Love Notes Scavenger Hunt DIY


I couldn’t resist posting this love notes project (I know – DIY posts two days in a row?!) because today is Jeff and I’s anniversary. We’ve been together for seven years now / married for three.

This year, we decided not to exchange gifts, and instead go to a nice lunch. But one of the things we’ve done in the past, which has been a big hit, is a scavenger hunt for special occasions with little notes, riddles, etc. It is always really fun. So I thought this idea for Likes & Loves Notes would be perfect for today.

I recycled the “Likes & Loves” page  from a mini notebook that came with an Anthro gift card I received. And then I added some metallic gold washi tape to the top, wrote a couple of things that I like and love about my hubby on each card, stuck them in mini envelopes, and hid them around the house.

If you need a template for mini envelopes, there’s one here that I really like.

Hope you’ll try this the next time you want to show your sweetie a little love. If you need ideas for where to hide your love messages, here are a few:

Underneath the pillows on the couch…

Behind his favorite painting….

Or in a stack of books…

Have you ever done a scavenger hunt before?

My boyfriend just asked me to marry him this weekend, and he sent me on a scavenger hunt like this before the proposal 🙂 🙂

Happy anniversary Brittni – being together for seven years really is something to celebrate. I love the scavenger hunt idea; it’s a really nice thing to do – very personal (plus it does sound like a lot of fun)! Have a beautiful day celebrating your love!
