I'm a sucker for handwritten letter and notes and Valentine's Day is just the perfect occassion to give them. Only this time, I'm talking about miniatures. I'm talking itty-bitty love notes in mini envelopes. And the best part is you can make them for your entire family, not to mention friends. Just customise them with different kinds of love quotes and love notes.

You'll be surprised by how simple these mini envelopes are to make. Just follow these steps and you'll have a bunch ready in a jiffy.

love quotes and valentines day gifts for him

I really like these:

All of me, loves all of you.

I love us.

My heart is wherever you are.

Home is you.

(For kids) I love you in the morning
I love in the noon
I love in the evening
And underneath the moon. 

And if one of your loved ones is far away from you, this French quote hits the right note.

Tu me manques (you are missing from me).

I would never have thought it was so easy to do envelopes! so pretty and so much nicer than the ones you buy.

I know, this is one of the easiest way to make envelopes. You can even have a print inside and the outer portion in solids. Lots of possibilities:-)
