Vintage-Style Valentine Card Folding Puzzle with Shakespeare Twist


- +


Bewitch your Valentine with this Victorian-style "puzzle purse." The card unfolds to reveal Shakespeare's sonnet 18 (Shall I compare thee to a summer's day) and a secret compartment for love tokens or notes. (The Victorians would often include a lock of their lover's hair.) Perfect for hiding an engagement ring - just an idea!

The outside of the card is a deep red-brown brocade pattern, tied with a brown organza ribbon, and it is shipped in a gift box for perfect presentation. When folded, the outside of the card is approximately 3 x 3 inches. The paper is text-weight, not cardstock, so fold it carefully. Here is a video of this card in action, in case you need help refolding it:
