Love Bug Valentines

Home Paper Crafts


I’m fond of holiday artifacts that avoid using the expected go-to holiday symbol. So, Christmas wrapping paper that isn’t covered in Santas or reindeer, Thanksgiving decorations that don’t feature turkeys or Pilgrims, and Valentines that aren’t exploding with hearts.

In that spirit, these “love bug” Valentines by Danyelle of [dandee] get two thumbs up from me. Long after those cheesy store-bought Valentines have been tossed, the little plastic bugs that were attached to these bug-jar cards will remain on recipients’ shelves and desks. Danyelle has the jar card design available for downloading and printing, so you can make your own!
