It’s going to be a low-key Valentine’s day for us. I usually scheme up some big-ticket item I absolutely need to coincide with the holiday of love, but this year I didn’t even throw any major hints out there. Not even dinner reservations. I wonder if this means I’m getting old? I always thought it was weird when couples didn’t exchange gifts, now I’m one of the weird ones. Kidding, of course. I am just craving some at-home family time with my two loves, and I am looking forward to this evening.
I want to share the fun Valentines I made for Braylen to take to her class. I also tweaked the wording a little and made some for my class, as well. She was so excited about giving her friends play-doh. She said, “Mama, they will looovvve this! They will make them some shapes.”
I’d be lying if I didn’t tell you that I love this stuff. Seriously, I can pass on some things but Valentines for her friends at school? Not a chance. My excitement is through the roof. I’ve been looking forward to making cutesy-holiday themed things for B’s classmates since I signed her up for MDO this past summer. The fun has just begun!
If you’re wondering, I do realize how big of a nerd that makes me.
These were super easy to create. Just print the tag on an adhesive label, add play-doh and cookie cutters to a clear bag and seal with the label. I had to put together 32 of these and it took around 20 minutes. Not bad at all. The animal-shaped cutters came in a Play-Doh animal pack that I picked up at Wal-Mart.
Here are the actual images you can use to make the same Valentine’s. If you don’t have Photoshop, you can use a simple (free) site like iPiccy and add the text to the bottom. I printed mine on Avery square labels (22816).
I hope you all have a very Happy Valentine’s Day!!
