Pirate Valentine’s Day Printables

PIRATE VALENTINESMy boys love the Chips Ahoy cookies, and ask for them almost every time they see them at the store. Normally the answer is a no, but every once in a while I need a little something sweet, so I cave in. Since they love it so much, I thought it would be fun for my kindergartner to pass them out to his class for Valentine’s day and made these fun little pirate Valentines to go along with the cookies.

If you have a little pirate lover at home or have little ones that love these cookies as much as my kiddos, these will be fun for them to pass out to their friends. Grab your Pirate Valentine’s Day Printable and wrap it around a snack bag size of the cookies with bakers twine or string and you’re all set! I’ve also made a smaller version of the printable HERE.

DIY Valentine’s Day Foil Print

I was pulling out some of my Valentine’s Day decorations this past week and realized I how little I had. I’ll be honest, I have never been too worried about going all out for Valentine’s day, but this time I felt like there were parts of my house that could use a little more “love”.  I wanted to be a little bit more crafty with this one, and took out my Minc and started to come up with some different ideas. This print was one that stuck and it has been a fun addition in my house!

If you’re looking to add another decoration in your home, here’s what you’ll need:

Materials:

Valentine's Foil Project Wall Art

Start by turning on your Minc (I usually set mine at a 3). Print out page one of the XOXO Printable and cut out a piece of the hot pink foil so it fits over the letters.

Valentine's Foil Project 00

Place your foil on top of the X’s and stick it inside the foil transfer folders. Once it’s in place, run it through the Minc.

Valentine's Foil Project Part 01

Peel off the foil after it’s gone through and and put it back into your printer making sure it’s facing the right way so that it will print out page 2 of the XOXO printable.

If you’ve printed it correctly, you’re page should look like this. If you didn’t, that’s ok. It took me a couple tries to get this right…

Do another rough cut of your light pink foil this time and set it on top. If you’re adding the gold foil to the “hugs & kisses” this would be the best time to do it. I’ve found that putting it through the Minc as little as possible helps keep from distorting the foil that was there previously.

Once that’s through, peel off the remainder of your foil and stick your new piece of decor in a frame and admire it.

If you don’t have a Minc, not to worry! I’ve also made the same printable in color HERE. If you’re looking to buy a Minc, they’re available at Joann’s, Michaels, Amazon, and many other stores.

Hot Chocolate Valentines Printable

It has been a cold winter for us in Washington. Last week, it was so cold they pushed back school 2 hours due to ice on the road, and my kindergartner already starts school at 9:15. It was a crazy week, and all this cold has made me want lots hot chocolate. We love hot chocolate in our house and my kids get pretty excited to drink it whenever we have a chili morning. With Valentine’s Day coming up and knowing it will still be pretty cold, I thought it would be fun to put the two together! And as many of my printables, it’s easy to assemble.

 

Here’s what you’ll need:
-Hot Chocolate packets (I used the swiss miss 7.3 oz packets)

-Washi tape

Screen Shot 2017-01-16 at 9.10.31 PM1. When printing out the printable, make sure you DO NOT hit “Fit to Page” “Fit to Scale” in your printer settings when you print. This will throw off how you cut your printable and the print on the front will not be centered. Make sure you select “Actual Size”.

2. Cut down the middle of the page and fold it in half – for those of you who still remember the elementary term “hamburger style”.

3. After you’ve folded your print in half, unfold it and tape your hot chocolate at the top (and bottom if you prefer, mine stayed intact with just one) of the inside.

4. Fold it back up and tape it shut at the top with washi tape, and totally optional – place some washi tape at the bottom to give it a little extra something. And that’s it!

If you prefer to save some paper, I’ve also included a page of tags to print off and you can wrap a tag around a packet of hot chocolate with bakers twin or use the washi tape to put on the front of your packet.

Super Hero Valentine’s Day Printables

SUPER HERO VALENTINE'S PRINTABLES

JD has been so into Star Wars lately, I thought for sure he was going to want Star Wars themed Valentine’s cards. Glad I didn’t start making any, because when I asked him what he wanted to give his friends for Valentine’s Day, he said he wanted to give away super hero cards! I saw so many cute Super Hero ideas, and I loved the one with the sucker dressed as a super hero, I just knew I wasn’t going to have a lot of time to put that one together. I was rattling my brain for a candy that would fit with a Super Hero card, and the one that kept coming back to my mind were Pop Rocks! I loved those as a kid, and thought it would be they’d be a perfect pair!

The best part about Pop Rocks is that they’re super cheap at the Dollar Store – $1 for a 3 pack! Perfect!! It is seriously the easiest thing to put together. All you need is…

“Thanks a Bunch” Valentine’s Printable

VALENTINE'S THANKS A BUNCH TAG

How fun is this little Valentine’s gift? This is one of the easiest and quickest gifts to put together, and it still looks good enough to eat! 🙂 I saw these candy roses at Walmart the other day, and wanted to use them as a gift somehow. Originally, I thought this would be great gift to give to teachers (which is why you’ll also see “Thanks a bunch for being a great teacher” on the printable as well), but didn’t want to limited to just teachers, so I made sure to add a “friend” tag as well. This tags could also easily be attached to a bunch of real flowers, or if you can’t find candy roses like in the picture above, there are some great tutorials on Pinterest for Hershey’s kisses rose buds that would be pair perfectly with this tag.

I’ve recently been in love with some watercolor art lately, and thought I’d try my hand at it with this print. I’ve made them in two different sizes, 8×10 and 5×7. Its the perfect way to show some love this Valentine’s Day. Pick out a fun frame to stick this print in or spray paint an old frame into a gold one for some elegance.

Valentine’s Day Donut Banner

VALENTINES DONUTS BANNER

I’m keeping with a theme this week. First it was these cute Mini Valentine’s Day Donuts, then I did a guest post for the girls over at Eighteen25 with a Valentines Donut Printable (which I’m super excited about!), and now I’m finishing the week with this fun Valentine’s Day Donut Banner!

My husband and I just bought our first house and we’ve been living in it for 2 months now. We absolutely love the place, especially since we didn’t even see the house in person – that was super lucky! I do not recommend it! The house is a little outdated, in some areas but it’s something we can live with. One of those places is the fireplace. I will say this, one of the best features about our fireplace is that it’s gas burning and we love having moving nights snuggled in front of it. The eyesore of the fireplace, for me at least, is everything surrounding it… there isn’t much of a “fancy mantel” and hopefully one day we’ll be able to change that.

VALENTINE DONUT BANNER 2

But for now, I get to come up with different ways of decorating it with this Donut Banner. It’s a fun and playful way of displaying X’s and O’s throughout your house. Warning: it might make you hungry for donuts. 🙂

Easy Mini Valentine’s Day Donuts

mini valentines donuts

It has been crazy these past few months. We moved into our new home, I worked full time for the holiday season, and celebrated our youngest’s 2nd birthday. Now it’s time to get back to working on this little blog of mine.

We’re getting pretty excited for Valentine’s Day at our house. So yesterday, I decided to do something fun with my kids while dad was out of the house. These mini Valentine’s Day donuts are so easy to put together, my kids understood what to do pretty quickly, and they’re 5 (almost) and 2. The best part, you only need 3 ingredients!

Ingredients:

Package of Glazed (or plain) Mini Donuts – like Hostess or Little Debbie’s

Candy Melts – feel free to choose your favorite Valentine’s colors

Valentine’s Day Sprinkles

  1. Dip your donut into a bowl of melted candy chocolate.

2. Let any extra candy melts drizzle off of your donut and set on a cooling rack.

3. Grab your favorite sprinkles (look how cute those hands are! I know this picture is pretty much unnecessary but it was too cute not to share).

4. Sprinkle your hearts desire on your donut.

5. Let your donuts sit and dry off for a little bit until the chocolate has hardened. And you’re all done!

Super easy and great to do with your kids. The only downside is the clean up. Like I predicted, the sprinkles got everywhere, but it was totally worth having them do something that didn’t involve sitting in front of the TV or iPad!

What a perfect gift to give away for Valentine’s Day too!

“Be My Valentine” Cards for Boys

IMG_4195

I found out yesterday that my son’s preschool class was going to be passing out Valentine’s Day cards tomorrow. I was super excited and already had the Valentine’s Day cards I wanted to use. These ones…

Valentine's Card DisplayPrintable Valentine’s Day Cards

I had already cut the cards out when I thought to myself, “I can’t have my son pass out girly Valentines.” I already bought the hearts to go with the cards, so I looked on Pinterest to see if they had any Valentine cards that could use the hearts and be for boys. No luck. I loved all the mustache printables I found and was inspired to put mustaches and hearts together to create this cute little gem.

It was so simple and easy to put together (seriously a great last minute project!) I placed a small dot of hot glue onto the card, had my son place a chocolate heart, and we got 30 cards done! I can’t wait for him to pass them out tomorrow.
