Me and my boyfriend didn’t really want to make a big deal out of Valentine’s Day, especially since we’re still both in job hunt mode. I decided to look to Pinterest for some DIY card designs. Here is the front of the card I made:
The paper heart was inspired by this love note pin. The skittles represent a chapter in the beginning of our relationship. Before we dated, when we had just started talking, I was eating a pack of Skittles and told him I hated the green ones. I also blurted out that I would love the boy who would eat my green Skittles. He told me he liked green Skittles. It’s funny because we had not even thought of each other as date-able material at that point but it’s one of our first memories as friends.
The front of the card was an idea from this pin.
It looks simple enough but harder to execute than it looks. I love thought put into DIY gifts. Sure fancy gadgets would be nice but those are for Christmas and birthdays. If you are one of those people who complain about Valentine’s Day being too commercialized than get off your ass and make something.
The rest of our day was also pretty DIY and crafty, but I’ll tell you about that tomorrow.
