DIY Valentine's Day Cards

5 Materials
Make water color hearts and notes with inexpensive watercolor paints and watercolor paper.
Paint messy stripes or squares on both sides of the paper. Mix shades of pinks and reds or any colors you wish
When the paper has had time to dry, using a thin marker, go back in the blank spaces between the stripes and write a Valentine's day message.
Using a Fiskars paper cutter, cut the notes into squares. Then use the heart punch to punch out hearts moving the paper around to create mini abstract heart paintings.
I added a Dunkin Donuts Hibiscus Kiss Tea bag along with a note and a few hearts in each envelope.
No two notes or hearts are alike.
A sweet way to send a Valentine card and the cost is way less that a store bought card. And, you put your heart into making them!
