Valentine’s Day, the ultimate romantic holiday, can be kind of a downer for people who don’t have a lover, husband, wife, partner. We hate that it leaves them out. Why can’t Valentine’s Day be more…ecumenical, which means, at heart, something general, universal, worldwide?

We’re thinking a dandy little heart made of folded money would make a nice valentine for just about anyone. It is curious and charming in low denominations —$2 bills being especially great. A folded $100 would provide some quirky romantic weight.

And it’s easy. There’s a fine, simple Instructables here.
