DIY Heart-Shaped Cards
Wedding card to make
Using these in the kid's bags for daughter's wedding in August. The younger kids can make the bride and groom their very own wedding card to be placed in the big box of wedding cards. Gives the younger crowd something to do and makes them feel as if they GAVE something to the couple. Hope it works as planned.

Large and oddly-shaped heart
These plain white heart cards appealed to me because I could jazz them up and they came with envelopes. Well, the hearts are very oddly shaped (uneven) and large. It looks like Oriental Trading had a butterfly cut-out on card stock and figured out if they folded it in half, it would look like a heart and they sold it that way! Kinda' funny, right? I won't buy this product again -- will try something else.

The cards are of good quality, but the brand printing is on what should be the front of the card so you have to decorate what should be the back
The cards are of good quality, but the envelope is very thin and I'm not sure it will hold up in the mail. Also, the brand printing is on what should be the front of the card so the children have to decorate what should be the back of the card and then open it backwards which is confusing to very young children. If they wouldn't cut the card on the diagonal, then put the fold directly on the left side this problem would be solved. I guess it is done the way it is so they can get more cards on each sheet of card stock as they produce them.

opens the wrong way
The cards are made of good card stock paper but the oriental trading website is printed on the front. Not a huge deal but quiet annoying.

I bought these to use for myself for Valentines.

Ok, but not fantastic.
I bought these for a fundraiser selling encourage-o-gram cards. The heart cards were decent cardstock and there were no issues with discoloration. What I didn't like is that they are cut and folded oddly. Almost all of the cards have edges that don't meet up and overlap each other.

Ok for what they are
I had to buy in bulk and found that I was tossing out about one or two per pack due to sloppy cuts or folds. They were alright for what I was using them for, but I certainly would not use them for any fancier occasion or an instance where I needed to take pride in the product.

Great for the price!
These cards were perfect for my kindergarten class. There were two that were unusable due to tears and discoloration, but that still left plenty. The quality is not top notch, but for little kids it works well! They made cards for their families for Valentine's Day. Would buy again for the classroom.

Fun to Paint
Bought these for a Craft Night with friends. Had enough left over for my daughter and I to make Valentines for her classmates. I like painting them with irridescent paint, but they are fun to color with crayons or markers or glue jewels or ribbon on. It was fun.

Kids Had Fun Decorating
These are great quality at a great price. The only thing I didn't like is that they open on the side next to the point. When open it looks like and upside-down butterfly instead of 2 hearts. I would rather they open on the rounded edge to retain that heart shape when open.
They are cut out of heavy enough cardstock that none of them ripped as the kids were coloring and decorating them.
