As a college student, I was looking for an inexpensive, easy decoration for Valentines Day and came up with this idea.  Not only is it easy & inexpensive, when Valentines Day is over, it simply folds up neatly and stores in a envelope for next year!

All you need are a few scrapbooking supplies, a little time and some of your favorite "love" quotes or poems, so let's get started!!
