I haven’t made Valentines in a few years, but thought it would be fun to get my daughter involved this year and make a few! Here’s how we made them:
Since it’s Valentine’s Day, I decided to use some pink colours. I spread some paint over a large piece of paper like so:
And then let my daughter to her thing:
Use a pencil to mark off how big you would like your valentines to be. I chose to make mine 3″ x 2.75″. I wanted to make them fairly small, just like the ones I would have given out in elementary school.
Next, we cut the valentines!
Every part of the paper looked different, so each valentine is slightly different.
Then, using a sharpie, I wrote some valentines messages on the front (examples include “xoxo” “be my valentine” and “you’re sweet”, but you can write anything you want!)
Then, on the back, I wrote “To:” and “From:”, just like the commercial valentines.
Now they’re ready to give out!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
