Exchanging Valentine’s was always an exciting day when I was a kid. Not just receiving them on the day of, but the love and care that went into making them! As a kid, I remember choosing just the perfect box of Valentine’s from the grocery store. Picking my favorites to give to my best friends. Signing each of them and adding doodled hearts (oh wait, I still do the doodled heart thing!) ❤

Now, as a crafty mom, I love that my girls enjoy making their own Valentine’s, using stickers, markers, glitter and googly eyes! My 8-yr old had the idea to make paper glasses for all her classmates with the “spec-tacular” quote, but that proved a bit more challenging! So she settled for these cards we made on the computer and embellished after printing. Adding Stickles glitter glue and googly eyes gave these cards so much personality! We washi taped them onto mechanical pencils (a new fave amongst the 2nd grade trendsetters) and they’re ready to go! She was thrilled beyond belief to share these with her friends at school today!

Visit the Clicky Chick Creates Etsy shop to order yours today!

Or if you’re inspired to make any of these on your own, below are all the goodies I used to make them! My biggest tips to you:

  • When picking your papers, pick a patterned paper for your pennants (background) and a solid card stock for your letters.
  • Adding custom touches to your letters helps them pop – think heat embossing, dry embossing  for texture, glitter, hand faux-stitching and more!
  • If your letters don’t pop against the patterned paper, add a neutral colored shadow behind the letters to give them some pop!
