Valentine’s day is just around the corner!  This year I thought I’d go ahead and make my own valentines.  I had a large amount of blank white cards that I had bought before Christmas with the good intentions of making homemade Christmas cards.  December got ahead of me and the cards never were made, so I decided to use them for Valentine’s day.  These cards are simple, cost effective and use hardly any materials so they are great for just about anyone to make!  Happy Valentine’s day friends! 1.) Simple text card:

This card is pretty self explanatory.  I used a black sharpie as my only material and just simply wrote “love” on the front of the card.  Sometimes crafts don’t have to be complicated:)

2.) Pennant Banner CardFive Easy DIY Valentine Cards | www.gimmesomeoven.com/style #valentine #diy #cards Five Easy DIY Valentine Cards | www.gimmesomeoven.com/style #valentine #diy #cards

For this card you will need:

  • blank white card
  • craft paper (color of your choice) cut into small triangles
  • red and black sharpies
  • baker’s twine or string
  • hot glue

The pennant banner card is also very simple.  I simply cut my brown craft paper into small triangles and drew some fun designs on each triangle.  I then hot glued the triangles onto the card and topped the triangles with some cute baker’s twine. (Hot glueing the twine on as well)  This card could be great for any occasion!

3.) Stamp Card

4.) “Look Inside” Card

You will need:

  • Blank white card
  • hole punch
  • ribbon of your choice
  • craft paper cut in the shape of hearts (your choice of color)
  • thin black sharpie
  • hot glue

Decorate the front of your card.  I went with simple text with a thin black sharpie.  Punch a hole about a 1/2 inch from the edge of the card.  String your ribbon through the inside of the card and hot glue your hearts onto the string.  I chose to write “I love you” on the inside of the card, but you can customize it to whatever you’d like. Once you are finished with the card tie it closed with either a knot or a bow!

5.) “I Still Choose You” Card
