Cake Decorating Supplies

Everyone loves to get a beautiful card on Valentine's Day, but one that's homemade can be even more appreciated by the receiver, and certainly more fun for the giver.

One year I made a huge list of all the things I love about my husband, and made it into a simple gereting card; he loved it.

The kids can make cards for everyone, including their grandparents, teachers, neighbors and friends.

It doesn't have to be expensive, just from the heart!

Candy Cane Heart

Fold a piece of heavy red construction paper in half. Glue a smaller piece of pink paper to the front of the card, leaving enough red showing around the edges to make a border.

Take 2 red candy canes leftover from Christmas (or still on sale at your local stores for a great bargain!) and glue or tape them to the front of the card to form a heart.

The round part of the candy canes will face each other and the ends will meet at the bottom.

Now with a glitter pen, or gel pen, write "Happy Valentines Day" all around the candy canes, forming a line of repeated verse. For the final touch, write your sentiments on the inside of the card - and know that your recipient is going to love this beautiful gift from the heart.

Lollipop Heart

This one is really great for the kids to give their friends at school, and certainly more fun than one of those expensive and ordinary boxes of cartoon cards we usually buy at the store. Cut 3x5 size hearts out of red or pink heavy construction paper.

On each one, make two small slits off to the left side that will enable you to place the lollipop sticks through. On the right side of the heart write "Happy Valentine's Day, from - your child's name."

The kids will really enjoy making these homemade hearts for their friends, and probably want to keep one for themselves!

Photo Heart

Except this time, you will cut a small heart shape out of the center of the pink paper, and place a photo underneath it before gluing it to the card.

Make sure to pencil the heart in on the backside of the pink paper before cutting! You can write "Happy Valentine's Day" on the front, or on the inside, of the card and include a small note about the picture. These hearts are especially great for grandparents.

I Love You Heart

Next you get to be creative and possibly romantic on the inside of the card - tell the recipient how much you love them!
