DIY: Valentine's Day Card!

We don't really celebrate Valentine's day as a huge thing, but i personally love the euphoria and the thought of letting your partner know of how much you love them. Yes, it's symbolized with all advertised chocolate, cards, flowers that keeps popping out everywhere. What if i told you that people would appreciate a handmade gift even with the smallest effort rather than a last-minute chocolate bar?

The idea came late at night when i was actually tidying up. I had all these tiny objects scattered, and i thought of a cheesy pun about the lighter. I got my idea pad and started working on some concepts! 
This is perfect, not only for Valentine's day when people makes you feel obliged to go the extra mile for your partner, but whenever you want to make 'em happy and loved. It would be great if you found an object that reminds you of him/her.

What you need:
1. Colored A4 paper (card stock would work better)
2. Scissors
3. Rope
4. Glue
5. Watercolor paint
5. Any item

1. Cut paper accordingly in two  different sizes (be bold with your colors!)
2. Glue them together
3. Place your object in the middle
4. Punch holes on the side and tie a rope
5. Draw anything you like!

Pretty simple and quick. I managed to do this under 15 minutes and in the middle of the night. Good luck on trying your own version :)
