A quick last-minute Valentine gift for the kids


What do my kids need more than anything these days? Money!! Here's a cute way to make a gift of cash for Valentine's Day.

Still on the origami thing . . .


This video shows how to fold a heart out of any denomination dollar bill.  I've used a five, here. It is super easy to fold. Took me all of 3 minutes from start to finish. I've secured the center fold with a foil-wrapped chocolate heart (using a loop of tape on the back of the candy heart. Crisp bills work best.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I know you don't always post on weekends but I checked today and WOW! a great idea for a Valnetine's heart. I have had NO cash for weeks so I had to borrow a one dollar bill from my daughter so I could try this out. It is lovely...and now I will give back her one dollar bill!

This makes a really nice Valentine's Day card, in lieu of buying greeting cards. Your daughters and son are lucky you remind them of your love this way.

Hi Alice,
happy Valentine's Day! I loved this idea, in place of buying a Valentine card, which would just get tossed out after a day. I also thought a bunch of these hearts, made from pink construction paper, or red Christmas paper would be cute in an envelope.

I hope your day is filled with love!

Hi Patti,
Thanks. When I was about 10, I was really into origami. It's a fun and quick craft. And paper can be as cheap as the recycling pile, for some projects!

Have a happy Valentine's Day!

Hi YHF,
I agree! A greeting card may be held onto for a day or so, and then tossed. I used ordinary envelopes for these, and left them at each kid's place of the table this morning.

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
