excited and come up with new concepts each year! Today I’m sharing our own easy ideas in case you need some last minute inspiration.

The first one I’d like to mention are these cute eyeball rings party favors from Target. They can be found in the birthday party isle and say the Sprintz brand on the packaging. My daughter picked these out herself and came up with the saying by herself too! She thinks it’s hilarious to do the two finger eye point hand motion.

Feel free to use my printable if you’d like to make these. All we did is punch a hole in the upper right corner and tie the rings with ribbon. She is so excited to give these out the her friends! 🙂

Hi there! It’s been awhile! Turns out it’s a little hard to work full time for another website and keep up my own. 🙂 If you’re curious what I’ve been up to, make sure to follow me over at I’ll be blogging and updating their recipes page–

Recipes at Hip2Saveas well as the crafts and DIY projects.– I’ve been doing some fun Valentine’s Day class printable ideas and lots of cooking!

We’ve been in this house for a year in a half and I haven’t shown too much of my daughter’s space. It was in a room with beige walls a few years ago in a previous house. And if you remember, decorating her room is what originally sparked my interest in blogging a few years ago. I remember staying up late at night searching through beautiful home dĂ©cor blogs and websites, before Pinterest, gathering inspiration on how to decorate frugally.

Her dressers and night stand are from Craigslist, and mini toile lounge chair a favorite 2nd hand find. Her beautiful ruffled bedding was just $30 from HomeGoods, along with the white furry rug she recently couldn’t live without the last time we were there. 🙂 The vintage mirror was a great flea market find, and I was able to reuse a lot of the details from her nursery as a baby on this gallery wall.

There’s so much of my daughter’s personality in here, which I LOVE.. She adores anything pink, a big fan of ruffles, also loves elephants, picture books, and is obsessed with dance. In fact this year she is on the competition team with her dance studio for the first time! I don’t think there’s anything cuter than little ones dancing 🙂

Ikea Photo Shelf

These walls were already this blue when we moved in and I think her things look really pretty in here! Today we put up this fun white shelf from Ikea, I think it’s meant to hold picture frames, but picture books look so cute on it! If she had more room I’d do a whole wall with these shelves! So cute with the books..
The photo below is her very first tutu from her one year old photo shoot on the left. I spray painted an old frame pink and hung the tutu inside, above her bed. I just couldn’t part with it and love this idea to incorporate it in her room!

Thanks so much for stopping by my little one’s girly room today! So much thought and love was put into this tiny space and I’m glad to be able to share it with you and to document it for my sweet girl. Here she is below at her first dance recital this summer. Time is flying by and I am hanging on to these special memories 🙂
