What are the most fun kind of valentines? The ones you make yourself! These cute playing card valentines are super easy to make and lots of fun too. They are easy enough for kids to make themselves, but perfect for grown-ups (especially those who love to play cards) too. You can usually get a package of two decks of 52 playing cards at the dollar store for only $1. We only used regular typing paper for our cards, but construction paper or cardstock will make a sturdier valentine.
