A Valentine’s Day Craft With The Middlest Sister

Paperdoll Studios Guest Post / Crafted in Carhartt
Meet Nicole Smeltzer, the author and illustrator of The Middlest Sister. After the loss of her grandfather, Nicole sought out ways to cheer up her family with nostalgic recounts of days gone by. With a spark of craftiness and necessity, she began cutting up old greeting cards and junk mail to put together a comic that has now taken off with popularity. Her family centered plot-lines, painstaking attention to detail, and hard work has captured the hearts of thousands of followers.

Nicole is going to lead us through a Valentine’s DIY today that is easy on the wallet and designed with love:
