1. Handmade Paper Valentines I love Ellen’s photo tutorial of how to make cookie-cutter handmade paper hearts. I’ve always wanted to try my hand at making paper but it always seemed too complicated. Here she breaks it down into 9 simple steps.
2. Custom Fingerprint Art I have fallen in love with Man Made DIY–it’s an awesome blog geared more towards “manly” crafts. This fingerprint art is a little involved but definitely an original gift idea.
3. Valentine Rocks Not only are these painted rocks super-easy to make (find rocks, scribble with paint pens–voila!–instant valentine), but Abbey from Aesthetic Burst is also sharing 20 valentines in 20 days–and gave away each of the unique valentines she created!
4. Color-In Valentines And the simplest and cheapest of valentines–free printables on Prudent Baby! Honestly, this is the project I did with my toddler and preschooler this week. It’s all about keeping it simple (and you wouldn’t believe how complicated this project ended up being with a 2 and 3-year-old!).
I’m looking forward to celebrating V-day and hope to share some pics with you next week–how will you be celebrating the loved ones in your life?
