Vintage Movable Valentine Day CardsI thought I would share with you more of my cards, this time from my Valentine's Collection.

These cute little cards are from the 1920 and each one of them has an element that you can move. These are in surprisingly good shape considering little fingers probably played with them a great deal.

The secret to their movement is that they are put together with very small split pins (also called round head fasteners). 

I have been looking for this small size and haven't been able to find them yet but the larger size split pin doesn't take away from the charm when you reproduce them.

Print these out on card stock they are wonderful to give as Valentine Cards, to use as tags or use in your Valentine displays.
