The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


CRAFT: Valentine’s Day Card Contest!

Craft & Design

Nat writes –

Hey Crafters! We have an exciting new contest on craftzine for Valentine’s Day! It’s our “Recycle Your Heart” Valentine’s Day Card Contest where you can express your true love by creating a card made from recycled materials. Yes, that’s right. It’s time to check the cabinets, find the old fabric stash, grab yesterday’s newspaper and go through the trash bin to make a special Valentine’s Day card the way it was meant to be done! You can use and mix any type of craft you wish and don’t need to limit yourself to paper crafts. Just use your imagination. Good luck everybody!

    I love this idea- I have always thought that homemade cards have so much more meaning and the ability to be able to express what you truely feel.
    I actually have made several different types of cards on my computer and personzlized them with photos and my own greetings!
