Valentine Craft Ideas - mini round up

I've been ridiculously awful about posting this week - I'm so ashamed! I cleaned up my craft room...and haven't been back. It's been a busy week. Please don't abandon me, I promise not to make a habit of it.

In fact, I'm excited to get back to some actual crafting this weekend. Sunday is the day. I've picked up my free DiGiorno's pizzas, stocked up on soda, put together a few other snacks and munchies - and now I just need to decide what to actually sit down and make.

I'm thinking Valentines, but nothing is catching my eye yet. Some type of paper project would be easiest as far as my gathering is concerned - most people will be working on cards or scrapbooking.

I'm a little intrigued by these matchbook valentines at inchmark:

The Paper Source blog has a cute tutorial for "foxy" Valentine gift bags:

Martha has relatively few things that catch my eye, sadly. I do think these "German Cones" have potential:

These tiny gift bags are also pretty cute, but would be hard to deliver/transport:

I think these quilled flowers are very cute:

Papertrey Ink is one of my favorite stamp stores, they make really cute stuff and show you how to use it. I don't have the time or budget to order any stamps, but I'm loving this little birdhouse - and it's a free downloadable template!

It's shown here as an Xmas ornament, but you could easily make it Valentine-y with some "love birds" puns and pink paper. I think this might be in the lead so far.

Anybody else have any cute Valentine ideas/plans?
