Valentines Cards / January 3, 2019 / Cristina Pennington
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.
Apart from putting in a good thought all people need to spend time working towards making or selecting the perfect one. It is really not about being perfect but it is about looking for the best so as to please the people you love. When you are in love you are bound to have a bigger drive when it comes to selecting good ones. Therefore look for a way in which you can save some time to dedicate your effort to finding good Valentine cards to send. The other thing to consider before choosing Valentine cards to send is the kind of relationship you are in. There are very many people who are in platonic relationships and this is to say that Valentines Day is not just for lovers. It is for people who appreciate the glory of love. There are very many kinds of love for example; you could be planning to send cards to your parents or children.
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.
