Valentine’s Folding Cards

Want another Valentine’s free printable?  Sure you do!  This time, we’re sharing fold over cards.  If your kids have a Valentine’s party to attend, we’ve got you covered with a few cute (though I’m biased) tag printables.

If you’re looking to dish out candy, Nuts About You! tags are perfect.

Click the link, print, cut along the tick marks, and fold along the dotted line.  Grab a bag of cellophane bags from the craft store (mine are 3 1/4 inches square when closed).  Fill with peanut M&Ms (or another nutty treat), close, and staple the card over.  There’s plenty of room for your little one to write a message to their friends.

If you don’t want your kids hopped up on sugar, give stickers instead.  If your kids are anything like mine, they love three simple things: balloons, bubbles, and stickers.  Any stickers.

Here’s Sticking With You, the girly version:

Or, we’ve got blue for a more boyish look.

Same routine.  Print, cut, fold, staple to the package.

I couldn’t find stickers I liked, so I designed and printed my own.

But I had a problem.  I printed the stickers on full label sheets.  So I cut the designs out.  Now I had to package them.  A piece of wax paper cut to fit inside the same cellophane bags became a perfect backing for the home-made stickers.  Just peel the label backing off, stick and seal.

I happened to have a mini stapler with orange staples, so I used that.  Seriously, mini + office supplies = adorably irresistible.

You can make your own stickers to go with, too.

Print on full label sheets, then use a ruler and utility knife to cut apart, keeping centered between designs.  Or, buy a big package at the store and divide up on wax paper sheets for a quick and sugar-free gift.

What Valentine’s cards have you given?  Store bought?  Hand made?  Candyless?

P.S.  This is the last Valentine’s project we’ll share.  Pinkie swear.

    1. Thanks, Kim! Hopefully my boys think the same thing. 🙂

      Hi Irene! Glad you’re liking the Vday posts!

      Hey Liliana, Thanks! I’m glad they’re a hit.

      Hi Emily! Ya know, I don’t have a 14 year old boy around, so I have no clue what they like. If you’ve got ideas, I might be able to whip something up…

      Thanks!

  1. I can now cross “get valentine stickers” off my list! You are so talented!

    A 14 year old boy (which I happen to have:)) would like:

    A sticker stuck on a DVD
    A sticker stuck on an i-tunes gift card
    A sticker stuck on a $5 bill (or if you are a high roller, $10!)
    A sticker stuck on an assortment of candy.

    They might not see the sticker, however. 🙂

  2. Amanda, these are the cutest things ever! Hooray for “boyish” Valentine’s Day treats (I have two about the same age as your guys.) Thanks so much for sharing. BTW, I guess you mean a label sheet that is just one whole sheet, not cut into labels already?

    1. Hi Melissa! Thanks! Vincent is already counting down the days to his Valentine’s candy. Haha.

      Hi Chic Tweaks, Thanks so much! I like that they’re not getting sugar. 🙂 And they go nuts for stickers. I thought about making a bubble card, too, but I thought teachers wouldn’t like puddles of bubbles over their floors. Haha. Thanks so much for sharing with your readers!!

      Hi Jay! Glad you can put the stickers to use. 🙂 And I’m cracking up about your 14 year old ideas. That seems completely accurate. 🙂

      Hey Michele! Aww, thanks! I had to make something boyish. Too many hearts and pink for my guys. And, you’re exactly right about the label sheets. Look for full sheets at office supply stores. Then just print as you normally would and cut apart. To be honest that’s the biggest paint because they’re on the smaller side.

      Thanks again!
      Amanda
