We love to add our own little flair to our Valentine’s Cards over here…. its fun to personalize them to each of our kids’ likes and personalities. Spiffy-boy is definitely a fan of anything Star Wars (which is funny because he’s only seen bits and pieces of the actual movies) and girly-girl loved the pictures we took at a relative’s wedding reception where we held up the lips, glasses, and mustaches on a stick to make our faces look funny. Originally I wanted to get lip lollipops for hers, but I couldn’t find them at any local stores or online for a reasonable price and I didn’t want to invest that much time into making them myself. You can do a lot with Girly-girl’s card – “Kisses!.” MUAH,” “Valentine, you make me smile!,” etc. So these cards were what we came up with. I figure these don’t take any more effort or cost than a traditional box of Valentines cards if you would have added any kind of candy to them… the glow bracelets and lips were each $1 for a package of 12 (at the dollar store), and printing the pictures for both was $4.00.
Cute, personalized, and not too hard on the wallet sounds great for everyone!
