Funny story. There’s been a tiny bit of a mixup with my Valentine’s Day Kiss card. I had someone in mind I wanted to give it to, but it turns out I’m not going to see that person before Valentine’s Day. Then the fella (yes, that fella) happened to see the the card online and said he’d like it. I won’t say what went through my head when he messaged me that idea, but suffice it to say in cartoon language it was “Zoinks”. If my calculations are accurate the fella gave up the chance to be my Valentine close to 2 years ago.
So now I’m stuck with a Valentine’s Day card large enough to look comfortable in God’s arms and filled with enough chocolate to pacify the entire cast of Bridesmaids.
So now it’s me, the card, the chocolates and a staring contest. So far I’m winning but it’s only a matter of time. And hunger. And privacy.
I know not everyone has it in them to make a 2′ high Valentine’s card filled with $30 worth of chocolates, so for those of you who have left it to the last minute but want something unique I have for you these 4 Valentine DIYs.
You can download this cute l’il thing here.
(these are the Howard Holt salt & pepper shakers I’m referring to)
You can buy these guys on Etsy by the way.
Next up from The Graphics Fairy is a collection of 30 cute Valentine printables that you can print out onto cards. Like this pair of kid clowns.
This next thing is GREAT! GREAT I SAY!
I remember these. Do kids still do this? I was the one kid who didn’t know how to fold one of these. Ironic. I know.

Finally this schmaltzy (which I love) graphic for a plain paper bag. But that’s not the greatest thing in the photo.
It’s the HEART SHAPED CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES!
Download the paper bag printable from Twig & Thistle.
And if that’s not enough for you take a look at this post I did last year on fun ways to shape/make food for Valentine’s day. It’s worth the look for this alone … my teeny, tiny, easy mini tarts.
Because even if you hate Valentine’s day, or any other holiday for that matter … it can always be redeemed … with food.
Have a good weekend!
