♥ (day 2)...

handmade valentines
20 handmade valentines in 20 days...day 2. I was thinking about these when I made these military medallion-inspired pins. I used ribbon and wood to make them. There's a pin back on each, but I think they'd make cute gift toppers...you know, if sporting a medallion isn't really your thing. The winner gets both! Good luck, valentines!
♥,
Abbey

I don't know why I love medals so much, maybe because I didn't win any when younger?? who knows but these are adorable. I love the wood.

These are lovely, they'd go perfectly on my boyfriends uniform (not too sure what the RAF would say) and I'm always telling him he should get a special medal for looking after me.
Cheesy but true.

LOVE! I've wanted to try my hand at making some medal-y version, too. So great!

Meagan said...

I'm absolutely obsessed with the military trend going on right now. Sadly, though, I can't seem to afford much (poor college student stereotype and all), nor can I find any of those beautiful double breasted coats that don't make my currently large chest look even larger.

So, in other words, I LOVE these.
I may just have to make some of my own.

Patty said...

Sweet! I'd wear them proudly!

So cute! I have two old band medals I found at an antique store in IL and they are my favorite pins to wear. You can see them here:
