Free Printables: Kid Valentine Cards

By: Diy maven Jan 21, 2015

Four, opening all the cards I got from the other kids and hoping my crush gave me an equally mushy card. I think my fond memoriesContinue Reading

By: Diy maven Dec 03, 2014

POST UPDATE: Another cool card has been added to the list! The cool thing about folded paper Christmas cards is the paper does all the work, meaning, once you're done cutting and folding, embellishment isn't all that necessary. Plus, oftentimes there's no need for coloring or lettering, both of which can go bad very quickly. (Although I don't have any funny examples to show you--nobody posts their greeting card fails, apparently--you can trust my assertion, because it's happened to meContinue Reading
