1. Create Valentine’s Day Cards with Stuff You Already Have Around the House!
Have some old matches, candles or miscellaneous puzzle pieces? Put your creative juices to work and create a fun Valentine’s Day card with odd and ends around the house. Throw it all together with some glue and write a cute message with a marker, and you’re all set!
2. Create Valentine’s Day Keepsake Bookmarks from Paint Chip Samples
Make a Valentine’s Day bookmark card as a keepsake! Stop by the hardware store and pick up some paint samples. All you need is a heart-shaped hole punch and some ribbon to create these Valentines that will be treasured as bookmarks long after February 14. Simply punch a heart out of each color on the paint chip and complete one more punch at the top so you can add a ribbon. Write a sweet message on the back, and you’ll have a memory you can keep!

Ok.. so this is not as crafty as the other ideas. But when you’re in a bind, a personalized e-card is sometimes the best option! I love this app by RedStamp, it’s not just for Valentine’s Day cards, but cards of all sorts. I find it super useful for quick thank you notes and very handy for any last minute birthdays. They have a great assortment of cards which can all be personalized. You can write your own message and even upload pictures to insert into them.
I hope you found these crafty ideas helpful! Let me know what you’re planning for your special someone this Valentine’s day!
