Here is a super easy Valentine we came up with the other day. All you need is some crepe paper and lollipops and you’re set. We added some “You’re my best bud” labels but these are sweet on their own too.
Materials Needed: Crepe Paper, Glue, Scissors, Tape, Lollipops
Step 1: Take a fold of crepe paper and cut out a stack of petal shapes with the paper grain going from top to bottom. Leaving a long piece at the stem.
Step 2: Stretch out the petals with your thumb to form a round petal shape.
Step 3: Take the sucker and add petals pinching them at the base of the candy.
Step 4: Continue adding layers of petals and add a piece of tape to secure them in place.
Step 5: Cut off excess paper beyond the tape.
Step 6: Cut off a strip of crepe paper for the stem and dap some glue on the end of it.
Step 7: Starting at the base wrap the strip around the stem and secure with a dab of glue at the end.
I remember buying these wax lips when I was a little girl. It brought back so much nostalgia to see my kids playing with them. Here is a last minute valentine. Just print out the designs onto cardstock and attach the wax lips and get ready to pucker up. Find the free printable right here.
Here is a sweet little homemade Valentine. It is great for kids because they can decorate the boxes. The materials are pretty simple. I had the matchboxes around from another project and then was inspired these awesome matchbox valentines by Brooke. They were easy to make and a fun little project.
When I spotted these gift mailers at The Container Store, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them (I love how inspiration might strike while you are looking for a kid’s thermos for school lunches). Who wouldn’t love to receive this pretty and sweet Valentine’s garland in the mail? It’s very simple to create, and really – no rules…….say whatever you want to say (I Love You, Be Mine, Love Is All You Need, or just X O X O X O).
Here is another Valentine’s Day Project! I made these giant Valentine posters 5 years ago and we thought it would be fun to put together another version that people could download. It is so easy, you just download the files and take it to your nearest Kinkos and print it out giant for $5 on their giant copy machines. I like the idea that these could stay up for a while even after Valentine’s Day is over. See all the instructions and details below!
Materials Needed: Download the images right here, Kinkos
Step 1: Download the six poster images and print out or else email the files to your nearest Kinkos.
Step 2: At Kinkos print out the images in giant poster size (each one should be about $5.)
Step 3: Fold up and give to someone you love.
