Valentine’s Day: Two days away. You still have not chosen a gift for your boyfriend or girlfriend. Nothing feels worse than waiting until the last minute to buy a gift, so why not make one they will actually like, and you can finish it before the big day?

For all of these you will just need scissors and glue.
