Need a last minute valentine idea? We've got you covered with part two of our DIY round up. You can catch part one here, as well as our news segment on Fox 11 showing off each project here. As always, stop into Creations Galore for more ideas, supplies, and help creating any of the children's valentines below.
Give a gift that promotes reading and learning with cute bookmarks. We added cute sentiments to strips of white cardstock, leaving space for a coordinating animal.
The cat and frog were created with a Cricut cartridge. We added a little Distress Ink to the edges and used a white pen to add some doodles. Don't have an electronic cutter like the Cricut or Silhouette? Shop Creations Galore for die cuts and stickers, or have your children draw their favorite animal.
2. Washi Tape Fun
Washi Tape is on our list of must have products. It's a great decoration but has practical uses too. It's similar to painter's tape, holding things in place as needed but doesn't leave a sticky residue behind.
Recreate this look with dinosaurs (Your Dino-mite), army men (Glad your in my troop), or other toys.
3. Treat Bags
There are so many occasions to use the small, clear bags we sell at Creations Galore. We've turned them into party favors, thank you gifts, and more. This time, we tried valentines.
We cut patterned paper, folded it in half, and attached it to the top of the bag with Scor-Tape. Simply write the recipient's name on the paper, and gift it with a smile. We took it one step further by adding the fun phrase and a star created with scrap paper and a punch from the Crop Room.
Recreate this valentine with goldfish crackers (Glad you're in my school) or other treat.
