Remembering Romance with Vintage Valentines

By , About.com Guide

The Romantic Tradition of Sharing Valentine Greetings

- While handmade Valentine’s Day cards were in existence long before, the first printed paper cards made in the United States appeared around 1840.

- Stand-up cards with a base and several three-dimensional fold-out layers were popular from about 1895 until 1915, as were honeycomb paper puffs which opened to form bells, fans, balls, hearts and other shapes.

- While fancy vintage valentine cards from the Victorian era sell in the $25-100 range most often, depending on how unusual they happen to be, not all cards are that expensive. Cards from the 1930s through the ‘50s can be found for $5 or less, as can vintage Valentine's Day postcards from the early 1900s.

I love the "honeycomb" paper puff valentines! This one forms a "heart" bush or tree. So cute.
