Bubbly DIY Valentine {Printable!}

2013 February 12

Here you are – and only 1 day left to make these before they get shipped off to school!

I based these off of another idea I found here. I like that they don’t have any treats in them. Which, aside from the obvious (no crazy sugar-powered children!), they are allowed at school. Since we are not supposed to send any food because of allergies, this one fits the “fun” bill as well as the “follow the rules” bill.

Things you will need:

  • Packages of small bubbles (I found mine at our party store – 12 for $3.00)
  • Lollipop/Cookie bags – clear or coloured (Mine are 5″ across, from your local craft store)
  • Cardstock or Photo Paper (1 piece per 4 cards)
  • Printer
  • Scissors/Paper Cutter
  • Stapler
  • This free downloadable printable (prints 4 cards per sheet of paper)

Print out the cards on cardstock or photo paper. They come 4 on a page. Cut on the solid gray lines and fold on the dotted gray lines.

Have your child write their name on the back in the space provided. I think this is good practice and also a good habit to get into. If they want Valentine’s treats, they should be willing to spend 5 minutes writing their name on the cards for their friends!

Now, put a bottle of bubbles in the bag. Fold over the extra at the top of the bag (or you can cut the bags shorter if they are too long). Staple twice on the bottom or sides of the printout, making sure to catch the paper and the bag.

YOU ARE DONE (already?!) – And your cards are at least 100 times cuter than the 24 in a box kind you can get for a dollar!
