Valentines Cards / January 3, 2019 / Eve Owen
And it was one that great pride was taken in doing. Today there are much fewer families making Valentines and many more just buying a box of them to give out to their classmates with a simple signature on the back of them. This has happened mainly because of how commercialized the holiday has become. As manufacturing techniques have gotten better and more cost effective that is the way that American school children have gone. Before this in the 1960s a book of valentines could be purchased. Children could actually cut out the cards from the book personalize them with lace trim or even with candy and then send them on. But it wasnt long before children were ready to skip the cutting out part altogether. The Puns Who hasnt smirked at the cute sayings that are placed on the Valentines cards? Such sayings as "Im Sweet On You" have been used for years and years.
With crochet you can create almost anything you want and attach it to the Valentine card. Flowers hearts letters words and more. When making small crochet pieces you dont need much yarn at all you can just use leftovers you have from other creations. For Valentines Day some small crochet hearts would suit perfectly as decorations attach to the Valentine card. If you are not sure how to make these hearts you can use the free receipt for a small crochet heart that I found on the website noted at the bottom of this article. These hearts are also suitable to decorate presents with. Just glue them to the paper or use double-sided tape to attach them. A Valentine card does not necessarily have to be a typical folded card there are no rules to follow. Use your creativity and make something new fun and different.
