Plug in to make valentines virtually

+UPDATED Jan. 13: Last year, we made more than 200 Valentine’s Day cards for local clients of Meals on Wheels, who are living alone. And we did it all remotely.

Plug in at Robbins logo

This year, the hope was for an in-person card-making event on Wednesday, Jan. 19 at 7 p.m., but an increase in Covid has changed those plans.

All in-person programs and public seating in our libraries have been suspended for January. Attending virtually means that you will need to come to the Robbins Library and pick up your materials and then drop off your completed Valentines so I can deliver them to Meals on Wheels. I hope you will join us for virtual card-making. 

Working with card stock in different colors, handmade and patterned papers, stickers, hearts and a glue stick provided in the card-making kit, you'll create 6-10 unique Valentine cards for clients of our local Meals on Wheels. 

All you need are a pair of scissors, tape and paper or plastic to protect your work surface.

Optional items include:

  • paper images and cut-out words
  • lightweight items like thread, sequins, buttons, glitter 
Registration is required, as audience size will be limited to 20. Pick-up details for the card-making kits are included on the registration page. 

CardsAll you will need to provide are any additional materials you would like to use. We’ll provide scissors, tape and/or glue sticks. Registration is required, as audience size will be limited to 20. Tables and chairs will be spaced to adhere to physical distancing guidelines. Attendees must also wear masks.
