Making a Valentine’s Day card >> buying Valentine’s Day cards. These card ideas will make you say “Be mine.” 

Hello love birds! Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and because it falls not much more than a month after Christmas, I’m all about keeping costs down and the gifts personal. That means making my own cards. I don’t know about you, but where I live I’ve noticed that cards have taken a hike in price and decided to camp out on a tall mountain and not come down...basically what I’m saying is that they are expensive! I mean, WHOA! Eight dollars for a V-day card?! I could eat at Taco Bell like three times for that price...dolla (menu) make you holla! (Love T. Bell...judge me).

Here’s some free Valentine’s advice—these DIY cards are way better than anything you can buy because: 1) They come from the heart and 2) They’re pretty funny/creative. Okay, these aren't all strictly DIY, but you can use them as inspiration for making your very own Valentine's Day cards! Take a look!!
