Homemade Valentine’s Day Card Ideas

Truth:  I’ll be spending the next few days trying to talk my 6 y.o.into allowing me to make his Valentines just one.more.year.  You can see from this post last year, that I kinda like making a whole day out of it.  ;)
He wants those Star Wars Valentines, you know the ones in a booooox.  (It’s all I can do to keep from saying booooox – it’s such a painful word, for this paper loving mama.)  He says he wants light sabers on his Valentines.  Gah.  He’s killing me.  My husband just rolls his eyes at me.
All I ask, is that I make his Valentine cards until the twins go to school.  Then he can have those booooox kind of cards & I’ll make the twins their Valentines.  Well, until they’re ready for light sabers & barbies, that is. Gah!
I couldn’t help but put some of my favorite homemade cards in a post.   Just so I could at least have them here on the blog.  You know…just in case I don’t get my way this weekend.
Fingers crossed, I do.
Hello! I’m so glad you’re here & reading my posts! I’ve started truncating my posts, so please click over to read the rest of the story!


  1. Thanks so much for posting my Army Men! Happy Valentine’s Day :)

  2. Oh these are just perfect! Is it a sad thing I have seen them all on pinterest? Is it ruining things for those who do amazing round ups like these? Although I would not have wanted to miss a bit of your commentary on the boooooooxed cards. You are too adorable!

  3. Great ideas! I have 3 boys and can completely relate to the cards in a boooooox! So funny! Last week i posted a free printable…just for BOYS!!! Thought I’d pass it along. ;)

  4. I LOVE THEM ALL. Off to pin them now …

  5. All of these ideas are wonderful. I love the arrows…

    I’m sure you’ve looked into all the possibilities, but you could make him a Star Wars card that was way more special than from the box. :) I know what you mean about cards from box. They stifle creativity!

  6. What a great idea

  7. Kellie! Check the KSW FB page, there’s a link to some printable Star Wars valentines …. oh so darling!!! Maybe you guys can compromise, at least on a few :)

  8. thanks so much for sharing my little hearts. :)

  9. Oh, I really like that last picture! & hopefully you can make some for your boy for one more year. ;)

  10. Thanks for picking my Blow Me A Kiss tubes. Love your blog! -Jenny, Bloom Designs

  11. I really like the first picture. That card is so cute. My kids just got me an envelope printer for my birthday and now I really want to make my own cards. I am not very crafty but I am going to try. I can’t wait until the next holiday so I can send out homemade cards and decorated envelopes.
