  • Recollections kraft card and envelope (value pack) [Michaels]
  • Recollections Basic Bold 12″ x 12″ paper pad [Michaels]
  • Recollections 1 7/16″ heart punch (blue one) [Michaels]
  • yellow printer paper
  • green Sharpie
  • MS Word WordArt, printer, green ink
  • glue stick
  • pencil

OrganizationLove Pro Tips:

  • I glued down all of the hearts first, before gluing on the yellow circle
  • I chose purple patterns, but the paper pad has all kinds of colors – you could also choose black and white, rainbow, or any other color scheme
  • I draw on the stem, but I do it in pencil first and then trace over with green Sharpie

Caption Ideas:

  • Because there are already words on the front of the card, outer captions are not necessary
  • Inside notes:
    • Just saying hi
    • Have a great day
    • Love you

DIY Easy Valentine for Kids

DIY Easy Valentine for Kids

I happen to have a ton of pink paper and some plain white card stock, so I made some quick and easy valentines for my students.

I made a heart in MS Word (autoshape!) and inserted the words “you are just WRITE! Happy Valentine’s Day! Love, Ms. Savannah”

DIY Easy Valentine for Kids

Printed them out on pink paper and glued the whole sheet of paper (3 hearts fit on it) to white card stock using a glue stick. THEN I cut out the hearts. I had to bend them around the fattest part of the heart (horizontally) to cut two vertical lines – about an inch and a half – to slide a pencil through.

I bought a pack of 8 pencils for $1.50 at Target. They were hard to find last weekend when I bought them. I sharpened them and pushed them through the slits in the valentine.

This is how they turned out!
