DIY: Sequin Embellished Valentine’s Day Cards

Glitter N Glue DIY Sequin Valentines CardsI’m notorious for never getting Holiday cards in the mail in time. My Christmas cards usually arrive around New Years and you might get your Birthday card the month after. I’m really telling on myself here but I just mailed my niece and nephew’s Valentine’s Day cards… that I purchased for them last year! Yes, I bought them last year, addressed them, added stickers to the envelope and NEVER mailed them. The cards have been sitting on my desk for an entire year!! #DontJudge

This year I’m determined to craft my Valentine’s AND get them in the mail on time. This project is quick and easy and adds a very glamorous touch to your love notes.

Glitter N Glue DIY Sequin Valentines Cards MATERIALSMaterials: Blank Cards*, Sequin Trim, Glue, Scissors and a Pencil

*I purchase these blank cards from Paper Source (20 for $6.75) but you can create your own cards by folding over a piece of construction paper or card stock.

  13. Those cards are so cute! Also, I’m so happy to find someone who’s as bad about mailing cards as I am!!! I have piles and piles of postcards that I’ve bought with all the best intentions but never mailed.

  18. Ha ha. I’m the same way. But my biggest problem is finding a card that says exactly what I’m feeling for each person. So now I prefer to make thing myself. GREAT POST!!

    Feeling crafty? Feeling in love?
    Για να εξωτερικεύσεις τη δημιουργικότητά σου και την αγάπη σου μπορείς με τον πιο εύκολο τρόπο να φτιάξεις αυτήν την χαρούμενη κατασκευή! Θα σε συμβούλευα αν το πάρεις απόφαση και συγκεντρώσεις τα υλικά, να φτιάξεις 3-4 καρτούλες και να τις προσφέρεις όποτε σου δοθεί η αφορμή! Γενικώς, όποτε φτιάχνω τέτοιες χειροτεχνίες, δε μένω μόνο σε αυτή που θα προσφέρω σήμερα (ή έστω αύριο!) μα ετοιμάζω μερικές και τις έχω στο αρχείο μου (ναι, στο μυστικό κουτί!) έτοιμες να περιμένουν την αφορμή για να γεμίσουν με ευχές! Καλή διασκέδαση!!
