A Cute Valentine For Any Guy, Yay!

Do you have some boys or men in your life who are allergic to girly stuff?  To the dollar store with you!  Buy a pack of miniature playing cards!  Let's make a cool little valentine for a dude.  To wit:

Totally dudeworthy, right?

Also extremely cheap and simple to make.  Ready?  Here we go!


If you use ALL the RED face cards, you get six, yes, six spiffy valentines for one tiny dollar.

The two queen versions are beautiful, of course; give them to the lovely girls and ladies in your life.  But I particularly love the jacks and kings: the perfect GUY VALENTINES.  Full of hearts and red and white, but not girly in the least.

Oh, one more idea...if your guy likes things a little subversive.  Try something funny or offbeat from a pack of loteria cards.

Hee hee.  El Borracho es mi favorito.


  1. Totally dude worthy! I have gotten so many compliments on my "green" pendant with the neon chain. Thanks. WOW.

  2. Aren't you so clever...the perfect Valentine for a special King of Hearts:-)

  3. Love this...definitely making it...but a 'queen' version for myself...he he!

  4. Did you get the loteria cards at DT too? ;)

  5. Perfect for the macho boys in one's life!

  6. Awesome! What are Loteria cards?? Love a project for the guys! I have several decks of old've inspired me again!

    1. Hi, Danni! Loteria cards are a popular Mexican game, similar to Bingo. I find them at dollar stores in California and Arizona, but you can get them online. They have the cutest/funniest illustrations, great for crafting because there are so many cards in a pack. Thanx for the sweet comment!
