Craft Roundup: Valentine Projects and a Pinewood Derby Twist
'Tis the season, right? Wear your heart on your sleeve – and show your Boy Scout pride – with these fun crafts, from valentine bags to mini derby trophies.
A lot of valentine ideas this week with a little pinewood derby inspiration thrown in for good measure. Valentine's Day is quickly approaching, so it's time to put those thinking caps on and get to work – crafty work, that is! This week, we dug up some tutorials for a handmade valentine cards and bags, tasty s'more valentine treats and nifty heart-speckled paper roll owls. And, of course, some pint-size pinewood derby trophies for a photo finish.

I think it's safe to say a lot of us love s'mores – that's why we're always wanting more! Simply Klassic Home has a clever idea for a sweet valentine with a free printable to go along with it.
You don't have to spend a lot of money to make some fun valentine decorations. Happy Clippings shows you how to turn empty paper rolls into adorable valentine decor.
