Precious Keepsake

Do you feel guilty throwing away all of your old cards you have received throughout the holidays over the years?? If so, this project may be for you!

Instead of throwing away Valentine's cards, love letters, etc. you have received from your man, cut them up instead! Into hearts of course :) 

Take any collection of cards and cut them into hearts of all sizes! If you happen to have any old love letters from your sweetheart those will work too! For those of you who communicate solely through email, print your "love emails" onto colored or printed paper. 

Then, place them in a shadow box customized to your liking! We can paint or antique the frame of the box and even add embellishments.

This is such a sweet project that will get your cards out of an old storage box and into a beautiful display for your home!

Other ideas:

  • Birthday Cards
  • Christmas Cards
  • Wedding/Shower Cards
  • Holiday Collection (cards from all holidays combined)

Make Your Own Mannequin

This project is a great idea for crafters who are wanting to make/sew your own clothing! Using duct tape and a pair of scissors, you can make a custom mannequin of your own body. You will then have this mannequin and your own measurements so that you can make shirts, dresses, vests, etc. for yourself! You can even be creative and use colored or printed duct tape when making your mannequin....hot pink, zebra, lime green, the options are endless! 

If you are a beginner at sewing, DON'T PANIC! We have tons of easy sewing ideas that are great starter projects. Pictured below is an infinity scarf....these are SO popular and great for the cold weather. We love to add lace for a fun, girly look! Come in today to make one for yourself, friend, mother, sister, or coworker! This project is a steal starting at only $25!!!

For those who prefer a longer scarf, check out this style! This scarf is also made from t-shirts and is priced at $30. As always, we offer a wide variety of colors. Call us at (806) 778-6845 to request a specific color before you drop by the shop!

Only 34 Days Until Valentine's Day.....

Are you tired of receiving a cheesy card, boring flowers, and an oversized box of chocolates for Valentine's Day? This holiday has become one of the most commercial days of the year!

So this year when your Sweetheart is searching for hints of what you want for the big day, send him to Pinspired! We know he has the creativity, muscles, and knowledge to make you a personal gift that will have sentimental value. We have a plethora of ideas just in case he is having trouble deciding what to make for you....

These decorative glasses are a very simple project that can be customized to your liking. What better way to celebrate your love for each other than sipping your favorite wine or champagne from these beautiful glasses?!

This gift is very personal and can be customized with any romantic quote, anniversary, or even names. Something as simple as "I Love You" would be a great phrase to use for this project. We have many different board sizes, fonts, stencils, and paint colors to choose from.

If YOU are feeling crafty, have your Valentine purchase a Pinspired gift certificate so you don't have to miss out on all the fun.

Even better, come in as a COUPLE and make something together!

Don't have a Valentine? No problem! Schedule a private party for you and your friends!
