[MAKE] VALENTINE'S DAY HANDMADE CARDS

I admit I've gone a bit Valentine's Day crazy over here, but I have a few more projects I want to share with you. Here are some simple + sweet valentines you can whip up for your friends and loved ones. There are four different valentine designs and my favorite thing about these valentines is you can let your creativity run wild. Add a little bag of sweet treats, paper punch shapes, cupcake topper that doubles as a cute little paper flag, photograph, balloon, or fabric heart. 

I always keep a stash of clear self-sealing bags handy. You can add candy (I found those heart candies here in Busan, but you can find something similar here) or heart sprinkles. I love making little paper flags to put on top of gifts of add to a card using a strip of washi tape.

You can also add a heart balloon using a bit of washi tape. I love paper punches and used a tiny heart punch and hole punch to create the card on the top right. The bottom left valentine was made using this Martha Stewart punch and the bottom right is a fabric heart similar to the ones I made here.

[MAKE] YOU ROCK! VALENTINE

PHOTOGRAPHS BY SALLY J SHIM

For J's valentines he found some chocolate rock candy and wanted to give some to his friends. We thought the phrase YOU ROCK! would work well with the valentine design. This design is far from the traditional red and white valentines out there, but it definitely appeals to my 9.5 year old boy.

[MAKE] TIC TAC TOE VALENTINES

PHOTOGRAPHS BY SALLY J SHIM

This year I got a head start on the boys' Valentine's Day cards. (Thanks to my bum knee and doctor's orders to take it easy.) For j's classmates we decided to recreate one of our favorite valentines, the Tic Tac Toe Valentine. Over the years I've received many requests to make this valentine available as a printable and last week I finally got around to redesigning it.
