DIY Valentines

Why not shake it up a little this year and show your S.O. you care with a DIY Valentine? Or, perhaps you'd rather decorate for the holiday a little with some cheap and unique DIY crafts. Either way, I've searched through craft blogs and found four incredible Valentine's Day DIY ideas. Some take a bit more time while others are super simple. Make sure to click the links to be transported to the blogs that originated the ideas for more photos and full instructions.

First up, there's the adorable rose ring that would go great with any Valentine's Day outfit.
Would you believe it's made from paperclips?!
No Joke!

Next up is a fun twist on a traditional paper Valentine. Color Me Kate created a flipbook from photos of herself embellished with heart stamps. Click here for a link to the instructions and a video of the completed flipbook in action.

Here's another great variation from the traditional paper Valentine. One of my favorites, Design*Sponge, used iron-on transfers the write a message on a spool of ribbon and then packaged it in a gorgeous antique typewriter-tape tin.

This final project might be my favorite, just because it's so simple, yet so gorgeous. And I love projects that involved magazines.
