7 Stunning Paper Crafts for Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day is right round the corner so I’ve rounded up seven great projects that I think you will enjoy.  So get out your fun papers we’re about to get crafty.

I have had a love affair with paper ever since I was a kid. It started with a love of drawing, and soon I grew into a love for folding and cutting paper, too. I learned Origami from a Japanese exchange student.  I made cards and paper dolls with my mom.  I cut and framed silhouettes and Scherenschnitte designs for gifts. Now I make paper snowflakes and banners with my kids. 

One of the things I love most about paper crafts is that they don’t have a big price tag. No fancy supplies are necessary, tons can be done with just paper and scissors.  This makes paper crafts one of the most frugal crafts out there. 

So if you’ve been on the lookout for a frugal craft, one you can even do with your kids. Try your hand at some of these beautiful paper projects.
