Single Serve Cup Coffee Valentine Featuring Java Factory Roasters

I’m a free agent when it comes to coffee.  I enjoy different flavors and brands, and so single serve cups make the most sense for me when it comes to brewing coffee.

I know I’m not unique in my love for coffee – and if someone, anyone really, gave me a Valentine with some Java attached to it, well let’s just say they’d be counted as pretty special in my book.  

And when I recently received a 40-count variety box of Java Factory Single Serve Cups, I had a momentous break through of the cutest Valentine ever for the coffee loving male squeeze in your life.

DIY Felt Valentine’s Chair Back Envelopes

DIY Felt Chair Back Envelopes

Last year Family Fun magazine had a basic tutorial for making these chair-back envelopes for special deliveries leading up to Valentine’s Day.  I thought they were so cute and thought I would make one and share it with you on the blog. 

I was talking to a friend about them and she told me that Pottery Barn sold them a few years ago (shows you how long I’ve been out of the loop on things like this since my daughter is older!).  I did a Google search and sure enough these adorable yearly decorations are Pottery Barn loveliness, but also pretty costly.

Wrapped Valentine’s Day Jars

DIY Wrapped Jars

I have a bunch of materials in my home that are just waiting for crafting.  Much to my husband’s chagrin I save a lot of things that I think I can recycle or re-purpose.  Time however is something I don’t have as much of as I do materials, lol! 

I had some leftover jute twine from the DIY Texas Wreath I made last month.  I was trying to figure out what to do with it when I spied some empty gravy jars under my sink.
