Since my preschooler doesn’t go to school on Thursday, he is having his Valentine party at school today. I realized this last night, and we still hadn’t started on filling out the Valentines. (I bought them weeks ago, but just put them away!) Last night we sat down as a family and everyone filled out their cards. I wanted to do a little bit more for the teachers, than just the Toy Story Valentines that my son had picked out, but I knew I didn’t have a lot of time, and last night I was tired! Before I went to bed last night, I thought to myself “if I have to, I’ll just use the Toy Story ones, and it won’t be the end of the world.” This morning when I got up, I thought “I bet I can whip some cut hearts out before he has to leave for school at 8:30.” I got out of bed and jumped on the computer and started Cricut Craft room, and before I knew it, I was writing these valentines out and gluing them together. It was so fast!! SO, you still have time if you need a quick idea! 🙂
Let me show you how I did these.
In Cricut Craft Room, using the free digital cartridge, Cricut Craft Room Basics, I chose the two different hearts, and put one on top of the other so I could get the sizes just right.
Then I cut and pasted one of them into a new layer, so I could cut them out of different paper. Once I had them all designed, I found my paper I wanted to use, and cut them out with my Cricut.
I grabbed my glue stick and stuck them together. I wrote the message, and then using removable glue dots, I put the candy hug on. These pictures aren’t too great because I had to hurry and get these in the back pack to go to school, but you get the idea, and for taking 20 minutes this morning, I think they turned out great!!
Now if I could just figure out something cheap or free to do for my husband for Valentine’s Day, I’d be set! What are you doing for Valentine’s?Linking up to some of these parties.
