Valentine DIY Inspiration

It’s always nice to spend a bit of time making people feel special, and what better way to show you care than crafting. With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, here’s a round-up of my favourite valentine’s crafts from around the web. Many of them are Printables too – bonus!

‘You Rule’ DIY Valentine Present

The other week I came across this cute Valentine design on Pinterest and thought I’d give it a go! All you need is some paper or card, scissors (or a guillotine), a craft knife, and of course a ruler!

After buying a cheap metal rule from Amazon, I designed a ‘You Rule’ sleeve in InkScape before printing it, trimming it, and making the two slits with a craft knife for the ruler to slot through.

Like so! After making the ‘basic’ edition, I also experimented with a double-sided beast with a different message on the back. You can play with whatever words you want.

I went with ‘You Rule’ and ‘<— I love you this much —>’ but you can be as cheesy as you like!

Double-Sided Edition:

The double-sided edition just requires a bit of Pritt Stick to seal the deal. It’s that easy!
