DIY Valentine’s Day Cards

There is something special about receiving a handmade card. Unlike store bought cards, a handmade card is made with just that one special recipient in mind. It’s a thoughtful way to make the card more personal. If you look on Pinterest you will find a ton of elaborate and fabulous DIY Valentine’s Cards. Today, I wanted to inspire you with the easiest of cards to make. Aside from finding your craft goods, the cards take about 10 minutes to make.

Items needed

  • Blank craft cards (mine – Target $1 bin)
  • Valentine’s Day letter and heart stickers (mine – HomeGoods, but Michael’s, Amazon, or Hobby Lobby would carry these items). Donut stickers – Amazon
  • Valentine’s paper fan stickers (mine – Target $1 bin)
  • Pencil, black sharpie, scissors, glue stick, heart-shaped cookie cutter

Tip – Write the words with a pencil, and then trace over. Erase pencil marks after. What doesn’t say “I love you” more than a quote with bacon involved!

Use a wedding picture or old photo of you and your significant other for an unexpected surprise. Simply place your cookie cutter over the portion of the picture you want inside the card.  Trace around the cookie cutter and cut.
