Happy Valentine's Day!
This box reminds me of my childhood. In elementary school, my teacher would set a decorated box on her desk so we could fill it with Valentine's for our classmates. Each student in the classroom would give everyone a Valentine's card. Sometimes they were homemade cards, but the ones I loved the most were the store-bought shaped cards that were punched out of a sheet of card stock. Once signed, they were put in thin white envelopes and a name would be written on the envelope before it was "mailed" in the classroom box. It was fun time for each one of us. I still have the Valentine's card that my first grade teacher made for me. She made one for each of her students. It was a velvety red paper cut into a heart shape. She glued it onto a white paper doily and glued her picture on the front. It made each of us feel so special. I don't know if school children still create and give Valentine's. Do you know? If not, it's a sad thing that they don't have the opportunity to experience such sweetheart fun!
Do you remember making and giving Valentine's as a child? Do tell!
