Sending Valentines

I love sending snail mail and valentines are no exception. Some years I have hand made valentines, but in the past few years I’ve bought kits and it’s worked out really well. You don’t have to send them to everyone you know, just a few friends and family members that you know would appreciate the thoughtfulness.

It’s not too late to buy your valentines to get ready to send them out next week. My top picks are Rifle Paper Co, Paper Source, and then Michael’s (in-store).

Do you send out valentines? Do you buy them or make them yourself?

    These are all so cute! I usually use generic blank note cards and dress them up with valentine colors. I love your postcards though especially with the perfect stamps to match!

      Thank you!!! It’s nice that you send Valentines, very sweet!

      And thank you for appreciating the stamps – I usually buy them online but I ran to the post office and waited 25 minutes for them. Totally worth it for Valentine’s day postcards. 😉

      Thank you! I love Rifle Paper Co.! I use them for wedding cards too and buy them in a box set. Saves me time and money!
