Valentine’s Day is probably one of my favorite holidays to celebrate. It comes right after my birthday so I always feel like it’s another excuse to treat myself. The holiday also has all of my favorite things: hearts, pink, red, more hearts, friendship, oh and love (duh). I wanted to share some quick DIY craft ideas in case you’re in a rush to send out gifts to your favorite people.
A handmade card is such a simple touch that really goes a long way. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy – you can use what you have around your house or make a quick trip to the craft store. I love to decorate blank cards with stickers, handwritten notes and scrapbook embellishments. As a thrifty shopper (I get it from my mama), I always look for the $1 bin or sale items. Next time you see a stack of blank cards for sale, pick those up! You never know when they’ll come in handy.
