DIY Valentine Projects - Recycled Fridge Pen Holder

Like many projects I've featured here, this one can easily be adapted to Valentine's Day by just changing the colors to red tones. This is something that can also be given any time of the year, for many occasions that call for something quick, easy, thoughtful AND useful! As you've probably already guessed, this uses recycled paper tubes.

The very brief (it is very easy) tutorial is over here at SewAndDipity, at this link.

Make up a bunch of these with Valentine-themed paper and keep them handy for those moments when you think of someone who you want to cheer up on Heart-Day.

Use scrapbooking paper, crepe paper, or make and print something from your PC. According to one of the comments on Shelley's post, one of her visitors even used fabric.

You could put initials on it or anything else that suits you and/or your recipient.

This project was found in one of my daily e-newsletters from CraftGossip.

This is part of my series (1/15-2/14) of Valentine projects.

For other projects in this series, just look along the right sidebar for the label "Valentine Projects." I will post only tips that do not require knitting, crocheting, machine sewing, tatting, embroidery, or any other skilled technique.

If you are feeling lazy, check my Etsy shop for items for your gift list.
