Vintage Valentines

I love Vintage images, and I love romantic vintage images even more :)  I wanted to share some vintage Valentine images with you. There are so many ways to use these. Consider making a Valentines garland for your mantel, or use them as gift tags for Valentine treats.

Here a vintage Valentine image is tied with silk ribbon and used as a place card setting. It really gives this Valentine table a special touch of romance.

How adorable are these Edwardian Children surrounded by pansies and a heart?

Vintage images can make just about anything seem more romantic, even a drinking straw :)

Consider embellishing your images with ribbon, glitter, or lace.

Even if your image isn't a pop up card like this one, you could easily make a stand for it, or place it in a small easel.  A display of several vintage Valentines in dollar store frames would make a pretty vignette

I hope you enjoy these vintage Valentine images and find lot's of creative ways to use them. Wouldn't these be so sweet for your kids to give to their teachers, or for you to give to your sweetie?  Please let me know if you find any unique ways to use these, I would love to post your artwork :)


  1. Well, now you have certainly inspired me. I'll locate my box I forgot I even had...full of vintage cards. I collected these from different locations over the years...Just Because! Now I can actually use them. Thanks for sharing!
