Part of the appeal of collecting valentines is to display them. Longtime Valentine collector and author Katherine Kreider offers the following display ideas:
• Place the Valentine on a pretty piece of fabric or lace and frame it. If it’s a valuable Valentine, be sure to have it framed using archival, acid-free materials and protective UV glass.
• Transfer images onto paper to make cards and stationary, or fabric to make purses, clothing and home accessories.
• Decoupage cards onto wood, dishes, tin containers, lampshades, photo frames, etc.
