Love for your family, your friends, your kids, and your partners. It is a great way to revisit the depths of your love for any relationship and re-cherish them the same way!

DIY Photo Card Tutorial:
I opted for a sentence strip as the perfect envelope with my required width, but you can also use a card stock and transform it into the envelope. If you are using cardstock, by using the paper trimmer, trim it into the size of your photo card. Then fold it into half to make the envelope.
Punch a notch on the top by using the craft punch, here I have used these heart punches to give it a more appealing and darling look! So, yes! You can use a decorative punch too. Give then day of Valentine’s day I chose the heart-shaped craft punch.
Once you have made one side of the envelope all jazzed up, now by using tape, it is time to bind the sides of the envelope.
Start taping the two long sides of the envelope and leave one trimmed side open to slide in the photo card. Trim the excess tape using the paper trimmer!
Also, if you want to take things up a notch more, you can use colored tape too. Say red?! However, I have used simple white paper tape here.
On the open edge of the envelope, punch a hole and add the red ribbon to spice things up! Tie the ribbon a knot to keep it tied inside the punch hole. Now, it is time to slide in the photo card. In case your measurements have gone wrong a bit, you can always trim the sides of the photo card to fit perfectly inside the envelope!
Now, pick up your photo and glue its back with a colored card stock paper and transform it into a photo card from a simple photograph! I have used red card stock paper for the back of the photo, and it will look so pretty when you can spot it from the punched hearts. Some darling synchronized white and red combination!
