Look around. Those in love are happy. But should February make only those in love happy?! Of course not... Think about how much you enjoy your friendships and your family.
When was the last time you made a card for someone you cared for? TRY IT.
Use colors! Pinks. Reds. Oranges. Yellows. Greens. Blues. Purples.
Use beads. Use lace. Use ribbon. Use candy.

St. Valentine's Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. So, who was Saint Valentine and how did he become associated with this ancient rite?

a HAPPY how to makes homemade Valentine cards
You will need:
Card Stock (of any color)!
See through vinyl
Shears (of any color)!
Ribbon (of any color)!
Draw a heart on card stock that measures about 5 ½ inches across. Place a sheet of see-through vinyl over the card stock and cut along your outline so you end up with two hearts, one vinyl and one card stock.
Write a message on the back of the card stock heart. Trim the edge of the vinyl one with shears.
Lay the vinyl heart atop the card stock one and punch an even number of holes around the edges.
Lace the 2 hearts most of the way together with a yard of 3/8-inches-wide ribbon. Put a few pieces of candy inside, then finish lacing the hearts and tie the ribbon in a bow.
Recipients of this valentine need only look into their hearts to find something truly sweet!
HAPPY valentine’s Day!
