Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and this is the perfect holiday to celebrate love, happiness and companionship. This is a great holiday to present the ones you love with gifts to express your appreciation. Well, if you are in college, you are probably working with a small budget. In this article, I have compiled easy and affordable, yet memorable Valentine’s Day DIYs.

Date Night booklet

Assorted decorative paper (used as dividers)

Pens

Steps:

Design both sides of the note card.

On the front of the card, put one month of the year along with your chosen date night. Then decorate the back (with things such as cute notes or sayings).

There will be two additional note cards left over: one for the title cover and one for the end cover (you could also decorate both of these).

In between each note card, add some decorative paper or photographs.

Punch a hole into the left top corner of the note cards.

Insert your binder ring through the holes of the note cards.
