This Valentine’s Day is a special one for Kaye. It’s her first time experiencing Valentine’s Day at school with her friends. She’ll find out what it’s like to exchange cute Valentines with her classmates. So I wanted to make a special one for her to hand out next Tuesday. I had extra bubbles from Elle’s birthday party so I created a Valentine’s Day card using the bubbles. I found these bubbles at Target, a pack of 12 for $2. But you can find these also in the wedding sections at craft stores.
You know me… totally simple but cute. So print it out and use it for your child’s Valentine’s. It is best if printed on thick (100 pound) card stock paper. And white card stock is the best since the font is really thin and the colors are light.
If you make something inspired by Simply Modern Mom, please upload pictures of it to our Flickr group to show it off to everyone. You may be featured on Simply Modern Mom.
To make this card just like mine, I made a little tutorial for you…
- The Bubbly Valentine’s Day Card (click on link to download the PDF)
- baker’s twine or other type of string
- double-sided small adhesive squares
- small hole punch
- tags (optional)
1. Once you download the card, cut on the lines to create 4 cards from one sheet.
2. Place the bubble on the card’s white space (left side) to get a feel for where you need to punch holes. Punch two holes for the strings to go through.
3. Place the double-sided adhesive squares in the middle of the holes punched in step 2. And stick the bubble to it.
4. Tie the tag to the bubble (optional) using baker’s twine.
5. String baker’s twine through the holes and tie a bow to keep the bubble in place. And done!
