The Idiot’s Guide to Valentine’s Day

Dear boy readers with sweethearts, if you only ever do one project from this blog, do this one. (Preferably print this on Wednesday at work, because Valentine’s Day is on Thursday.)

Dear girl readers with sweethearts, you might be surprised by how much your admiration and praise melts even your manliest of men, so you should do this too.

You may have heard of something called the Cost to Income Ratio. Well, this Valentine will net you many many more times what the two sheets of paper will cost.

Here’s what to do:

  1. Print this.
  2. Fold the card in half, and then in half again. Sign it.
  3. Fill in the hearts using the handy little prompts.
  4. Cut the heart paper into six cards.
  5. Tape the cards in places your sweetheart will find them on Valentine’s Day. Like this:

And this:

Or this:

Even if you’re not into Valentine’s Day cheesiness (maybe especially if you’re not into Valentine’s Day cheesiness), you can make someone feel awesome with just a few minutes and some kind words. (Most of the cards could also encourage a coworker or friend.)

Happy Valentine’s Day! 

PS: Here’s last year’s Valentine Printable too…

  1. I love so very much the idea of words of affirmation scattered around the house – – I think you just answered the question mark in my head about what to do for Mark in terms of a Valentine’s Day “card.” (That’s usually the extent of our gifts.) Thank you so much for sharing!
