The Simplicity of a Handmade Valentine

A valentine doesn't have to be complicated. It could be as simple as a couple of pieces of paper, a paper doily, and some baker's twine. I actually used little extras that had been used as packaging for items that I had purchased on Etsy -- smile for recycling -- and some bits of paper that I had left-over from other projects.

Now, heaven forbid you shouldn't already have a valentine for your special someone, but hopefully you have some little extras hanging around your house so you can quickly make a valentine. Sure, cards are nice -- and I appreciate you buying one from my SHOP -- but there's nothing quite like a handmade valentine to give to the one you love most.

Peace and love :)
