valentine_hedbanz HedBanz* has quickly become a family favorite at our house, so I made a Valentine’s version to play for Family Night this week. If you aren’t familiar with the game here’s a quick break down. You wear awesome plastic headbands that have a slit to hold the card. Without looking at the card you insert it into the slit, and then by asking questions you try to figure out what you are. Kind of like 20 questions. Only instead of 20 questions, you are racing against a timer. If you get it before your time is up you pick another card and keep asking until your time expires. Then it’s the next person’s turn. When it comes around to you again, you pick up asking questions where you left off before.

Valentine Hedbanz Printables

This would be a fun game to play at a class party. If you don’t have the game, I bet you could make elastic headbands, like the elastic hair ties only larger, and they would work just as well. Place the card between your forehead and the elastic to hold it in place.

The download contains 2 pages of cards, and 1 page to be printed on the back of the cards. Cause we need all the help we can get to keep us from cheating around here!


Check out my post on printing printables for answers to common problems. And, as always, I recommend printing on matte photo paper* for best results.

Do you love this playfulness of Valentine’s Day like I do?  I love to add a little fun flare to my Valentine’s decor and what better way then with GLITTER!


I decided the best way to do that this year was to add that fun sparkle to some plain white dishes, some in cute heart shapes.  I snagged some Elmer’s Craft Bond Glitter and got to work.


I followed all package directions and made sure my dishes were clean and ready to go. Applied the included glue, just a thin layer, and then let the glittery fun begin.


I shook off the excess glitter and then let the dishes set so the glue could dry completely before I did anything else.


Next, I took some Elmer’s Glue-All and put a thin layer of that over top of the glitter so that it would seal it in.  I don’t plan on washing these pieces in my dishwasher so it shouldn’t be a problem that way. If you are wanting to wash I would suggest hand washing.


Here a finished candy dish ready for gifting!  I love that pink sparkle!!



I added a cute little heart to one corner of this dish. I love the little cute surprise it is.


I used the fun hearts as jewelry dishes.  What a fun way to get a cute little piece of jewelry?  I love it!

What would you add glitter to to make your Valentine’s Day sparkle?



EEK!  We are so excited for today’s guest post! Jessica Sprague is our Photoshop hero and she’s sharing a super cute project, complete with a free download just in time for Valentine’s!

Hello Crafting Chicks! I am Jessica Sprague and I am so excited to be here today to share with you an adorable Valentine’s Day banner that I designed just for you. Click here to download a zip file which includes the printables for the project and a full color PDF of the instructions and some extra display options. You’ll have to unzip the file after it is downloaded.


First, gather up all of your supplies, don’t worry – you won’t need anything fancy.
• Premium Presentation Paper (PPP) or Cardstock
• Color Printer
• Cutting Board
• Scissors
• Foam Adhesive
• Tape Runner
• 1 1/2” Circle Punch
• Baker’s Twine

Second, print off 4 copies of the banner and one copy of the banner letters onto 8.5 x 11 PPP or cardstock.

Next comes all of the trimming and punching. Using a 1 1/2” circle punch, punch out the letters for the banner.


trimming-punching-4 Using your trimmer, trim the banners from each printout and finally, use your scissors to trim around the tabs of each banner.

Now here is the fun part – assembly! Place the dimensional foam adhesive on the back of each letter and adhere each letter to a pennant. Fold each tab down and adhere the back with tape runner or glue. You could also use brads to adhere the tabs to the back of the pennant or cut the tabs and sew the pennants together.String your pennants on bakers twine and you’re done!

I hope that you enjoy making this banner and it brings some Valentiney Love into your home!
