DIY Valentine's Day Kissing Practice PillowRemember when you were much much younger and you’d never kissed a boy so you’d practice on a pillow? (Did guys do this too or was it only the girls?) Luckily I’m well past that awkward awful stage. However, that does not mean that I am not amused by these hilarious DIY pillows that are designed to help you practice kissing better – or for that very first time. These handmade pillows make a brilliant novelty homemade Valentine’s Day gift for that single friend you just want to keep in the game and in practice just in case Cupid decides to throw some love her – or his – way. Although if you’re gag gifting these to a guy, you may want to throw a little red on the lips to give the illusion of girly goodness. *wink* Learn how to make these via the tutorial by Emily Grace King over at Instructables.com.

Valentine’s Day is on it’s way, and for me, that brings back fond memories of receiving Valentine’s Day cards through elementary school exchanges – even from the boys you couldn’t stand or the jealous little girls who would knock you off the monkey bars on the playground. How long did we keep those silly little cards before our moms finally tossed them anyway? They were so prized because they were so much fun. Sentiment on Valentine’s Day is especially appropriate though, I think. But that doesn’t mean it has to be overly romantic or even mushy. They can still be fun just like when we were kids. I for one appreciate Valentine’s cards that are witty, raw and fun. They still possess a little romance, just in an unexpected way. Therefore I’ll be giving some of my favorite people handmade Valentine’s Day cards from Julie Ann Art!
The boyfriend, well, he’ll be getting a card assuring him that he’s my favorite thing to do. But if that’s a little too sultry for your sensibilities…
Then let your loved one know it’s just “you and me” with this cute card that features a heart engraved on wood proclaiming that your love is forever.
Or skip any hint of romance all together with a card that’s basically crap. Whatever you decide to say and however you decide to say it, Julie Ann Art has the perfect way to get your point across this Valentine’s Day. Whether witty or charming or just plain freaky, her fun and brilliantly designed 5 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ cards all come blank inside for sharing your own private message and are printed on quality, 80lb. acid-free white card stock.
Be sure to have fun with some of Julie’s other cards for Valentine’s Day as well with messages like “You’re my favorite boyfriend,” “You’re my favorite bedhog,” and “You’re my favorite baby daddy.” To view Julie’s full line of Valentine’s Day and other greeting cards, visit her shop online. All of the cards from Julie Ann Art are high quality, professionally printed cards featuring original designs by Julie herself that you’ll be proud to share with that special someone who drives you crazy.
What’s your favorite way to say “I care”?
