Handmade Valentine Cards: FREE Printables

Valentines Cards - handmade activity for kids from waddleeahchaa.com

Each year we make handmade Valentine Cards for family and friends. Last Friday, I shared some of the ideas I have been collecting on pinterest with my kiddos. They picked their favorites and we began stitching away.

We aren’t quite finished but I thought I’d show you a sample before Valentine’s Day has passed.

Beware . . . we even have Minecraft Valentines ahead . . .

Supplies

We began our Valentine Card activity with a big rainbow stack of felt and some bling, bling, bling:

  • felt heart stickers from Hobby Lobby
  • sequence
  • beads
  • buttons
  • Miss Enigma already has her eye on the bling!

Step 1: Cut Felt Card

  • We cut the felt sheets into fourths.
  • They fit perfectly into a 4×6 envelop.

 Step 1: Plan a design

  • The kiddos went to work playing with the materials, making different Valentine Designs.
  • We did a lot of playing and manipulating before we began stitching.

Step 4: Stitch the Design Together

  • The inexpensive felt hearts with the peel and stick backing made stitching these handmade Valentines much easier!
  • Miss Enigma actually stitched on the large pink heart and added a bit of sparkle to embellish her Valentine design.
  • We have done several stitching art projects so the kiddos pretty much took off on their own.

Nothing says Happy Valentine’s Day more than a love-struck Minecraft Creeper?

MacGyver can seriously make anything. Recently, he has been making his own stuffed fish animals. Then over the weekend he sewed-up a little dinosaur. He does all of this without any patterns. Hence, one of his other nicknames is Edward Scissor Hands!

Be Mine!

He quickly left me in the dust on this little Valentines project. He immediately figured out how to make Minecraft Creepers for his boy cousins. Behold, a face only a Minecraft nut could fall in love with.

Shhhh, don’t tell . . . I’m even working on a Valentine for My Man of Steel.

I do live such a blessed life with my little family! On Valentine’s Day we’ll celebrate with our annual Family Valentines Celebration. The kiddos are busy planning for our little celebration. We keep things simple but it’s just one small way that we show our love for one another. Next week, I’ll share a bit about our simple Family Valentines Celebration.
