February 14 is just around the corner, which means it's time to prepare your child (or niece, or neighbor's adorable kid) with some amazing valentines to bring to their classroom Valentine's Day party. Instead of stopping at the nearest CVS to buy the same Despicable Me or Frozen-themed cards like everyone else, opt for making your own. Although this sounds like it could turn into an absolute nightmare — glue in your hair, kids running with scissors, glitter in all sorts of crevices, etc. — purchasing a DIY kit will alleviate the stress of starting the crafting project from scratch.

The beauty of using a DIY kit to make valentines is that most of the work is already done for you. Seriously, these things are so user-friendly that they seem almost impossible to screw up. So if cutting and pasting are the extent of your crafting skills, or your audience is a little too young to appreciate a humorous store-bought card, here's a compilation of kits that will make the kids declare you Saint Valentine.
