Love and creative reuse is in the air!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it is time to get your friends, family, and loved ones a gift for the holiday! The average person will spend around $102 dollars on Valentine's day, why not save your money and create a gift instead!
Instead of buying an expensive premade card, you can make your own Valentine's day card. Here is a creative idea and all it takes is an old magazine that can be found in almost any household.
Another idea that will save you at least $60 dollars is to make your own bouquet of flowers. These flowers can last forever and they can be made out a number of things like paper and tissue paper. Better yet, The I.D.E.A Store is offering a workshop, “Alternative Flowers for Valentine’s day,” that will allow you to make flowers out of non-recyclable materials like different kind of plastics.

Or you can try this cute, but simple project, all it takes an old light bulb, wire and some creativity. The directions can be found at Design*Sponge.
For the kids, they can make a Valentine's Day card holder with practically any container, like a shoe box or a coffee can. Then, they can decorate with items that can be found at The I.D.E.A Store like paper, ribbon, and stickers! For inspiration, click here.

Happy Valentine's Day!
