This Valentine's present never gets old because it changes everytime I make it! This is a simple project you can do for your boyfriend, hubby, kids, heck even your kids can make it for their sweethearts! Here are the steps to making a sweet Valentine's gift from the heart, and yes it is a book type thing.

Step 1: Materials and Links =^^=


~ Hole Puncher (3-hole punch)
~ Scissors (safety scissors if you are working with a child please!)
~ Ribbon or string (any color will do, if you want to get really festive use red or pink, if it's xmas use red and green, etc.)
~ glue or tape (i find that glue works better)
~ Coloring/Drawing Supplies (markers, crayons, pencils, etc.)
~ An assortment of paper, around the same size if you wish.
~ Construction paper (2 of one color you are going to use.)
~Various cut-outs or drawings (you could even draw them yourself, I drew some and got a few pictures from the links at the bottom == as well as a few from a cheap coloring book)
~ An imagination (can't forget that now can we?)

great :) I have a folder filled with sweet texts shared between me and my BF :) <br>*fav*
the animals on the front are adorable!<br />
wow thank you so much i was wondering fo a nice present :D<br />
!!!!! WHERE DID YOU GET THOSE PLATES?!!!!! WE HAVE THE SAME ONES! Either from california, Germany, or Korea... I must know where you got them... the design is on ALL of our plates... last picture forsize comparison.
I think my parents got them either in the philippines or korea, so my guess is we have the same plates xD That's sooooo weird! xD My parents have this whole set of them =O_O=<br/>
she just said they are in walmart and k-mart too... uh, maybe not a bid coincidence xD
haha its no problem xD
sweet. My guess is it could be either place. Korea and the phillipines are pretty close, so probably could be either place. wait, my mom said she bought them in germany... hmm...
That is very cute.
Thanks for this idea!!!
You're very welcome! :D
are you a guy?
I'm 99% she's a female. Mostly because of her name, profile, and drawings.
Thanks for clarifying before I got here =<sup></sup>= lol<br/>
And the picture of her hand...
No megapun13, I am a female, hence my profile picture lol =<sup></sup>= <br/>
Umm...in light of the other comments. This is an awesome instructable. I would love to get a gift like this any day.
Thanks for the comment! =<sup></sup>= My guy LOVES it when I do artsy stuff for him like this, I just thought the idea would make more people happy =<sup></sup>=<br/>
