Giggles and Glue Guns Handmade Valentine's Cards Mr. Kate

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and handmade Valentine’s cards are the way to go! Nothing says ‘I like you’ or ‘I love you’ like some creativity and some glue! Here are a couple ideas for some unique DIY Valentine’s Day cards…

DIY Valentine’s For Friends

I love this Valentine’s DIY from one of my favorite bloggers Elsie of A Beautiful Mess. She traced faces of celebrities or cute animals by back-lighting white paper against a window. Then she cut them out and glued them onto red heart shapes. Quirky and fun!

DIY Valentine’s For Lovers

This is a Valentine’s card I made last year using a page from an old worn book I got for 10 cents at a thrift store. Using a red pencil, I underlined any word or phrase that could be interpreted as lusty or sexy to tell my own story from the page. I then glued it on a piece of cardboard so it could stand alone and sealed it with a red lipstick kiss!
