DIY Valentine's at Purl Bee

If you and your child plan on eschewing traditional, boring Valentine cards (How many Dora's cards does one child really need?) why not be crafty and make your own. The handmade cards we found at the Purl Bee blog are so sweet, you'll never buy premade cards again.

Learn how to make these delightful crocheted valentine cards and these lovely embroidered cards, as well.

Why give a card, when you can give a pin? These gorgeously cute felt pins are easy to make, but look as though you put a lot more effort. All you need is some felt, pinking shears and basic sewing skills will do.

Finally, the sewn valentine cards are a great way to use scraps of fabrics and pieces of thread.

All of these Valentine's are sure to make any recipient fall head over heels for you.
