Thinking back to Valentine’s Day celebrations in class when I was a kid, I remember getting loads of cards each year. But what I remember the most is receiving cards with candy attached to them. That was the best!
I always try to make my daughter’s school Valentine’s cards extra special with some sort of treat – lollipops, snack size bags of M&Ms, Valentine’s Muddy Buddies, etc., but what I’m not a huge fan of are the generic Valentine’s cards that everyone buys from Target or Walmart. Sure, they’re cute, but we end up getting 10 of the same cards by the end of the holiday.
Last year we ordered our Valentine’s Day cards from Minted.com and everyone absolutely loved them. If you missed last year’s article, check it out here.
This year I decided to use one of my favorite photos of my daughter from our Grand Cayman vacation in November for her school cards. I originally had the hole-punched card (shown below) in my cart and intended on placing a lollipop through hole, but decided to go with a rectangular scalloped card with hearts, instead. My daughter loves the rainbow colored hearts, so it was an easy decision for her.
I chose to leave the backs of our cards blank so my daughter can write cute little notes on the back. She is learning how to read and spell right now and loves to write notes to everyone.
