One of the best days of the year for me as a child was Valentine’s Day. I remember decorating my shoebox for classroom valentines with great care. Since then, I’ve graduated from the shoebox but still love to send and receive valentines.
Everyone comes to expect a holiday card, but a photo card for Valentine’s Day would be a pleasant surprise and may be the only photo card that your loved one receives. A year or so ago, I sent a photo card with the minnies’ picture on it to family and friends. My Nana, the minnies’ great-grandmother, remarked that she loved the card and showed it to all of her friends. The picture was so special to her!
Be creative with your picture for the card. Children could make a heart with their fingers and hands. Write a message on a piece of paper or card to hold in front of you to take the picture. The possibilities are endless.
Shutterfly has some fantastic options for your Valentine’s Day cards. With over 50 new styles with unique color stories and artistic typography in 5 different sizes, there's something that will perfectly match your style.
I especially love the Love Chevron Valentine Card and plan to use it this year. The 5 x 5 stationery card is so modern and whimsical.
The Striped Love Valentine Card is a perfect choice for a classroom valentine.
I also adore the desktop plaque from Shutterfly. It's a fun alternative to a traditional frame and brightens any desk.
