Make It Yours Monday: Valentine's Day

We love customizing projects for our clients in order to put a personal touch on their events.  We realize not everyone is as crafty and creative as we are, which is why we love to share simple DIY projects with our readers when we find them.  Valentine's Day is quickly approaching and we wanted to share a couple of easy and cute DIY projects that you can make for V-Day, or any day. 

Project #1: A Little Book of Love

While this is designed to be a mini-Valentine, you could easily tweak it a bit to be suitable for any holiday or occasion.  Who wouldn't love a pocket-sized profession of love for a birthday present.  Or, how about singing the praises of your employee-of-the-month?  Basically, it doesn't have to be filled with hearts and an out-pouring of love to work. 

Check out this tutorial done by Lauren over at Lauren Makes.

Project #2: Love You Bookmarks

We love, love, love this idea.  There are a multitude of ways in which this project can be adapted to suit your occasion or event. Here's just a few we can think of off the top of our heads:
  • stocking stuffer for a book-lover
  • save the date card for a literary (or other) themed wedding
  • Valentine's Day gift
  • write a message on the back and have it double as a greeting card
  • try different cut-out shapes and messages to fit the theme of your event
  • add a favorite recipe to the back and use it as a cookbook place-marker
  • gift tags
  • use red and green fabric and make Christmas ornaments and keepsakes
  • add them to goodie bags for a child's birthday party
What about you? Let us know if you've thought of another way to incorporate these bookmarks into your event.  For a tutorial on this project, head over to mmmcrafts.
