Of course Valentine’s Day would not be complete without the traditional exchange of pink and red cards. While there is nothing wrong with construction paper and doily cards or those cards that you can buy at the store, there are many more ideas that you can incorporate into your card making to do something a little different. Making new cards out of old cards is actually gaining a lot of popularity. By saving old cards and cutting out the portions of them that you think you can re-use for something else not only provides you with an opportunity to make and give a unique card, but you can also be environmentally responsible by re-using what you already have. You can create mosaics with the portions of old cards that you may think no longer have a use. You can also incorporate the gift or a treat with the card by adhering your treats to the inside of the cards (after they are wrapped of course so that they are still edible). Try to think outside of the box when it comes to your card making. Keep your recipient in mind and try to create a card with a theme that is especially exciting to them. Your card does not have to be perfect, so children can be active participants in the card-making process. After all, it is the thought that counts when it comes to giving gifts to those who are special to you.
