"Heart in Your Hands" Card

Valentine's Day is a fun but stressful time for a lot of people.  Boys are particularly stressed because shopping for girls can be very difficult.  Cards can be cheesy, but who isn't on Valentine's Day?  This card is really easy and can mean a lot, make a heart out of your own hand shapes! The steps are easy to follow. 

Hey, if a fancy dinner doesn't fit into your budget, maybe you could treat your special someone to lunch at a BYU Dining Services restaurant.  An ice cream from the BYU Creamery or something from one of our Jamba Juice location might also be a good way to sweeten the day.  It would certainly provide a good opportunity to surprise your valentine with your handmade card.  Who knows, maybe Captain Literally would literally give you a high five for that one!

1. Fold a paper in half

2. Trace your hand on the paper with your thumb and index finger touching the folded line.

3. Cut out your hand.

4. But be sure to not cut through the folded part with your thumb and index finger.

5. Unfold your paper and you have a hand-heart card. Write a cute little message and you are done!

Valentine Cupcakes

By: Amberly Asay

Valentine's day is practically here and it is time to get ready for it!  If you are like me, you don't have very much time to be super crafty.  This little craft will dress up your cupcakes, and everyone will love them.  Simply take a bamboo skewer (or in my case a pipe cleaner) cut a feather out of paper and glue it to your stick.  Then put your "arrow" in your cupcake, and you have a cupid inspired treat.
