diy idea: valentine’s day crafts

by Grace Bonney

with valentine’s day right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about ways to celebrate the special people in your life (if you haven’t already). i’m a fan of handmade gifts, especially when budgets are tight, and these ideas from twig & thistle are just perfect. emily at wide open spaces sent over their first idea (which she saw on rachel best’s site), which is a free valentine’s day design you can download and print onto a paper bag to house v-day baked goods. i don’t know many people who don’t enjoy a good brownie or cookie so this would be a great idea for anyone looking to bake their way into their loved one’s heart. click here for the free tutorial at twig and thistle.

twig and thistle also posted a free download for a v-day pie box- which i think is such a fun idea. they listed a recipe for making a delicious apple pie, too- what’s not to love? so click here to check out their pie tutorial and start cooking.
