celebrate love today and always!

happy love everyone!  i thought i'd share what i made for my love for valentine's day.  hopefully it will inspire those of you who are tired of v-day cards from walgreens and red construction paper hearts. i made lucky stars and wrote love poems, song lyrics, and quotes inside!

IMG_7846i listed some sources for good poems and quotes below but you could always write the typical "candy heart messages" in yours if you wish.  click here for some really good instructions on lucky star folding.

These lucky stars are known to have special meaning and the meaning can be tied to how many are given or received...

1 star: The only one 2 stars: Happy Couple 55 stars: Love you with no regrets 99 stars: May the friendship/love lasts forever 365/366 stars: Whole year blessing 520 stars: I love you 999 stars: Endless love

it is also said that if you gift 1,000 of these stars to someone their wish will come true!  i think just a few of these guys would make anyone happy though.
