Playing-Card Valentines

Dressed for the occasion, these cards are great for dealing to friends en masse. Write the greetings on glassine envelopes with a no-smudge marker, or print them according to the following directions.

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Using a word-processing program, type 4 messages; size each to fit onto a glassine envelope, and stagger them a few inches apart on the page. Print onto a sheet of 8 1/2-by-11-inch paper.

  2. Step 2

    On the printout, center 1 envelope over each message. Using removable tape, affix the top and bottom edges of each envelope to printout.

  3. Step 3

    Using the manual feed on your printer, insert envelope-taped printout, and reprint. Remove tape. Repeat steps 1 to 3 to make additional envelopes as needed.

  4. Step 4

    Insert 1 playing card into each envelope, and seal with a heart sticker.

    Hi. Try ebay for glassine envelopes. I bought 100 New 2 3/4 X 3 3/4 for $8.45, shipping included. Woohoo! Clearbags charge handling fee plus shipping and totaled more than $20. Lisa

    Does anyone know what the little heart candies are in this same issue on page 127? I would love to find or make a recipe but I don't even know where to start. Thanks!

    just a heads up, u.s.statequarters.com has glassine envelopes, 100 for 6.90, that's including shipping. That was the best deal I found.

    There are plenty more online sources, this is just one of them... Good prices, too.
