Valentines Cards / January 4, 2019 / Cecelia Montgomery
If your child seems to want to use only Valentines that are store bought this should be okay as well. Allow them to pick those that they find enjoyable and help them to make those for others as well. Valentines Day is a wonderful occasion for giving your loved ones handmade greeting cards but coming up with Valentine card ideas all by yourself is not always easy. After all you want your card to be special and something your loved ones will always treasure. Choosing the right motif or embellishment for your Valentine card is the key to a great card. Your embellishment generally becomes the focal point of your card and the element that stands out the most so think carefully about what you want to use. The scrapbooking industry always makes sure we have plenty of different Valentines Day embellishments to choose but do not let yourself be overwhelmed by the sheer number of choices.
The 14th of February that special and romantic day dedicated to lovers and those who are in love. Flowers cards and romantic gestures are given and received and the world becomes a wool place of hearts bunnies and soft violin music. Yeah right! Do you think that Valentines Day is about pranks on your friends? Maybe you are the friend who never receives a Valentines card and are sick of being the one left on the shelf? Whatever the reason youre going to love this idea we have come up with especially for Valentines Day. Giving Valentines to your classmates used to include endless hours of making them out of construction paper cute dollies and with painstaking attention to all the details. It was a project that was done at home for each individual child in the class.
It came from a time of collecting these types of catchy cute sayings and riddles. These can still be found today on the Valentines that are purchased out of the box. The Cards The cards used to fill a box with a variety of different styles and designs. Common ones were those of fruits and vegetables with these puns on them or they could include a few pictures of cute animals. Today childrens Valentines are more often in their favorite cartoon character. Homemade Valentines While children may not feel comfortable with providing homemade Valentines to their classmates today they can and should still make them for their friends outside the classroom for their adult friends and other loved ones. Not only is it a fun task to do but it helps with motor skills and creativity as well. All that is needed is a simple piece of paper.
