DIY Valentines Day Gift with the Leather Love Journal

DIY Valentines Day Gift with the Leather Love Journal

DIY Valentines Day Gift are the best because they are made with love and come straight from the heart! It is also a cheap gift alternative to an otherwise made up holiday! I sound like I don’t like Valentines Day, but it’s the opposite, I love- LOVE and Valentiens day. BUT I do think it should be a bit more simple. Like, how it was when we were kids. We handmade thoughtful little glitter hearts for all of our little friends and the teachers we loved at school.

My husband and I both have birthdays near Valentines Day, so we usually opt for a chill night in (our tradition is to make a heart shaped pizza) and either skip presents all together or DIY Valentines Day Gift for one another. This year we are going on a big trip for our birthday, so we are forsure DIYing it this Valentines day.

I thought it would be cute to use the ClaireMagnolia leather Love Journal to take a trip down memory lane and write out our “love story”. ¬†Accompaning each story/memory with pictures I printed out on my polariod printer. The longest part to this DIY was finding the pictures and printing them out. I used colored photo corners to easily secure the pictures in place and wrote a little memory on the oposite page.

This journal is small, but big enough that I have plenty of room to continue to add to our love story through out the years. The love journal comes with the foiled emboss heart already, but you can of course add personalization to it too, intials would be cute!
