Kids Valentine’s Day Cards 2015

Love is in the air! My kids always get excited to pick out their Valentine’s Day cards for their schoolmates. This year Annabel decided to go with a “Paris” theme. (The same theme she’s using for her 7th birthday this weekend. Stay tuned for all the details!)

I ordered her this adorable printable tag from the Etsy shop, Confetti Fete. Ooh la la!

I found these cute Eiffel Tower pens on the Oriental Trading website and then Annabel picked out some heart candies to complete the Valentine’s gift bag. I found the black and white ribbon in the $1 bin at Target.

Daniel wanted to design his own card this year. He sketched out a Valentine’s city scape with colored markers on white paper. I scanned his artwork and resized the image to fit four on a page. Then I printed out copies on white card stock. He cut them out himself and added a small heart bag filled with a lollipop and some chocolate kisses. Xoxo. All done!

Pop Tip: You can find the clear treat bags from the baking section of any local craft store. I buy these in bulk, in a variety of sizes and designs, and use them all the time for party favors, birthday gifts, holiday treats, snack bags, etc. They are awesome. Keep a bunch of baker’s twine or colorful ribbon handy and you’re all set!

Happy Valentine’s Day! (Now I just need to get Hubby to take these extra chocolates to his office or I’m in big trouble.)
