Sometimes Chicago weather is my best crafting inspiration. It’s just too cold in Chicago to go to the craft store and buy cute Valentine’s Day stickers and markers so I’m making it work with what I home. I had fun making these recycled Christmas cards from magazines so I thought I’d give it a go for DIY Valentine’s Day cards too.
