Valentine’s Day is Coming!

It may not seem like it (there is a lot going on in the world), but Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Despite stores being filled with the colors of red and pink, hearts and candy, a lot of people seem neglect this holiday until the last minute.

While I’m not really a Valentine’s Day ‘person’ I do enjoy making Valentine’s Day crafts. I still aim to give Valentine’s out every year. Since I’m deployed this year, I’ll have to either get creative or go with basic Valentine’s Day cards designed for school classrooms. 

Last year, I made some inspiring Valentine’s for my co-workers. I bought some cute heart doilies, Disney Princess stickers, heart stickers, and heart-shaped embellishments for materials. Then I selected some of my favorite quotes from each movie and glued the message to each Valentine’s back. Whether it’s “A Dream is a Wish your Heart makes,” or “Go find your Dreams,” Disney movies are never short on inspiring dialogue.

I always enjoy making personalized crafts around any holiday. They bring smiles to people’s faces and a little bit of joy can make all the difference in a person’s day. 

The below images feature some fun Star Wars Valentine’s Day crafts that I find simply adorable. I haven’t tried either one of them yet, but I plan to once I return stateside. How-To guides are available on Starwars.com.

What would a holiday be without a new wave of products!

I love the new designs from LovePop Cards! Not to mention LovePop’s Star Wars Death Star Explosion Bouquet could be used year after year as a cute decoration for any home or office.

I’m also looking forward to getting my hands on a copy of Amy Richau’s book, I love You, I know – Lessons in Love and Friendship. Amy Richau (@amyrichau) is the working force behind 365starwars.com. Looking to learning more about the amazing women within the Star Wars Universe? This is definitely a website to check out.

Finally, I would be remised if I didn’t mention Funko Pop’s new Star Wars Valentine Pops. If you are looking to find them, Jenmarie (@acrossthestars) put together an excellent guide on her blog, Anakin and his Angel.
