Craft Roundup: Small Gifts that Make Big Statements

As my mom always said – and I’m betting yours did, too – “It’s not the size of the gift that matters, but the thought that counts.” While presents come in a variety of shapes and sizes, small, handmade gifts often leave a big impact on the person who receives it. Checking out Pinterest and Twitter around Valentine’s Day, we found lots of great ideas that translate into easy gift ideas to make throughout the year.

Lovely Indeed gave this set of simple office supplies a Valentine’s Day makeover, but you could apply any color scheme to make a lovely suite of handmade gifts for a neighbor, tween or favorite teacher.

DIY: Polaroid Frame Tea Bag Tags
