You know how we love our quick crafts around here! Today we bring you some valentines you and your child can make in about two minutes flat. Homemade valentines are a fun project, and result in a more heartfelt card than the heavily branded, cheap cardboard ones you can buy at the store. Because you made them yourself, you know they’ll be gender fair!
- Cardstock or blank cards (we like the variety packs from craft stores)
- Stickers (we used the $2 foam stickers from Joann’s that they make for every holiday — you’ll find them right up front with the seasonal items)
First, select the paper or cards you are planning to use. A variety of colors is fun, or you could use a uniform single color.
Select your stickers! Stickers take the drawing out of card-making, which is good since drawing isn’t our forte. However, if you’re good at it, then by all means, rock on.
Adhere your stickers to you card,
Consider a little drawing, like turning these hearts into balloons!
And there you have it! A stack of homemade valentines…
…ready for addressing to your best friends.
