I saw this lovely little Valentine  here as the Freebie of the Day and thought how this would make such a great Valentine for friends.  It’s unexpected, creative and fun.  If you’re feeling extra crafty you could create your own template or make  one that any kid can share with classmates.  To go beyond Valentines day, this would be a lovely little item for a shower or birthday party too.  To create some valentines of your own visit here.
