One idea for a homemade Valentine's Day card is to make the card into a lollipop holder. Other ideas include using pink or red birthday candles on the card or using the king or queen of hearts from a deck of cards to decorate a blank card.
Turning a card into a lollipop holder involves folding a piece of cardstock in half and attaching the lollipop to the inside. The card may be decorated with hearts, scrapbook stickers and loving messages.
One may glue pink or red birthday candles on the cover of or inside a blank card. Little hearts may be drawn in for flames and a cute message added such as "you light up my life." The king or queen of hearts may also be glued to any part of a card along with a little message such as "king of my heart" or "my queen of hearts."
Another idea for a homemade Valentine's Day card is to cut patterned paper so that it looks like strips of ribbon. These strips may then be glued to a cardstock base as decoration. A short-and-sweet message such as "loving you" or "be mine" may also be scripted on the ribbon pieces.
