Countdown to V-day!

I wanted to make a little advent calendar for Valentines Day and this one was pretty simple to put together!
{It just takes a little time!]
The inspiration were these little metal heart tins at Micheals.  
I then made some different sized
hearts and numbers to glue on top. 
I found some magnetic tape at the craft store and so I was able to attach magnets to each heart tin which I then put on top of a magnet board {that I had mod-podged with scrapbook paper.} I added the words, glittered them, and there you have it!
I think I am going to add some ribbon and hang it up downstairs so we can see it and do something different each day before Valentine's Day!

I will post the ideas and activities we are going to do
once we get closer to the big countdown.
