One of the things I saw at the craft store the last time I went were blue, scalloped note cards.
I knew exactly what to make with them: the cutest Valentine for kids that I mentioned in the post about my 5 favorite Valentine’s Day ideas from Pinterest.
I’m not a fan of Valentine’s Day cards for kids that say “I’ve got my eyes on you!” or “I’m wild about you!” — I think that’s kind of creepy.
That’s why I love this idea so much. It’s so darling and clever, and who doesn’t like a bit of candy?
Cutest Valentine For Kids and Their Classmates
Buying the note cards made making these valentines so easy, and so inexpensive: I paid $2 for 12 notecards.
I also found 50 treat bags for $3.50, and Swedish fish. All set! Here is the tutorial and list of needed supplies.
Valentine for Kids Supplies:
- blue or turquoise, scalloped note cards or sheets of blue card stock
- treat bags (I bought the size 4 in x 2 in x 9.5 in)
- Swedish fish
- baker’s twine, or ribbon, or ties
The scallops obviously are mimicking waves — and I just cut the cards in half to fit into the bags.
If you want to get more Valentines out of this set, also cut the back and front apart to get four pieces out of one note card.
Then write “I’m glad you are in my school” on the card. You could also add stickers with that note on the outside of the bag.
Leave space for the fish on the bottom. I’m also going to have Landon sign all of the Valentines for his classmates.
Insert the card into the cellophane bag and add Swedish fish.
Close the bags with baker’s twine, ribbon, or ties.
There you have it: one of the cutest Valentines for kids.
I made 24 for about $9 in material costs (bags, note cards, Swedish Fish), and I still have 26 treat bags left over for other projects.
Pin now and make them later :)
