DIY Valentine's Day Card


I love song lyrics.  When I listen to a song I love it more for the lyrics than for the melody.  This Valentine's Day I decided to take one of the lyrics to Katy Perry's song and put it on a  DIY Valentine's Day card for my husband. I also made the card into a "notebook" because the lyrics are talk about adolescence.


Cut out the "notebook" cover from a gift box.

 Line the inside of the notebook with some wrapping paper and cut notebook paper to size.

Sew the notebook paper onto the cover.

Write a little love note.
Sew a couple of buttons on the front and back.  Stamp your favorite lyrics onto the front and tie with bakers twine.

  1. Too cute! Too bad Katy Perry probably won't be enjoying as good a Valentine's Day this year as you will be. Ahh, life amongst the stars.
