Homemade Valentines

Feb 09, 2017

It’s always a treat to get a Valentine from a loved one, a girlfriend, a boyfriend, a buddy or even your little brother. And what makes it’s even nicer is when the Valentine is homemade! Here are some creative ideas for adding a special touch for your special someone, or your little brother.

Stamp Your Heart Out Valentines:

This is a super easy and homey way to make lots of Valentine Cards and it all starts with toilet paper, so you know it’s a keeper.

All you need is: cardboard toilet paper roll, tape, paint and paper for your cards and envelopes, cardstock works best, but printer paper or construction paper work too.

  1. Indent the cardboard roll so that it forms a heart.
  2. Tape the top bumps of the heart so that the shape stays.
  3. Dip your stamp in paint and stamp your paper.

You can do single hearts or an entire pattern. Stamp your envelope, stamp a large piece of craft paper and use it as wrapping paper for gifts, write messages with the hearts. Get creative!

Heart Felt Pouch:

Just as iconic to Valentine’s Day as hearts and flowers is chocolate. And with the addition of the handmade pouch you can give your sweetie some sugar they can enjoy right away and a heart felt gift they can use long after the chocolate is gone.

You will need: felt, yarn, crafting needle (which is just a larger needle than the regular sewing needle), button and CHOCOLATE!

  1. Cut the felt into two identical hearts. You can make these as big or small as you like depending on what you want to put inside.
  2. Starting from the top left corner sew the edges of the two hearts together. I like the look of the over-the-edge stitch or the overlock stitch, but a straight stitch would look just as good. Make sure to leave a gap that is big enough for your button.
  3. Sew the button into the inside piece of felt. Depending on the buttonhole size you may want to use thread rather than the yarn.
  4. Cut a slit on the other piece of felt the diameter of the button.
  5. Fill the pouch with chocolates, button it up and deliver it to your sweetie!

If you’re low on chocolate then feel free to fill the pouch with other little gifts. You could fill the pouch with potpourri and give a sweet smelling gift, little trinkets, beads… whatever you want!

Paper Roses:

Ok, so we have cards, hearts, chocolate all we need now is Flowers. This is a really simple way to make some flowers that will last long after the 14th.

You will need: Paper (cardstock preferably, construction works too), Scissors, a nail and glue.

  1. Cut out a circle. A 3.5 inch circle makes a 1.5 inch across rose.
  2. Cut wavy lines on the outside of the circle.
  3. Continue to cut wavy lines spiraling to the center of the circle.
  4. Leave a small circle of paper in the center.
  5. With a nail start rolling the end tail of the outside of your circle. Once the thing takes a shape that you can hold on to you can take out the nail. Continue to roll all the way to the center circle. You’re going to want to hold on tight so the thing doesn’t unfurl.
  6. When the thing is entirely curled let it loose just a little to make the flower fuller.
  7. Put a dab of glue on the little circle there and press it into the spiral. Hot glue works best here because it dries so quickly.

Attach a stem to your flower, a green pipe cleaner or rolled up construction paper, or attach your rose to a gift, a pin, a card, whatever strikes your fancy!

(So, along with being a fanfiction of  The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time , this story is an attempt at a [character] x reader thing, with Duana representing the reader. It'll be Sheik x reader, but... well, you'll see how it works in the story. There'll be plenty of action and people-hitting to go 'round during it, and the buildup to the ship will be gradual. I promise that things that happen in parts 1-3 aren't necessarily terrible attempts at showing affection. I'm not sure how long it'll go, but it'll have at least ten parts of varying length. At the moment, I have four parts done, but I'll not be posting twice in a day. Feel free to voice any ideas or opinions through comments/PM! If you don't like it, I'd appreciate  constructive criticism , not a rant. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the story!) Part One A Man and a Lyre [Image courtesy of some random person on the Internet. Taken from Google Images.] Duana’s eyes snapped open. A forest. But her last memory was… of being cut into by a Thief's scimitar and falling… in the desert . Was this death? She grunted; attempted getting up. Failed. The nausea finally registered, and the trees spun about her vision. But she couldn’t go unconscious. The king’s forces could be anywhere. Duana would be easy pickings if she was unconscious and they happened to stumble upon her. A second attempt at rising succeeded, and she tightly gripped a tree, sagging against it as the spinning intensified, and she nearly vomited. Slowly, it faded, and she became alert again. She stood upright, looking around; scanning for signs of movement. Her sharp, red eyes at first saw nothing, then noticed a slight trembling of some undergrowth. Duana tensed, but knew she wouldn’t put up much of a fight--regardless of whether she actually fought or decided to run. Promptly, the swaying increased, and then the bushes parted… and a figure came into sight, heading straight towards Duana… ...with the red eye and tear on the navy blue tunic he wore. His eyes were also red, and his ears were pointed. The symbol was the symbol of Duana’s own race; a people trained in shadow and dedicated to protecting the royal family as well as their country, but who had failed miserably in it. Duana gasped in relief, releasing the tension. “I was so paranoid that you were someone working for Ganondorf….” The young man, a fellow Sheikah, tilted his head and frowned. “Ganondorf? He was exiled two decades ago.” “Wha…?” “Nabooru, Sage of Spirit, is now temporarily serving as the Gerudo queen until the next male is born. How do you not know this?” “I….” He peered at her. “What tribe are you from?” “Kakariko.” For a few seconds, he remained staring silently, his face unreadable. “What is your name? And who is your father?” “Duana. My father is Alechjo.” “Alechjo… he doesn’t have a daughter named Duana.” “What… what tribe are you from, then? What is your name?” He paused, drawing himself from thought. “Sheik, son of Geron, of Kakariko. You seem discombobulated. Are you alright?” Duana smiled. Her lips parted to say something, but another wave of nausea slammed into her. It felt like a punch, and she lurched, but the tree kept her upright. “I’m sure you’re not alright,” Sheik firmly said. As he dug through a pouch on his belt, Duana then noticed the lyre peeking around him, held in place on his back by a leather strap running across his chest in a diagonal line. Some of his blond hair escaped a ponytail a few inches long, hanging around his face as it was bent to see inside the pouch.
