DIY Valentine Cards
Great value in make-your-own-cards
My daughter used these to make valentines cards along with the foam hearts and heart jewels and the cards were very easy and came out really cute. They are very inexpensive and the quality probably isn't up to the standards of serious handmade card crafters, but for our purposes they were just perfect!

The old adage is true 'you get what you pay for'. These cards look cheap and are cheap. Better off to buy quality construction paper and make your own than to use these.

not 4 x 6
These cards sounded great for us to use as photo folders for a school activity. When I received them, they were only 4 x 5 1/2 which made them unusable for our plans.
If you don't need the exact size, these would be nice for a project..

I bought these so my daughters could make their class Valentine cards. While I wasn't expecting anything so great, the white cards were so dirty they weren't usable at all and many of the cards weren't folded in the middle.

Good price for bulk order
Bought these in bulk for a men's event where they made valentine's cards for their wives. It was great price for the large amount I needed but I was disappointed with the quality. They were a slicker finish which made it harder to glue things on. Plus the color would scratch off a bit.

Altho they were inexpensive, these cards were not very nice. Most were folded crooked. The 3 year olds did not seem to mind, but I expected a slightly better quality.

Cards and envelopes are nice size and made for thick enough paper,but the inside of the card is a slicker finish and it took 2 whole days for ink to dry before I could continue making my cards. :(

You get what you pay for
I was really disappointed when I received this product. I shouldn't have been surprised, though, based on the price. I am into serious card making and the quality of these cards is pretty bad. First of all the card stock they are made of is rather "soft", meaning it leaves impressions from glue runners, from score marks, etc. Secondly, the color is merely printed onto gray thin chipboard. If you cut the cards in any way you will be left with the ugly gray core. It is hard to ink the cut edges because they absorb the ink so readily and the gray color just does not work. The last draw back is that the back of each card is printed with "orientaltrading.com. This bothers me, too, because i stamp my own "hand-crafted by...." on the back of my cards. This pre-printed advertisement for OTC gets in the way. I would not buy these again, and moreover, I am not using the ones I did buy.

Great for homemade cards
I bought these for Valentines Day and they worked out great. We made some with stickers, some with a 4X6 picture on the front and some with a cut out heart picture on the front. I would buy more because the colors are nice and it is a fun way to create custom cards.
