Something To Do For Your Valentine!

Valentine's Day is quickly approaching and will be upon us before you know it! So, the first question...
Do you have a Valentine?

If your answer is yes, then congratulations. We're happy for you! 

If your answer is no, then no worries! You ROCK that single status!

Whichever way you answer, we hope you consider making some homemade Valentine's Day decorations this season! After all, the holiday only comes once a year. You see, Valentine's Day isn't reserved specifically for those people in relationships, it's a celebration of love! Love for your family! Your friends! Your significant other! Your dog or cat! Maybe your dog and cat! That pie in your refrigerator, or that book you're reading for the tenth time! Love comes in all forms, so here are some ideas from us to you on how to express that love to whoever or whatever you deem worthy of it. 

Each Valentine idea below is made with materials that can be found in the School Supplies & Art Department of the BYU Bookstore! If you have any questions, comments, or feel like sharing with us who your Valentine is this year, feel free to post a comment below! We would love to here from you! 
(See what we did there?)

We wish you luck, 

Your friends here at the BYU Bookstore School Supplies & Art Department.
