Gem Eraser Valentines

Hello Crafting Chicks readers! I’m so excited to be here and to be showing you this incredibly inexpensive and Crazy Cute Gem Eraser Valentines. I live for Target and anything they have so when I saw these Gem Ring Erasers in the Valentine section for $3, I couldn’t resist. You’ll only need a few supplies and a few dollars to create these ‘gems’.

Hi. I’m Ali from Dream Crafter. (Hi, Ali)  And I have a confession to make. I am one of those people that takes down the Christmas decorations the day after Christmas and start putting up Valentines Day stuff. (Gasp!) Phew! I am so glad I got that off my chest.

I know. I skip right over New Years. I should be kicked out of the blogging world of super moms forever. But I just really love the idea of filling my house with a ton of girly frilly stuff since I live in a house full of boys. (Seriously, its 4 versus 1.)

When I found this cute paper on clearance at my local scrapbooking store I knew just what I was going to do with it. Make a love note garland!

love note garland

I love the golds, blues and just the right amount of corals in this paper. It is SO me. I instantly looked up how to fold paper into tiny envelopes. Turns out…its a lot harder than it looks. Don’t be deceived. I ended up using this tutorial HERE. After a bunch of wasted paper and three hours later…I came up with these babies.

yarn and cards

I decided to do about 12 envelopes and it was just about the right length. (My garland is just under four feet long.) Of course, this all depends on how you want to space them as well.

Once all my envelopes were made, I had to have some glittery brads to add to the fronts to hold them closed. Naturally.

brads

Once you line all the envelopes up in the order you want them, take a TINY amount of glue (from a glue stick and just put some on the top crease so when you string them on the ribbon, they don’t slide around.

I also made some pom-poms that match with some coordinating yarn I had laying around and strung those on some bakers twine. If you don’t know how to make a pom-pom they are SUPER easy. Just use the FORK TRICK.

Now use some washi tape or something cute to hang your love note garland up! (This is the time in which I wish I had a real mantle.)

Be sure to stop by Dream Crafter in the next few weeks to see how Valentines Day has, indeed, exploded all over my house. :)

dont-burst-my-bubble I was walking through Target and happened upon a box of bubbles.  I just knew they would make a great Valentine!

dont-burst-my-bubble-valentine-1

It was a box of 24 bubbles for just over $3.00 at Target, but here are some on Amazon as well if you wanted a larger quantity.  Go look in the party supplies and you can throw this together in no time. All you need is this printable, the bubbles, and some twine (or glue).  I love how cute they are and every kid loves bubbles.

 “SHARP!” Valentine Printable

I found valentine pencils and heart sharpeners to add to this valentine that goes along with the quote…I think you are really “SHARP!”  I made these to look like mini chalkboards.  So after printing, I left a small white border when cutting out the valentines.

After printing the valentines, I punched a hold on the top and bottom of the side to slide the pencil through.  I loved the sharpener affixed to the top…so the secret to that is a little hot glue.  You can peel it right off.

And you have some quick, adorable valentines perfect for classmates!
