Buying Valentines cards can be a drag. . . The pre-printed little cards seem so. . . so standard. I’m guilty of buying them on February 13th, scraping together what’s left on the supermarket shelf, but I do much prefer to do something creative – if I’m going to participate in a commercially based holiday about love, I’d prefer to put a little love into the celebration! In the past I have also printed my own Valentines cards for my daughter to bring to school – but here are some other great ideas for making Valentines that really get your creative juices flowing!
Mad Lib Valentines. I am simply mad about Mad Libs! I have a HUGE stash of these dating from high school so this idea seemed absolutely genius to me! Visit Design Mom’s blog to get the full description.
Scratch and Win Valentines. I’ve just discovered that I can make my own scratch off art – and I’m determined to give it a try. You can imagine my delight at finding these little bad boys!
Peony Pattern Wrap Around Labels and Valentines Wrap Around Labels from How Joyful. I LOVE this idea – gorgeous peony design, super cute Valentine design and both available as a printable freebie. What a great gift, thanks Joy!!
