thumb print Love Bug Valentines


Claire and I made these adorable little Valentine cards last night. It really is such a simple project to make. Our first step was to use the cricut to cut out our tags. Now, if you don't have a cricut you could make simple rectangle tags- which really, would be a lot faster anyway! We cut two tags for each card, and made the red ones slightly larger than the white ones. Then Claire did her thing and stamped her thumbprint on each of the white cards. Then I quickly swept the cards away from her and put them on the counter to dry before she had the whole card painted red. (If you're doing this craft with a toddler, may I suggest that you cut a few extra cards. NOT that I would know this from personal experience or anything!)

I just added a little face, some googly eyes (because what kids craft isn't made better with some googly eyes?) and tied them with bakers twine and they were done. The red tags are perfect for writing your Valentine's day messages.

Happy Valentine's Day!

  8. Very cute! We're making some super duper Valentine's Day cards for my daughter's class. I'm enjoying the fact that she can make the cards by herself (for the most part).
