Is there anyone else here that hates to throw ANYTHING away? Even paper scraps? I save and organize every bit I can so that when a holiday comes around I can do some projects like these Valentine’s Day crafts with paper. I also found a new resource to get LOTS of fun crafting papers… check out my video below.

Valentine’s Day Crafts with Paper
These paper scraps came from the monthly subscription box on NSPaperGoods. I shared in the video below but in case you don’t want to watch it, they’re a family-owned commercial print shop that didn’t want their trimmings and excess papers to go to waste. (Sounds like my kinda people!) So they started a monthly subscription box for paper crafters. Each month a 6″ x 9″ box, PACKED with papers, tags, magnets, envelopes, labels, and more, comes in the mail.
UPDATE: When I updated this article in 2021, it looks like this company has gone out of business. I’ll come back and update it again if I found out they’re still around.
Take a look at my monthly subscription box:
Here’s the perfect Valentine’s Day craft for all those thin paper strips in my box.
I have a small 1″ heart paper punch that I’m going to use for this project. This one will use up a lot of little paper scraps… even 1-2″ pieces.
Spiral Paper Flower Heart
I haven’t tried this one yet but I love how all the different shades of pink look mixed together!
And if you make that last heart, put a few letters around it for your mantle.
I did make some hearts like this last year with my 1″ paper punch. But mine were on a garland and didn’t have all these pretty beads.
I love the edges of these paper rosettes! Look closely… see the little tiny heart punches in each scallop?
I know some little girls that would love these bracelets!
I’ve never made a basket out of a paper plate. But this tutorial made it look easy. They could be decorated however you want. These would be great for sharing Valentine’s Day cookies!
Oh, yeah… I bought 2000 white tickets, too! This was the first garland I made.
I used a few more red tickets to make this little garland to add to my family photos.
I didn’t get any tissue paper in my monthly subscription box but I can probably find a few scraps around here somewhere!
