In these strange times, it’s not a bad idea to spread some love this Valentine’s Day with a heartfelt message. And what better way to pass thoughtful and loving sentiments to your friends and family than with homemade Valentine’s Day greeting cards?
Of course, you can always dash to your nearest supermarket or convenience store to get a batch of greeting cards in one go. But with many of us spending more time at home due to lockdown, why not go the extra mile and go DIY with your Valentine’s Day cards?
At The Paperbox, we offer a wide range of greeting card supplies for virtually any occasion. But if you’ve never been the artsy type or don’t know the first thing about cardmaking, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered with these templates and ideas for your Valentine’s Day greeting cards.
For the Cheesy Pun Lovers
Let’s face it, who can resist a cheesy pun on the cheesiest day of the year? This playful Valentine’s Day card is a fun reminder to your significant other that they’re your perfect match.
To create this DIY Valentine’s card, order our white, ivory, or cream cardstock and print this template using any inkjet or laser printer. You can also write the words with a coloured pencil, marker, or crayon for that truly personal touch. You can also use stickers for the hearts. Fold the card in half and tuck it into one of our red envelopes.

This Valentine’s card template is sure to give the bacon-lover in your life a good chuckle. Use any reliable printer you have around or get to work crafting with crayons and coloured pens. For best results, you can order our A5 Barely Blush Matte Card Blank and & Envelope to get this exact look.
Finish your masterpiece with a kraft envelope (which goes well with the blush background) and a wax seal or self-adhesive disc.
For Your ‘Lobster’
“See? He’s her lobster!” — Phoebe Buffay.
Fun fact: Lobsters mate for life, which is what makes this Valentine’s template from Canva so delightful. Sure, the crustacean doesn’t exactly say “romance,” but with a little art and clever writing, you’re sure to tug at your significant other’s heartstrings.
This Canva template goes well with our white cardstock — the perfect backdrop to make sure the design’s colours and illustrations pop. Feel free to change this template’s colour palette, starting with the turquoise borders and fonts. Just make sure you limit your palette to no more than two colours to maintain a cohesive look.
You can also add graphics, icons, and speech bubbles to add more character to your DIY Valentine’s card.
A Reminder for Your Loved Ones

This greeting card template is a cheeky reminder to your loved ones that they’re in your thoughts this Valentine’s Day. It’s perfect for your significant other and even your friends and family members who are away from you and need a good chortle — after all, laughter is the best medicine, right?
Just remember that when printing coloured backgrounds and large image blocks, you’ll want to use our white cardstock to make sure the colours look their best. Printing on coloured paper may cause your design’s colours to clash with your background.
Start Crafting Your Valentine’s Day Cards
Crafting Valentine’s Day cards by hand will take time and a few basic supplies. But making a dozen cards (enough for your immediate family and close friends) shouldn't take more than a few hours. Better yet, why not make it a fun activity for the entire family?
