I found a stash of vintage Valentine’s Day cards in my mom and dad’s house when we were cleaning things out.  They are so cute that I kept them.  These may have been leftover from when Markeda and I took these to school to share with our class mates.

Do you remember in elementary school making a bag or box in which to collect your Valentine’s cards?  Then we would have a Valentine’s Day party with cookies and punch and all go around the room to stuff our cards in the containers.  How fun!

Too cute!

My favorite Valentine craft was the woven hearts.  The ones where you interweave the two parts of the heart together in the middle.  They looked so nice.

I also found a set of adult Valentine’s Day cards, some of which have a copyright of 1960.  They are totally retro cool!

Bonus Information:  If you want to make a woven paper heart, check YouTube.  There are several videos that show you how to make them.
