Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and we’ve found some creative ways to make the best of both occasions on a budget. Here are some DIY ideas we think would be perfect for the transition from family to romance. Okay, that sounded wrong… but you get what we mean ^_^
Yokebakery.com featured this heart-shaped ang pao tutorial, and it’s a simple and easy way to put a smile to both CNY recipients and Valentine’s Day receivers. Also check out creator Alberta’s origami bunny tutorial… so adorable!
Ever since Martha Stewart posted up this felt fortune cookie tutorial, people worldwide have been making versions of their own for Valentine’s Day. In fact, our designer Ellie made a boxful for a hen’s night game where kinky questions were hidden in each cookie that the bride-to-be had to answer. You can pick up sheets of felt at ArtFriend in Gardens, Mid Valley or you can buy by the metre at Kamdar. Fortunes can be used for CNY, while love notes can be inserted in for Valentine’s Day. Check out Shannon Eileen’s sweet use of the cookies *here*.
And lastly, of course, a bunny!!! It’s the year of the bunny, and what better gift to give than the gift of adorable cuddliness???! I mean, c’mon… the gift that keeps giving! Surprise kids in the family with a bunny instead of an ang pao, or buy the love of your life a pair for Valentine’s Day. Sure to brighten anyone’s day!
Now that you guys have some different approaches to giving, get to it ‘coz time is running out! Psst… we could do with some bunny lovin’ in the office if you’re feeling generous *winks*.
