Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and these days that means something a little different than it did when most of us were kids. While store-bought cards with characters from books and TV shows used to be the norm, the major trend now is to get more personal and handcraft valentines at home. More and more moms and dads are helping their kids DIY custom cards to hand out to their friends at school, and there sure are some insanely cute ideas out there!

There are tons of cute card options at the store, since many of the big brands have hopped on the Pinterest train and tried to make their wares look a little more handmade. But for parents who truly want to make their very own cards from scratch, it can hard to narrow down exactly what to do. And it's even harder to keep coming up with unique ideas year after year. Luckily, CafeMom knows the struggle is real, and we're here to help.
