Vintage Valentines

How many of you remember school Valentine’s Day cards coming in book form instead of a box?  The Valentines usually had movable parts and were often decorated with velvet elements. All of the Valentines were different, so you had to stop and think about your friend when you picked out the perfect Valentine for them. 

The Valentines had to be punched out of the book and often assembled.  Then the envelopes had to be cut out and glued or taped together. 
The process certainly took time and was very fun.  In a world without the internet and only 3 TV channels, getting your Valentine’s Day cards ready for school was something to look forward to.
