Was there anything better as a kid than a scratch off card? I remember hurrying to get the ones out of the Highlights magazine before my siblings to see if I could scratch off three red books in a row and win a free slap bracelet. They were the best when they were on a Mcdonald's cup or they came randomly in the mail for some kind of promotion for a car dealership or restaurant. The possibilities felt endless! What could be behind that golden scratch sticker? Could this be the time I put a penny to this paper, scratch away the sticker and come out a millionaire? MAYBE. Now, add that feeling of anticipation to the fun of opening and reading Valentines and you'll be delivering thrills to all of your lucky recipients!
We've seen different takes on adding scratch off sticker paper to Valentines around the internet and couldn't wait to try out this method for ourselves!
