How to Make V-Day Cards That Double as Garland (+ Free Printables!)

In a bind for what to send to your long distance valentine? Well we’ve got you covered. Send them a garland to show them how you really feel. I like your face. You are my favorite. You’ll always be my baby — shout out to our girl Mariah!!


– cardstock

– bakers thread

– envelopes

– washi tape

printable phrases


– scissors


1. Print or laser cut Valentine’s Day phrases. If you don’t have a laser cutter, you can just use an X-acto knife.

2. String onto baker’s twine.

3. Package in an envelope for your secret lover.

Yes, it is that easy!

Print and cut out your favorite phrases using an X-acto. We’re spoiled and have a laser cutter, so we used that.

Chose your favorite colored baker’s thread. We chose to mix our pearly pink letters with a bold purple thread.

Thread your words onto your string. Start with the end of the sentence, so the last you thread on is the first word.

I love you more than I love the ’90s. Um, yeah… that’s a WHOLE lot.


Carefully fold the words into an envelope. Tape the end of the string at the top to give your valentine an easy reveal.

I sent this valentine to my favorite person, Beyoncé.

Make a few to send out to your friends and then pin up the extras in your Ryan Gosling shrine.

Everyone has a Ryan Gosling shrine, right?? XOXO
