Fun Valentine Cards for Kids

This week, I've made some valentines using some of our alterable products such as clear bags and tubes. There's a few for boys and girls. These are super easy to make and fun to give. They would work great for classroom valentines. If you have kids with food allergies, consider giving pencils for classmates. Take a look....

Soccer Field Valentine

For the soccer player, I used two colors of pencils and inserted them into our 1" X 8" Clear Bags. Two pencils fit perfectly. I stamped the net and soccer balls from the set, "Hitting and Kicking." I add grass and a phrase to the back and I was done!
Two green colors of pencils make a great field for this soccer valentine!

Score with this fun Valentine for boys or girls!

You're a Keeper Valentine

Another idea is to use our medium-sized Pillow Box and add Swedish Fill to the "lake." I used the set, "Goes with Summerset Beach Gal" for the background waves. The tag features images from the set, "Go Fish." I used Baker's twine to attach the tag. You could make this same valentine in a smaller size for little ones by simply using our small Clear Pillow Box.

The darker blue waves on the outside of the pillow box is made using our new Glass Effects Gel from Viva Decor. This stuff is soooo fun to use, but plan ahead. It takes 3-4 hours for it to dry! It's transparent and looks like water so it makes great waves for this valentine!

to add waves to the outside of the box.

Valentine Blossom

Make a bouquet of flowers to take in to school. Each flower can be a valentine to hand out! I used the 1" X 8" Clear Bags and added candies (Skittles or M&Ms work great). The stem is strong and holds any size flower up so I went big! I cut out a flower, attached to the stem. Added the Polka Dot green ribbon for the leaves, added a gingham bow. That's it. The stamp set, "Love Letters" was used for the "to" and "from" phrases. The butterfly is from the set, "Sealed With a Kiss."

Out of this World Valentine 

Use the Clear Tubes to make the body of a rocket. Add flames and a top and you've got a rocket! I used M&Ms inside the tube. I hand picked the colors to make the candies striped. The tag is made using stamp set, "Opportunity Knocks" and "Alpha Bold" for the phrase.

To add intensity to the flames, use Memento Lady Bug ink pad and brush it along the BoatHouse Collection(TM) Orange Tree cardstock using the Direct-to-Paper method. For added interest and texture, I stamped the blue top arrow section using an image from set, "Splash," too.

Add candies to our tubes to make these fun valentine rockets.

 Princess Wand Valentine

Every princess needs a wand so why not make wands for your valentines this year? Add pencils to our 1" X 8" Clear Bags for a strong wand. Then add a heart to the top and our pretty princess from the set, "Party Princess." Ribbon and rhinestones finish it off.
Use pencils for the wand using our 1" X 8" Clear Bags.
Adding bling for a Princess is always a good choice!

Hot Valentine 

This valentine is probably more suited for an adult due to it's "hot" theme. I think this would be cute to give to your significant other. I used the set, "No Limits" for the thermometer and then our 1" X 8" clear bags for the M&Ms. I first added the red candies then switched to white ones at the top to look like a true gauge. This is a fun one!

Use "No Limits" to make a fun valentine for your
significant other!

 Have fun making your valentines this year. We'd love to see what you make! Smiles, Bobbi
