Love, Love, Love: A DIY Valentine’s Day

February 6th, 2009 admin

Valentine’s Day (or Singles Awareness Day as some call it) is only a week away, so you’d better get started on your DIY-ing! Remember, you don’t have to have a boyfriend or girlfriend to enjoy the day there are a lot of people in your life who need some love! Send a card off to your BFF, your mama, or anyone else who could do with some more construction paper hearts in their life. (And ladies, if you don’t have a date may I recommend gathering some girls for some Jane Austen movies and a date with Ben and Jerry?)

Now on to the DIY-ing!

Rice Krispie Treat “Kisses.” These may possibly be the most adorable Valentine ever–Rice Krispie treats shaped like Hershey’s kisses, complete with the foil wrapper! I’d suggest involving a little chocolate, too–maybe a candy coating? Mmm.

Also try:

Felt ‘I Love You’ Book. Got a lot to say? Maybe more than will fit on a Hallmark card? Whip up one of these little books to share with your sweetie and fill it up with Reasons I Love You.

Also try:

Valentine’s Mobile. If you want easy and cute in one fell swoop, this sweet little mobile is your dream date. All you need is some scissors, paper, glue, and string.

Also try:

lots of LOVE
