Craft Roundup: Valentine Cards and Creations

When it comes to Valentine's Day, we tend to quickly think of cards and gifts for our children, a spouse, the kids at school, etc. But don't forget family, friends and neighbors out of the area! A handmade valentine is a welcome surprise in the mailbox. This week's roundup has ideas for simple gifts to send, including a great project being spearheaded by Etsy.com for Meals on Wheels. As you look at your valentine list, who would you like to add – and which craft suits them best?

'Thumb-Body Loves You' Valentines

I'm definitely the type of person who's more likely to play with candy conversation hearts than actually eat them! If that describes you or your kids, turn those hearts into craft supplies with this fun project by Tried & True.

DIY Wooden Polaroid Gift Set

Send a favorite photo to a grandparent or friend far from home. Sugar and Cloth uses ready-made photo frames for a small, sweet gift idea.

Special Delivery: Share Your Love 2014

Here's a Valentine's Day project with a great mission. Etsy is collecting cheery valentines to pass out to Meals on Wheels in the New York area. Submit your hard work by Feb. 3 to brighten someone's day. Want to help closer to home? Contact the Detroit Area Agency on Aging to see if they could use some love notes, too.
