Create a Homemade Card for Valentine's Day!

The Groves at Milford Blog, Milford, MA   Check out these fun ideas for creating a card to give to your Valentine including one made with thumbprints!

Last year, The Groves at Milford Blog shared some suggestions for a Valentine’s Day classic movie night, which is still a good option. This year, add a homemade card to the mix. Getting crafty is a fun way to break up the dreariness of winter here in Milford, MA, no matter the weather. Celebrate Valentine’s Day this year by giving a loved one a heartfelt and homemade card. Try one or all of these ideas in your apartment for a creative one you don’t even have to buy.


“Thumbody” Loves You: Thumbprint Valentines from Simply Kierste Design

This craft is perfect for pun-lovers. Get your hands (or your thumbs!) dirty by grabbing an ink or stamp pad and using your thumbs to create mini figures. Use the printable on the site or create your own card and design by using a different font. We also like the idea of using a bunch of your fingers or a friend or family members’ fingers, as well as your thumb to mix things up.


“I Love You This Much” Card from Tiff Keetch

Trace your hand or a little one’s for a personal card that combines creativity with minimalism in an easy project. Cut out the hands, glue some folded paper between them to connect them, and write or use stickers or stencils to write the words.


Puzzle Piece Valentine’s Day Card from Real Simple

For the minimalist in you or the person you’re giving to, try this idea. All you need is some cardstock, glue, and spare puzzle pieces. Take from a puzzle you don’t mind stealing from. It’s a great way to make use of a puzzle you no longer use or a puzzle with pieces already lost from it! Write in your best penmanship the words, “We just fit” under pieces, and be sure to write a more personal note on the inside to make it extra meaningful.
