More DIY Valentines


I know we're cutting it a bit close to Valentines Day, so I apologize this post is borderline late, but I thought I would share it anyways because these cards don't have to be used just as Valentines! Thanks to my love for this glorious holiday, and inspiration from people all around me, I set off to make some Valentine's this weekend to send lots of love to my friends and family. (For those of you that think that Valentine's Day just has to be a holiday dedicated to boyfriends/girlfriends and husbands/wives, you're wrong! Use it as an opportunity to spread love to all the people around you).

Turns out, these were way easier to make than I thought, and now I have literally become obsessed with wanting to make Valentines and cards at all times. All it took was a trip to Michaels, around $20, and I had enough to make at least 24+ Valentines. All I bought was brown paper card stock (a 24 pack with cards and envelopes), glitter tape in 2 colors, adhesive hearts, glitter, sequin and red paper, and then I already had the twine (also from Michaels), glue, scissors, and gold sharpie. I've included a few examples below, but really the sky is the limit with the amount of things you can do. Even just sticking one adhesive red glittery heart in the middle of a card looked cute to me! 

Hope these give you some ideas for last minute Valentines you can make, or homemade cards when  you're feeling crafty and like you want to save a little bit of money. Have fun making them, and I'd love to see pictures of the ones you come up with too! (Tag me in instagram, or twitter if you can!) and have such a very wonderful day!!
