Octopus Valentines from

I wish I had thought of this sooner so there was time to order these adorable octopus valentines! Nevertheless, these cuties are worth sharing and may inspire you to stock up for next year. Behold, handmade octopus valentines. . .

$4 from Art of Marabelle

I want to be, under the sea, in an octopus' garden... The outside of this valentine card features a print of an original collage using vintage ephemera hand finished and decorated with gold leaf and glitter ink with the inside left blank for your own personal message.

These card designs are my original designs, hand-drawn or collaged, digitally finished, and reproduced with high-quality color prints. I make each card creativity with love & careful attention to detail: cutting, folding, and assembly by hand, and finally hand-decorating with gold leaf ink. It's unfortunately difficult to photograph the gold and glitter properly!

$5 from Heathen Co.

Item details:

- 10 inches tall
- 6.5 inches wide
- Heavy White Cardstock
- Center folded
$4.50 from Fancifone

Originally illustrated greeting cards.

I sent out Octopus Valentine's Day cards from Paper Source. They don't have them anymore, but they have a great selection of octopus items.

Thanks for showing off my octopus valentine! I LOVE vintage images with them and I'm always looking for more... and more ways to use them, like I did with my Octopus Girl (Squid Baby). Happy Valentine's Day! xoxo Mara
