Paint samples, playing cards, sponges, sugar packets, matches are all taking up space in your kitchen and desk drawers. Think of them as an inexhaustible stock of Valentine-card-making props. Dead AAA batteries ("I get a charge out of you"), old lollipops ("I'm a sucker for you"), stray keys ("the key to my heart").
Sit yourself down and grab a pile of craft supplies―construction paper, scissors, markers, tape, X-Acto blade, large-eyed
needle and strong thread (or dental floss), doilies, ribbon saved from the last party. Don't worry about making it look perfect.
It's the message that counts.
