Craftbits has an easy last minute Valentine’s gift idea. Make a speech bubble love sign.
Here’s a quick valentine to whip up. I have a lot of googly eyes for some reason, but you could just as easily print on eye.
After seeing this comic on Hana’s World and then finding a pattern for the Giving Bunny, I decided to combine them and make fencing giving bunnies since my kids have started fencing.
The weapons are made from Sculpey. The masks are from window mesh I bought at the hardware store for another project. I just cut ovals out of felt and mesh and sandwiched the mesh between the felt.
For a fun project that would also make great little gifts, check out Ms. Toi’s tutorialon making lipstick using crayons, castor oil and shea butter. You might even try adding a little essential oils to your blend. Just make sure the oils are safe to use on lips.

Irrelephant has a tutorial for a wonderful gift idea. Use gold leaf for a Silhoutte instead of regular old black. Pop one in a nice frame and you’ll have an amazing, personal gift.

To go along with my son’s ninja costume, I decided to make some throwing stars. I followed this tutorial on WikiHow. I used copy paper and added a layer of foil on top to make them more realistic.
Minieco made these fantastic looking candle holders using paper and an accordion fold. I thought they would be perfect jack o’ lanterns.
Not hard once you figure out the folds, but you’ll definitely want to print out the template Minieco created and follow the tutorial to make things a lot easier.
PaperMama has what you need to make this fantastic Halloween terrarium. How great would this look on your table? Maybe add an LED tea light for even more spookiness.
Grosgrain has a great tutorial on printing fabric on your home printer. I can’t wait to try this!
