Remember your grade school Valentine's Day Party? Putting your Valentine box out on your desk, walking around to each classmate's desk to deposit their little envelopes. And the best part, opening up your box and finding all those little love notes!

Purchase a box of those classroom valentines, found at nearly every supermarket and dollar store. Pick your favorite cartoon or design, just like you did when you were a kid.

Your "class" will consist of 10 people. You'll send one valentine to each "classmate", don't forget to sign each one so they know who it's from!

Extras: For a special Valentine's Day treat, send those cards that come with a candy surprise! Or maybe a sheet of stickers.

You can NOT mail them in the small envelopes they come with. Just put each one in a larger envelope, with or without its small envelope.

Swappers with 4.5 rating and above and newbies with completely filled out profile welcome. No one with no-sends allowed.

Can these be homemade???

JennaZ 10/24/2018 #

They can be homemade ONLY if you are not able to purchase cards near you. In the US there should be very few places you will not be able to find cards in stores.

I work in a Hallmark store. The ones we sell are a bit bigger than the ones you typically find for kids. Are these acceptable?

JennaZ 11/ 7/2018 #

@boandsully yes those are fine! You can be the kid in our class from the ritzy part of town!

boandsully 11/ 9/2018 #

@JennaZ hahaha!! Now I feel the pressure to come through! Ha!

Aww bummer. I would’ve loved to make mini Valentines cards! (I have waaaaay too many stamps/supplies to justify purchasing cards of any kind these days, LOL! Plus tiny cards are a fun challenge.) If you decide to do this again as DIY valentine cards, I will totally sign up. Sounds like a super cute swap! :)

I remember I loved this! I love this swap! Maybe if we get more people we can have a bigger swap?

faeriemail 12/13/2018 #

This swap is so sweet! I'm very excited.

RiverTopanga 12/26/2018 #

This is awesome! We adults take adulting too seriously... it will be fun to be a kid again for a while! THANKS!

BeHappyToday 12/28/2018 #

I got 34 Valentines ... hmmm what am I going to do with all the extras? :)

bluecrayons 12/29/2018 #

Behappytoday so did I. Mine came with stickers too. I’m thinking of sending a few extras to my partners.

ButterflyLover 12/30/2018 #

I just found some really cute googly eyed ones! I can't WAIT for this swap!

BeHappyToday 01/ 2/2019 #

@bluecrayons .. smile!.. sounds like a plan.. I think I will do the same and @ButterflyLover Googly eyes I haven’t seen those but sounds really neat & fun! :)

I wish I could sign up twice for this swap!!!

bb2 01/10/2019 #

I have new, old stock (1989 vintage) classroom cards. Would those be enjoyed and acceptable in this swap?

3stairs 01/10/2019 #

@bb2 I'd be thrilled to receive one!

JennaZ 01/11/2019 #

Yes, vintage cards are A-ok!

BrendaB 01/11/2019 #

Vintage cards would be awesome!

bb2 01/12/2019 #

Okay, Thanks! I'm in.

HeatherLynn0388 01/15/2019 #

Thank you!! I'm new to this site..I'll be looking forward to doing this!

aero 01/17/2019 #

Well remember what the teacher would say, you have to give everyone a valentine's card, lol

MissLatitude 01/20/2019 #

I’m hoping for a vintage one....how cool is that!

washingtonmaverick 01/21/2019 #

I have drug out my Valentine's, I have tons, so if anyone is interested in a private swap in addition let me know.

USAFwife 01/23/2019 #

I use my extras as lunchbox notes, bookmarks - even swap cards. :)

@cheapmomma3 is returning flaker and now a double profiler. Original profile of @loves2swap and has 36 - 1 ratings

Cobweb 01/28/2019 #

Ever have one of those days? lol My brilliant idea to print a nice neat label to identify the swap backfired and my sticker sheets got mixed up! ACK Apologies to my swapmates for the mishap. New sticker on envelope identifies the correct swap and explains the boo boo. Enjoy the goodies and the love anyway!

JennaZ 01/31/2019 #

I will be sending out cards to all of @cheapmomm3 s partners. Heads up, please do NOT mail to her if you have her address from before she was suspended. @astrodogg @Mantia @peaceandlove @MissAlissa @Drvr337 @jclark886 @Ace330660 @boandsully @lynnpinkdaisy @Pepsicola57

MissLatitude 02/ 4/2019 #

I got a card today from someone not on my list....and not the coordinator ???

ButterflyLover 02/ 5/2019 #

I am curious as to how many members decided not to add the name of the swap to their cards/envies. I think only one of them so far has had the name of the swap.

Ace330660 02/ 7/2019 #

I got a card from someone not on my list too. (STARMCCOY) Also I did send a card to cheapmomm3, before I saw she was suspended. Hopefully that does not matter too much !

JennaZ 02/ 7/2019 #

@MissLatitde we cleared this up, the swapper is on your list to receive from, but let me know if you have other issues

@Ace330660 That swapper is not in this swap. Perhaps it is a RAK or for some other swap you are both in

CaptHowdy132 02/ 8/2019 #

Just let every one know our swaps will be late we just got the internet back, thank you for understanding
