With Valentine's Day approaching, many start to feel a lot of pressure in finding the perfect Valentine's Day card for their loved ones. You can spend countless hours driving to various stores searching for the best card, but the solution is much more simpler than that! Create your very own, handmade, old fashioned Valentine's Day card for your sweetie today! It will be one of a kind, from the heart, and made by your own two hands! This will surely allow them to know just how much you care.
Things You'll Need
- Construction paper
- Glitter or ribbon
- Marker or pen
First decide how you would like your card to appear. Some people find that gluing a simple heart onto a different color of square construction paper works best. Others find that creating a heart you can fold as a card works better. It's very simple to make either one, so decide, shape, and cut your card first.
Next you will personalize your card by writing your own piece of mind inside. Whether you're a poet or just feel the need to write your endless love, write something that comes straight from the heart. Remember to write legibly! And always sign your name at the bottom, with love.
Here's the fun part... Decorate! You'll want to put some style into your Valentine's Day card. You may choose to sprinkle different colors of glitter to your card to give it some sparkle or you may want to outline the heart with pretty ribbon. Be creative!
Your last step is to package your card in a creative manner. You may want to include it with a special Teddy Bear, taped in hand, or you may just want to hide it in a decorated envelope, waiting somewhere obvious where your honey will find it. Just make sure it's presented to them in a special manner that will be sure to lift their heart with excitement!
