DIY- Valentines- hearts and hugs.

Here is a quick and easy Valentine's Day idea.  I do look forward to Valentine's Day every year, because it's the 1 of the 2 times a year that I get flowers.  Woohoo! The other time is my wedding anniversary.

Supplies:
1.  Card-stock
2.  Pipe Cleaners- I chose sparkly red
3.  Glue
4.  Scissors
5.  I found these zebra napkins at target for 50 cents. :) but you can use whatever fantasical paper type products for your valentines day vision.

Step 1.  Cut out some cute hearts.  I was able to put 4 for on a page.
Step 2.  Glue your hearts on to the card stock
Step 3.  Cut out hearts again.  AWWW aren't they adorable?
Step 4.  Fold your pipe cleaner into an adorable shape heart.
Step 5.  Cut a hole in your heart.  Do it! It might be hard but it's ok- it won't hurt your heart too much.
Step 6.  Write a nice mushy love note to your special someone.
Step 7.  Hook the heart in the hole connecting your card together.  Awww your heart is complete.
Step 8.  Enjoy that warm fuzzy feeling that love is in the air.
I was also thinking about buying my husband some socks to include with this valentines, but who doesn't love socks?  I know I sure do. :)

I love your tutorials although I don't think I'll get my act together in time to make Christian a Valentine's Day card.

I love making handmade Valentine's every year for my guy. It's the only time of the year where I get really excited to do something like that. At least it was until I started blogging - now I find it fun all of the time!
