thank you all for the great ideas
i am officially done with all 50 valentines and will post pics when i have some time to take them!
i ended up doing the bookmark valentine. i got all kinds of v-day stamps at ac moore for 60 cents!! i also used some foamy hearts and some other cute stuff-- not the pinnacle of my creativity but i was going for mass production-- not impressiveness!!
^ i like the extra effort with the string and all and will prob do it in the future
the way this swap is working is that we're to make 50 v-day cards and send them with a self addresses & pre paid priority envelope to the girl coordinating it. when everyone sends their cards, she'll distribute all the different 50 into our seperate envelopes and drop them in the mail. that way we get 50 valentines all at one time without having to worry about shipping each one individually
i've never done a message board swap before (too scared to do a crafster one since i'm not THAT crafty!) so i've excited to see how it pans out
