Part of Valentine's Day is the giving of the valentine. I made a few homemade cards this year and thought I would share. They are easy to make, fun to personalize, and you get to be creative. Although, you won't think I'm very creative after you see mine, because they all kind of look the same. But hey, I can't win at everything, right?
Basically, the important things are red/pink/purple construction paper, glue, markers, scissors, and doilies. I know, you're probably thinking, who the heck uses doilies. BUT, I argue that doilies are so fun and really make a valentine look wonderful.
Here's our collection of things:
Who doesn't want that box of crayons, huh? 120! wow.
Okay, so there you have it. It's especially more fun if you get together with friends to make them.
Here is my friend Dayna working hard on her cards:
She's clearly very into that card. And here I am, working with some fancy paper:
Okay, so do you want to see the finished product? Here's the problem I did realize after I made them. They are too big to put in a regular envelope, so it's kind of making a problem. How am I going to mail them to people? And also, it's officially Friday, so there's not really time to mail them. Dang it. I should have planned better. I blame it on my kidneys. If they had been working correctly I would have been able to go to the post office.
So, here are my cards:
Pretty cool, huh? See, and you thought the doilies would be lame, didn't you?
Okay, it's not too late. Go get your construction paper, scissors, markers, and glue and make some valentines! You have two days!
Also, I must say I'm slightly disappointed we only got five questions. Really? No one has a question for us? I'm throwing it out there one more time. Any question you want to ask us we will answer. So think of something if you can.
Happy Valentine's Day!
