Handmade + Heartfelt: Nuts About You!

With Valentine's Day just a few days away, I figure it might be helpful to share a few of the handmade gifts that I've exchanged with Kevin over the years. The great thing is that all of these can be made in just a couple of hours, with just a few supplies. So if you've put off making something special for your honey, there's still time to whip up something handmade + heartfelt!

Kevin and I were married in the summer of 2009. For Valentine's Day that year, I made this squirrely duo from a free pattern designed by Lisa at Little Acorn. All you need is a craft knife, a couple pieces of scrapbook paper, spray adhesive and a frame. {Check out Lisa's other adorable bushy-tailed design.}

I added a little banner to mark our special year.

A nice frame provides the finishing touch

I'll be back a little later with another Valentine's Day craft that can be whipped up in no time at all!

What are you giving your sweetheart this year?
