Roundup: Quick Little Valentine’s Day Crafts

Okay, I’ll admit I’m one of those people that doesn’t do Valentine’s Day crafts – I’m into the cinnamon hearts for sure, but stockpiling red and pink paper for the day has never been on my mind. Where does one find the time? The space for the supplies? That was my excuse – until now. Contemporary, simple, and not at all frilly, these are my kinds of Valentines – graphic, fun, and I love how they use up scraps and little bits I have hanging around. Oh, and did I mention they are quick? If you haven’t already made plans for next weekend, why not spend a “crafternoon” making Valentines? Whether you host a Valentine’s craft date, or set up an independent activity for your kids, here are some easy little projects you can quickly craft up.

Crafting & gift wrap centre | Organize your life!

This new year I set a goal to finally finish setting up my office. I’m a freelance graphic designer so I work both from home and at agencies in-house. When I’m at home I want my office to be a place where I can focus on work. Currently, it’s a catch-all, where we throw clean laundry to fold, store any kids projects we want to keep, hold unused wrapping paper, store crafting supplies. Last year was incredibly busy, so my office has taken over a year to finish. This year, my first project was creating a craft and gift-wrapping area. Since my office is small, the only place I had for it was behind the door.

Below you will find a step-by-step guide to how I created my fabulous crafting and wrapping supplies station. Happy organizing!
