We’re blessed to have such amazing Makers to work with here at Michaels. They’re out there making and creating away and I just love seeing all of the lovey-dovey, heart-filled, sparkly, pink and red Valentine’s Day crafts that they’re working on.

Ruby over at Cakies Blog shared this easy tutorial on how to make a no-sew felt bunting to decorate your home. It’s genius! I don’t full-out decorate for every holiday, but adding a simple bunting like this to your door or mantel really adds a sweet touch.

Handmade Valentines

Nothing says love like a handmade Valentine. Flowers and chocolates have their place on this love-filled holiday, but there is just something so special and meaningful when you give something from the heart.

Card making can seem daunting, but honestly, it’s really very simple! You can choose blank card and envelope packs or even make your own. Layer different papers, use stamps, markers and embellishments to add details. The possibilities are endless! Here are a few handmade valentines to get you inspired:

Mason Jar Hearts CardMason Jar Hearts Card

Layers of cardstock and paper doilies make this card extra sweet. Not to mention the conversation heart stamps in pretty pastels.

Simply Said ValentineSimply Said Valentine

The paper used on this card was already colored with a soft pink gradient. All we did was add the sweet message. Think you have 2nd grade penmanship? No worries! There’s a pattern you can trace on the project page.

String Art HeartString Art Heart

Get tangled up in love with this String Art Heart! It’s really fairly self explanatory. Even I could make this one!

Watercolor Heart Cardwatercolor heart card

Watercolor is so on trend right now, so this one is really my favorite. The beauty of watercolor paints is the way the colors blend together and give you different results every time. So practice on a few hearts using multiple shades of paint until you get one that you love. Then just trim your heart out and adhere it to cute cardstock!

XOXO Love CardXOXO Card

This classic card is 3-dimensional fun. I love the way the heart pops out at you. The twine bow is also a special touch.
