// DIY Valentines! [a tad nsfw] //

HAI FRIENDS!

Happy Valentine’s Day (:

So I know people have (literally) love-hate relationships with Valentine’s Day, but honestly I just try to ignore the whole single-vs.-not-single stuff and make efforts to enjoy all of the sugar and mushy puns and witty cards!

That being said, if you’re looking for something sweet for anyone special in your life, I hope you can find it here– I just made these cards for my 3 roommates and I *love* how they turned out!
They’re mostly inside jokes, but I think the design could be used for any purpose you’d like (:

Let’s look at what happened:

// First I folded pink card-stock paper into a slender rectangle card (I liked the aesthetics of the long skinny card but you can honestly manipulate this to your liking!)

// I wrote the text I desired for the front in different fonts on white paper! (Sharpie thin pens work really well, but I used a black ballpoint pen for that kind of sketchy-not-quite-art vibe :P)

// I then cut the words out as squares and rectangles and proceeded to glue the words to the front of the cards.

//I wanted to make the words pop a bit, so I outlined the paper boxes in black sharpie!

//I finished off the cards with a cute message inside along with a personal note to the left!


….And there you have it! Super easy DIY Valentines for not only Feb 14th but anytime you want to make something for someone else (:
