Do you have friends or family who would be sweetly surprised if you made an effort to learn something in Hungarian? Even though Hungarian is a tricky language, you can learn a few phrases and surprise your family or a special friend. You don’t even have to be Hungarian to have fun with these folk art valentines!
Below there are a few greetings…appropriate for any time but inspired by Valentine’s Day ~ Bálint napot.
You can print these out on paper or card stock and color them with markers or colored pencils or crayons. We like the look of the colored pencils and they are more forgiving! If you print them out on paper, you can trim them and use double stick tape and add them to a nice colored piece of cardstock. Or just print them out on cardstock.
You can also use these images as inspiration for other folk art projects. You can use transfer paper or just practice tracing over these until you get a feel for the design and then make it your own. We used some of these designs for our rubber stamp craft project.
