Once again, the Target Dollar Spot stopped me in my tracks! Right now they have pre-made valentines and the cutest things to make your own valentines!
In an effort to make more work for myself, I decided to completely make my son’s valentines this year! 😉 He still has no interest in this type of craft, so for another year, I get to make things that I think are adorable! I found the most precious colorful donut erasers and pencils at the Dollar Spot and knew they would be perfect for some FREE printable valentines. I had a vision of the donuts sitting in the middle of a little rectangular Valentine’s Day card filled with colorful text! I got pretty close to that vision. I’m no graphic designer, but I’m learning!
I created the FREE printable valentines on a program called Canva. I LOVE this program, and it’s FREE! You just log onto canva.com and create an account. I use it in tandem with Photoshop. They have a paid version, but for right now, the FREE one works great. It’s very user friendly, and I made these cards pretty quickly…for me! I decided to use colors like pink, purple, aqua, and yellow because they complimented the donuts really well and popped against the white cardstock background.
I placed a border around the cards to help define the edge a little more. I found a free graphic of a little donut to use for the “O” in the word “donut.” It’s hard to see it on here, but he has a sweet little face! It’s super cute.
Our printer was wasn’t working right, so I decided to have them printed at Staples. For less than $3.00, it was a steal! They did a great job. I cut them out myself just using a pair of scissors. The border created a straight edge for me to follow, so the lines are pretty straight.
I thought I’d be able to attach the donuts with glue dots, but they wouldn’t stick to the erasers. Plan B is a little better, but still not perfect. I used scotch tape to attach them. The donuts stick to the cardstock unless the paper is lifted and jostled a bit. To prevent the donut erasers from getting lost, I decided to put the valentines inside clear plastic favor bags that I already had. I could also easily include the pencils. I added a bit of pink crinkle paper and pink and white bakers twine to the packaging. I’m still thinking about a Plan C to stick the donuts to the cardstock. If you have an idea, PLEASE tell me in the comments! It makes for a pretty cute valentine! I’m just donuts about them! See what I did there. 😉
They are just too precious not to share, so you can find the FREE printable valentines at the bottom of this post. Just click on the image, print and cut them out, and you are on your way to making your valentines! Like I mentioned above, I got my donut erasers and pencils at the Target Dollar Spot, but I also found some cute ones HERE, HERE, and HERE!
