If you really must have an occasion to write a lovely note to someone you love, then I encourage you to go find a sycamore tree and wrap your note in sycamore bark.  The texture is amazing and what a simple way to incorporate a bit of nature into your valentine giving. This tree is in our backyard and I collect mounds of bark just waiting for ways to use it. This bark is from the branches which makes it perfect for slipping in a note.  Look for bark that has a large enough opening to slip your rolled note in and tie a decorative ribbon around it. It doesn’t get much simpler than that! I also added a stamped heart on one of my pieces of bark.

Ohhh yes,  now you have to masterly craft that perfect love note!


happy sycamore bark hunting!
