Holy moly, it's that time again! Wasn't it just New Year's Day?

Anyway. I thought I'd compile a bunch of Valentine-related tutorials I've done here for your crafty pleasure:

Top row, from left to right

• Here's a little video how-to for a pretty stand-up gift-topper. It uses plastic canvas. Of course.

• This button-embellished notebook cover is sized for standard small spiral notebooks. And if I do say so my dang self, there's a nice little trick for placing buttons precisely in there.

• …And if you need an excuse to acquire lots of felt colors, look no further than my Simple V-Day Sachet.

Bottom row, from left to right

• Turn some scrapbook paper and old magazines into these hanging hearts, which spin nicely with the air currents.

• If you have some scraps of fringe in your stash, turn them into these flowery greeting cards in just a few minutes.

• …Or, get a little more detailed and create a wallet shrine filled with pictures and ephemera for your loved one.


Oh, and I couldn't resist including this little bonus: a necktie heart brooch.

Happy Crafting!


Ooh, I especially love that tie brooch and button cover. :)
