[MAKE] JE T'AIME VALENTINES

PHOTOGRAPHS BY SALLY J SHIM

I thought it would be fun to design some valentines for us big kids that want to spread some love to our friends and family. The two different designs come in black and red colorways. I love the black on neon pink.

One of my goals for this year is to express my love and appreciation more for the special people in my life. It doesn't have to be a big gift, but often a handwritten note can be the most meaningful. The Je T'aime valentines are handy because they can be used year round whenever you're in the mood for sharing some love. 

MATERIALS

1. 4.25" x 5.5" piece of cardstock 

2. Printer

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Download the Je T'aime valentines in black here or in red here or the Happy Valentine's Day valentines in black here or red here.

2. Print the valentine on to a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of cardstock.*

3. Write a message on the back of the valentine to a special friend or loved one.

* Please note if your printer does not have a borderless printing option, then set your document size to 4.25" x 6", but use a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of cardstock.

NOTE: The Je T'aime and Happy Valentine's Day valentines are for personal use only.

Hi Sally, What thickness cardstock do you recommend using for this project? Also, can you recommend a place to buy the cardstock paper? Thanks you so much!

PC // I use 80-110lb cardstock. I always buy paper at local shops because I like to feel the texture and see the colors in person. If you have a wholesale paper shop in town then that is where I would go (you can usually purchase individual sheets of paper and test it out before buying a large pack). I shop at Kelly Paper on the west coast. Paper Source also has a nice selection of colors. Hope this helps!

Thanks so much for this, Sally! I love both of these designs! I am printing them out to use in my Project Life, as well as for cards later in the year. Already made all of my Valentines:)
