I’ve always loved making homemade Valentines, and this year I got inspired by the grocery and advertising newspaper inserts that were headed for the recycling bin. I simply cut out hearts from the paper and glued them on a plain card that I purchased in a pack of 50. The cards retail for $6.99 at Michael’s, but if you use one of the 40% off coupons that frequently run in the paper, the cost is $4.20 a pack or about 8 cents per card. This definitely beats spending $3 to $4 for a card! Write your own sentiment inside, and your loved one will have a one-of-a-kind, eco-friendly Valentine.
If you’re making Valentine’s Day cards from unusual materials, we’d love to see what you’re up to. Happy Hearts Day and hugs to all,
