1) CUSTOMIZED PLAYING CARDS

Great for those kids who would like to share Valentine greetings with many, each deck of cards yields 13 heart-printed options (26 if you decide to use the diamonds, and 39 if you push it with the spades). Customization can be as simple as punching a hole and tying on a bit of ribbon, or as elaborate as illustrating each card with tiny Valentine characters. There are a host of great ideas in the book Let’s Play Cards: How to Turn Playing Cards Into Art (with a large selection of pages ready for view via Google books).

2) I LOVE YOU *THIS* MUCH (RUBBER BAND CARDS)

This cute, minimalist idea is derived from a ‘friendship’ bracelet I once made for my son. Using a fine tip permanent marker, simply write a cute phrase on a broad stretched rubber band. When released, the message becomes illegible. The recipient can then stretch the band to decode the hidden message. To present the gift as a card, simply stretch the band around a 4×6 piece of card stock (hand illustrated for bonus points).

INSTRUCTIONS: HIDE NOTES ON A RUBBER BAND

3) POP-OUT LOLLY CARDS

Check out Dr. John’s sneaky herbal lollipops. Can it be true? A cavity-fighting candy? True or not, here is a nifty way to present lollipop Valentines to friends. The trompe l’oeil cards only take a few minutes to make, but the impression will be long-lasting. And pairing a sweet treat with a photograph will really put the sentiment over the top!
