We usually had Valentine's from a company called Lillian Vernon (that I think since has closed) and we would order check Valentine's from them. The valentine's would look like checks and you would make them out to everyone in your class. They were a huge hit. Well, one year my mom had forgotten to order them (or they were late being delivered) and we had to go to the store the night before and sift through the valentine's boxes that were left to the last minute. Choices were slim and we were down to one small bin at the grocery store. I had VERY few choices and had to get Beetle Juice valentine's cards. :( I was SO embarrassed to take Beetle Juice cards to school the next morning, but it was either them or nothing. I'm sure it was all in my head, but I felt like everyone was looking at me funny. It scarred me for life.
So naturally, to this day, I like to make cute Valentine' Day cards, well in advance. Here are my Valentine’s Day cards I made this year for my coworkers and friends! They say “Sip-Sip” Hooray, It’s Valentine’s Day with a crazy straw attached. I love them!
