Happy Valentine's Day! Who's ready for a super-cute Valentine's Day craft? We are loving all things miniature, and this V-Day is no different. We might express it in a tiny form, but our hearts are overflowing with love.

Sweet Valentine's Paper Craft

You can turn a boring, regular old matchbox into a sweet storage box for love notes or trinkets. All you need is a glue gun, paper, a bone folder, and scissors. If you don't know what a bone folder is, and you're a crafty person, you need one. NOW. They are a life savor when it comes to crafting with paper heavier than what you pull from your printer.

You can get fancier with hot wax and a seal as well. And maybe stick one of these fun Valentine's printables inside.
