Valentine's Day Gifts and Decorations

Make the Heart Accordian Valentine's Day card:
Print the template onto plain paper and cut out. On a piece of cardstock, draw and cut out a 5-1/2x12-inch rectangle. Fold accordion-style along the short side (as indicated by the dotted lines). You should have six sections. Place the template on the folded paper with the open side of the heart over the top fold. Trace heart and cut out. On contrasting paper, trace a heart that's slightly larger all around. Glue to the back of the center heart on your accordion.

Decorated candles like these can be expensive. Save money by making your own using plain candles and fern leaves. You can even use extra candles you have around the house. The leaves will make any group of candles look like a matching set.
