Origami Valentine cards on tap
MIDDLEBURY —Valentine romance is in the air and the Sheldon Museum is offering two ways to express your love – “Folded Love” is a virtual origami Valentine card activity and “Love Lines” let’s you write a valentine sentiment that will appear in the Addison Independent.
Tell them you love them in more than words with an origami Valentine card. Start with the image of the vintage Cupid Valentine pictured here from the Sheldon Museum’s archives and fold it into an origami heart with your message inside. The Sheldon will provide an instructional video for creating the card.
“Folded Love” has two options:
Print-at-home cards ($10) — download a PDF of the Valentine to print at home with the card-folding video tutorial.
Mailed-to-you cards ($15 + $2 per additional card) — download the card-folding video tutorial and the Museum will mail you a printed Valentine card sheet to fold with an envelope for the completed card.
The deadline to order the $15 option is Friday Feb. 5 to allow for shipping time.
“Love Lines” allows you to surprise your Valentine — your spouse, partner, child, grandchild, pet, or secret admirer — by writing two Love Lines (limit 10 words per line) dedicated to them for the Sheldon Museum’s Valentine page appearing on the back of the February 11 Arts & Leisure section of the Addison Independent. Love lines will appear with a selection of vintage Valentines from the Sheldon Museum’s archives. Profess your love, write a romantic verse, or a thoughtful dedication — be creative! Each submission is $20 and must be received by Feb. 4. Submit your Love Lines here.
The Sheldon Museum, Research Center, and Museum Store are temporarily closed in accordance with COVID-19 restrictions. For more information and reopening updates, visit henrysheldonmuseum.org.
