Friday Front Page: Valentine's Day Paper Crafting

Valentine's Day has got to be the biggest paper craft holiday. Who didn't make a doily card or coupon for "one-free-hug" as a kid? Even as a grown up big kid, I think that paper crafting is a great way to express the sweet sentiments of Valentine's Day. Here are some stellar examples of paper crafts made with extra love.
1 - "Be Mine" Vintage Inspired Download-able Banner by Elles Studio  - Such a cute project, especially for those with limited time (like yours truly.)
2 - Vintage Paper Wreath with Crown Heart Art by White Serenade - A totally unique and stunning use of vintage sheet music.
3 - Retro Valentine Cup Cake Toppers by Joosy Card Co - Mixing two of my favorite things: cup cakes and vintage stationary.
4 - Hand Cut Heart Card by Crafts Cafe - Part of a great anatomically inspired series of cards.
5 - Lazer cut Valentine Cameo by Vector Cloud - I love how delicate this necklace is. A total conversation piece.
6 - Handmade Crepe Paper Garland by Bella Flower - Drape this darling garland anywhere for instant Valentine's Day flair.
7 - Squirrel and Acorn Heart Card by cabin + cub - Graphically stunning and so whimsical.
8 - Little Pouch of Kiss and Hug Coupons by Tracy B Designs - I love the oldie-timey look of these coupons.

Thanks to all these great crafters for letting me feature their creations! If you need even more Valentines day goodies check out the Etsy Showcase for Valentine's Day.

If you can't tell already, I'm starting a new weekly feature here at Made Right Guide. The Friday Front Page will feature handmade sellers who making great and inspiring products. If you'd like to get featured, please contact me. I'd love to see whacha got.
