Remember those perforated cheesy valentines cards you would exchange in elementary school? Anyone have any fun alternative uses for them? Our local thrift store have like a million boxes of different ones and they are all only 29 cents each! ...I held off on buying them all until my fellow craftsters helped me out with some ideas.  Grin So bring 'em on!!! hehe I might also be sensing a swap theme here...thoughts?!

Make a bag! or wallet or something!

I dont know.. That was my first idea.. Ive seen bags made out of EVERYTHING lately.. Maybe special valentine gift bags?

Or cut them apart and make something totally new?

my first thought is a kissing ball but they are for christmas...i think...but it'd still be cute.

I have a huge wastebasket that someone decoupaged vintage valentines on and it's one of my favorite things!

They'd be cute glued to the outside of brown bags then put some baked goodies in and punch holes then tie with a pretty red ribbon....

will keep thinking Smiley

I ran with the gift bag idea, thank you so much for the suggestion! 1 box of valentines + Packing tape = A 29 cent Valentines gift bag! What do you think?

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.
