A few years ago I made this same valentine as a paper craft card for friends and family, and it showed up in some mailboxes sans eyeballs (they’d fallen off!). The other day I decided to recreate it as an eyeball-safe card to share with you and your valentines! The PDF download below includes two folding cards to print on 8.5 x 11″ paper (letter size). It’s for personal use only, but you smart cookies already knew that!
Valentine’s Day is for friends, family, kids… and yes, couples. Hands down I think the best part of any holiday is the hunt to find the perfect gift – something that’s equal parts surprise and want, personal and sweet, useful yet slightly extravagant. Not everything has to be clichéd hearts, boxes of chocolates, and red roses you know. So it’s lucky for us that Uncommon Goods has helped everyone out by amassing a fantastic selection of Valentine’s Day gifts for you, your love, and the both of you to enjoy together! See all of their available gifts right here.

FOR HER: A Love Birch Cuff with a sweet heart cutout that will make her think of you. // A Gold Astrology Necklace of her sign to wear every day. // A Personalized Stump Ring with both of your initials.

I’m obsessing over this Valentine’s Day bunting from Hank and Hunt! It’s modern and abstract and completely unexpected. I just need to locate some glassine bags and I’m ready to rumble.
