Valentine’s Day is coming up, and it is time to get to work on our cards!! This year, I had promised myself that I’d just BUY cards. I wasn’t going to make our own. Well…as you can see here, that didn’t happen.
Avery goes to school at a local aquarium, and we thought it would be fun to hand out ocean themed valentines! Well, we looked, and looked, and looked. The shelves were stocked with cats and dogs, baby animals, even bugs, but not a single fish or whale or shark to be found. So, I got to work!!
While shopping, I found some Sea Life toys on super clearance, and grabbed them to include in little goody bags! Then went home and got to work. I designed some simple but cute cards to go with the toys and then put the goody bags together!
-Under The Sea Valentines (You will find the links to print your own at the end of this post)
-Sea Creature toys (You can find these at toy stores, some dollar stores, or other big box stores)
-Clear treat bags
-Hole punch of scissors
-Any additional treats you’d like to include
I don’t think I need to give you a detailed tutorial on how to fill treat bags…but…Put everything in the treat bags, cut or punch a hole in the stop of the card, loop your string through, and tie the bag closed. Ta-Da!!! It took less than half an hour to put these together for Avery’s class of 15, and I’m feeling pretty good being ahead of the game (I’m usually working on this stuff the night before!!)Want to print your own??
