Love is in the air! These quick cupid’s-arrow valentines can find their way into your friends’ hearts on Valentine’s Day. We used pink straws, but any color will do. It’s easier to write a message on the valentine before sliding the paper onto the drinking straw. And when it’s not Valentine’s Day, use the same method to make a striking birthday card.
