6 Ways To A Handmade Valentines Day

Cupid’s crafty arrow struck us all they way back in December and we haven’t been able to shake that sadistic little angel since. Sure we could have fought him off with our Hallmark holiday cynicism but alas we are weak love lorn creatives that would rather make art not war. I think we managed to make something for just about everyone. Check it!

1) Burlap Valentines

Cut hearts out of burlap and add minimal Val-day accents (like red ribbon) and BLAM a you have valentine suitable for any discerning dude.

2) Burlap cloud that rains down hugs and kisses.

I was going through a burlap and plastic necklace phase but looking back on this I think I should have used Chocolate Hugs and Kisses as the rain. Ohh the lessons I’ve learned about chocolate in the last 60 days!

3) Candy Pooping Unicorn.

If you want to recreate something as kitschy as a candy pooping unicorn, I have but one recommendation: Use chocolate! I know chocolate on Valentines Day seems so cliche but learn from my mistakes people!

4) Monster of love

Proof that chocolate wins everyone over! I’m sure the cute little monster didn’t hurt either.

5) I Love Hue Valentine

The perfect Punny Valentine for all of those creative people that spend their days in Adobe Illustrator or obsessing over paint chips or both (in my case).
