Fortunate to Have You

Show your Valentine some love with these sweet handmade card ideas. Most of our DIY Valentine's Day cards use inexpensive materials from the craft store, or maybe even use materials you already have on hand, so they're perfect for making in bulk. So whether you're making a Valentine for that special someone or for your kids' entire class, follow Cupid's arrow to these easy Valentine's Day card-making projects.

Slip some sweet sentiments into fortune cookies for a one-of-a-kind gift. Cut a piece of craft foam into a small circle, then fold it into a half moon, slip in your message, and then pinch the long ends of the half-circle together to form the fortune cookie, adding dots of glue to keep everything together. Your Valentine sure is lucky to have you!

Love Grows

HGTV contributor and DIYer Emily Fazio says, "while an unofficial poll of six-year-olds tells me that store-bought packs of cards are the way to go in the public school system, I still think our friends and family really appreciate and adore our DIY efforts." We love them, too!
