How did Valentine’s Day sneak up on us so fast? Our family loves to make homemade gifts and cards for friends and loved ones. Here are a few favorites:

1. A healthier version of Peppermint Patties that is so easy to make.

2. Make your own decorative stamps for cards with this simple egg carton craft.

3. A DIY Book of Love is such a sweet keepsake.

4. Kids can make their own crayons for classmates (try a heart-shaped silicon mold).

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Mom Potato follows a few blogs for inspiration. For Valentine’s Day, Molly from Charlotte’s Fancy shared a wonderful, last minute gift idea—a simple book that tells family the 12 ways they’re loved most.

You need just a few supplies from around the house to make this sweet gift, including craft paper, note paper, scissors, glue and a stapler. MP used some simple embellishments, too.

Next, we cut out the paper hearts and taped them to the flat-side of our lollipops (we found traditional, red lollipops at our local grocery store). Then CP #1 added sparkly letter stickers with her classmates’ initials to the paper hearts, and Momma Potato tied a grosgrain ribbon bow to each for a finishing touch. So easy! We can’t wait to give them to the kids at school tomorrow.
