Valentine’s Day: Homemade Cards Are The Best Cards

We’re all about spreading the love here at Slip77 and there’s no better day to do that than Valentine’s Day. It snuck up on ya, didn’t it? No worries, show your special someone that they’re someone special with a homemade card or two (using items you probably already have around the house)…Hallmark will have nothin’ on you!

Ok, so here’s what you’ll need for your homemade cards: colored paper, scissors, glue, colored pencil, yarn or ribbon, candles. Use your imagination and creativity (we know it’s in there!) and spread the Valentine’s cheer!

Cut multiple pieces of yarn in varying lengths then glue them to your card stock.

Fold one edge of your red or pink paper and draw one half of a heart. Cut along the lines and ta-da, you’ve got yourself a whole heart! Continue until you have enough hearts to top all of the pieces of yarn and glue them to the card stock as well.

The next card will need to pieces of paper, I chose white and pink to match the candles.

Fold both pieces of paper in half and trim a bit off of the white so the pink can peek through.

Glue a few candles to the white card stock.

Draw hearts above the candles to represent flames and a sweet message underneath.

We’ve also done our homework on places to take your sweetie for Valentine’s dinner. If they’re anything like us, then the way to their heart is through their stomach.
