Valentine’s Day is coming up, and boy, do I have a fun craft project for you! If you have some old maps, travel brochures, foreign language magazines, and things like that lying around from past adventures—and you don’t mind cutting them up for the sake of love—read on.
I stuck the flowers in glass bottles collected from various countries to go along with the theme. Besides gifts and surprises, these could make great centerpieces or permanent decorations in a home or office. I could even see them adorning the front desk of a quirky little backpackers’ hostel.
Basically anything you save from your travels—subway and bus passes, newspapers, programs from performances, bottle caps, the photos you take—can turn into crafty gifts, if you have the time. I’m envisioning magnets, mobiles, picture frames, ornaments…. Any other ideas?
