Hi! It’s Jennifer from The Craft Patch and today I’m sharing some cute last minute Valentine printables. Last year I waited to buy Valentine’s Day cards until the night before my kids had their parties at school. BIG mistake! The stores were out of all the good cards and my kids ended up taking pretty pathetic ones to school. SO, if you’re in that boat this year, fear not! I’ve got really fun cards you can print right from home!
I found lip balm on clearance after Christmas for $0.25 a tube and bought 30 of them because I knew they would make the perfect gifts for my ten year old daughter to give to her friends on Valentine’s Day. Don’t you just love a good deal?
Here are the little valentine printables I came up with to accompany the lip balm:
- Core’dinations White Smooth Cardstock
- Red with White Polka Dot Washi Tape
- Fiskars Personal Paper Trimmer
- Free Printable DOWNLOAD HERE
Access the Valentine printables download on your computer by clicking on the above link, then clicking on the printer icon at the top of the page. I’ve pointed to it in the screenshot below with a blue arrow.
Using a paper cutter, trim the edges and cut the four cards apart.
Secure a tube of lip balm to each card using washi tape.
If you are worried the lip balm might fall off, you could add a dab of hot glue to the back of each one as an extra security measure. You wouldn’t want one to fall off leaving a friend without a lip balm!
Now all that’s left to do is hand them out to friends. If you don’t think the boys in the classroom would be happy with a lip balm valentine, consider giving them these super cool valentine free printables with their favorite figurines included. Happy Valentine’s Day!
