Our Favorite Valentine's Day Quotes for Your Homemade Cards
We stand and stare at the racks and racks of red and pink Valentine's Day cards each season trying to find the perfect sentiment. Why let someone else say what you feel in your heart? Skip the greeting card aisle and head over to the craft section. Be creative, have a little fun, and make it yourself—you probably have a lot of these craft supplies at home. Anything will do. White typing paper, construction paper, leftover wrapping paper, or even a brown paper bag will make a good base for your card. Then go wild with bits and scraps of paper, ribbon, pictures from magazines, or your own photos to adorn the outside of the card. To complete this “made from the heart” card, you’ll need a sweet sentiment to go inside. Here are some of our favorite Valentine's Day quotes from Yoko to Shakespeare. We’re sure you’ll find the perfect message for your darling valentine.
