Family Fun - Keepsake Valentines

In the United States, the first mass-produced Valentines of embossed paper lace were produced and sold shortly after 1847 by Esther Howland (1828–1904) of Worcester, Massachusetts.  We have a special exhibit of antique cards in our children’s area. Using them as inspiration,  we will create keepsake cards in honor of Valentine’s Day.
