Valentine's Day Cards...34 Cute Ideas

I LOVE cute Valentines.  Growing up, it was always exciting to go to the store and pick out our favorite paper Valentines.  And, then we'd make our Valentines' card holders out of paper plates and decorate them.  Oh the days!  There are SO many cute ideas now for special Valentines!  And, I couldn't resist showing a few of my favorites!  Each one is linked to its home site.  These are all just too fun!  And, so many of these are printables that you can just download and print!  Or, easily create something similar!

The Girls' Valentines
Last year, we did the cute bubble gum machine ones.  This year, I found these cute heart puzzle cards at the craft store on clearance.  They were originally $5 marked down to $2 plus 10% off!  (thank you, military discount!)  I wish I could have been a little more creative with the decorating, but I just let the girls color them and write names on them.  Love that they are little puzzles!  

I hope these ideas can be a fun collection to look at and possibly find a cute idea to use to spread some "love!" Happy "heart" day!

After reading my comment it sounds creepy coming from "anonymous". This is what I get for not being connected to social media like my wonderful wife. (I guess I can also use this as a spoiler alert to tell everyone that our trustees are updating the parsonage bathroom, so look for some bathroom tips coming up) :)

Was a little creepy there. Glad you're home safely and yes sir you have a wonderful wife. I am her pretty parsonage social media promoter :)
