Easy DIY Valentines

About: TV Host. Glue-ru. Craftinista. Wordsmith. Dreamer. Doer. Buzz Maker. I color outside of the lines.

Use some basic craft supplies to make a bevy of beautiful Easy DIY Valentines with our video tutorial. You can find all of the things you need to make these at Target and Michaels, and you may have plenty of this stuff in your stash already!

White gel pen looks amazing on a black background and it brings simple stamped images to life. Add a little gold pen, some dimensional elements and crystals for sparkle and you'll have simply stunning Valentines for your friends, family, and significant other that look just as pretty as the ones you'd buy at the store. Best of all, they're a fraction of the cost!

We're all about inspiring you to be creative, so our tutorials are less about make this one thing and more about learn some fun techniques you can use to DIY.

Thanks so much for watching.
