diy project: valentine’s day DIY video from tiger in a jar

by Kate Pruitt

Nothing makes my heart go pitter-patter quite like an adorable handmade valentine . . . that moves! Matt and Julie are the husband-and-wife team behind the creative studio Tiger in a Jar. This “Valentine’s Day Cakes” DIY video is just one of several amazing film projects they’ve completed recently, and if you’re looking for some inspiring creativity to brighten your day, you should definitely check out all the Tiger in a Jar movies here.

Matt and Julie specialize in party planning, film making, and hunting down awesome vintage. I also like to think of them as being arbiters of wit, fun and good taste in general. The craft and quality of their films is top notch to be sure, but it’s the clever, original narratives that keep me watching over and over. They never fail to make me smile, and that’s exactly what I want from a Valentine’s project. Thanks for sharing, Matt + Julie! — Kate
