Who do you love?

7th January 2008 by Denise

Anyone? No one? Someone… but you haven’t told them yet? Shockingly, if you want to make a really personal Valentines card or present this year, you need to start thinking about this now. How do I know? Well, because people are already blogging about it. And, lets face it, it takes time to think of what you want to make, get something printed and then to work your own special magic on it.

We’re busy working on a few ideas of our own, and will share them with you over the next few weeks. In the meantime,here’s an idea to get you started – look at this, by Steve O:

It’s 100 MiniCards, carefully mounted into a shadow box frame. Some of the cards are mounted on a little foam board to give a feeling of depth, and some extra interest. Steve worked out the layout before he made the cards, to ensure he had the correct number of portrait and landscape images. He then drew the layout in illustrator, printed it off and used transfer paper to trace the layout onto the foam board.

Sadly you can’t actually see the images in situ, but trust me – it looks great – and you should read the comments – for example “This gets the “thoughtful husband award”…award!”

So if you have any pictures of you and your Valentine-to-be together, maybe now is the time to start thinking about how to use them.

If you’ve got any good ideas of things you can make for Valentines Day, let us know in the comments – we love hearing about your ideas.

    Reading this post just gave me a very simple idea, but one which I believe might be well worth the attention.

    What about simply using Moo cards this valentine to tell your friends and everyone you just care.

    Or a bouquet of cards, each with a different love quote or romantic phrases that will make your other half’s heart melt every time he or she picks one …

  2. Denise:

    @Bruno – those are lovely ideas. Personally I like the idea of sneaking a valentines MiniCard into someone’s book, or bag when they’re not looking. And a bouquet of cards is so sweet :)
    Text MiniCards are really nice for this as you could write something really personal on each one. (Personal and nice, that is!)
