Easy Valentine's Day Projects: 4 Chic Crafts to Create

Surprise your Valentine with one of these simply chic projects.

Bejeweled Hearts Valentine

Create a special card for your someone special this Valentine's Day. Print our exclusive valentine onto card stock and cut out design, leaving a one-inch border on all sides. Cut two parallel slits in the top border of the card with a razor blade that are wide enough to allow ribbon to be threaded through. Slide two coordinating pieces of ribbon through slits and tie. Finally, embellish hearts with self-adhesive rhinestones.

Heart-Shaped Cupcake Toppers

A homemade treat will taste even sweeter when topped with a playful love note. Print these hearts onto card stock or handmade paper. Cut out heart shapes with decorative-edge scissors and add a message to your valentine or their initial. Embellish with self-adhesive rhinestones for a glam touch. Finally, tape a toothpick or small dowel to the back of the heart and insert into cupcake.

Love Birds Valentine

This charming valentine is a snap to make. Just print our exclusive valentine onto card stock and cut out design leaving a one-inch border on all sides. Glue a bit of ribbon to the top border of card and stitch on a button.

"Sugared" Heart Banner

These "sugared" hearts look good enough to eat! To create banner, print this PDF onto card stock and cut out hearts. Lay the hearts on a flat, disposable surface, such as newspaper or a plastic dropcloth, and coat the patterned side with spray adhesive. While the glue is still wet, dust each heart with crystal glitter and allow to dry. Gently tap hearts to remove the excess glitter and glue them to grosgrain ribbon. The banner can be as long as you wish by adding more hearts, and the hearts can be attached so the banner hangs either vertically or horizontally.
