18 Ideas for Homemade Valentine’s Cards

, , Leave a comment

At some point, Valentine’s Day cards (especially for kids) became all about the puns. Perhaps a pun helps to make such a passionate holiday less awkward for unsentimental people, or people who’d like to say ‘I love you’ but are too shy to be serious, or just people who love puns. Whatever the reason, puns make writing homemade Valentine’s cards much easier.
