I’m LAFFY About You Valentine with FREE Printable makes for a great Valentine’s Day gift idea!
Hello there! It’s Katie from The Casual Craftlete blog. I am so happy to share my first post of the new year on The Crafting Chicks. I thought I would start with a super fun Valentine’s Day project to kick things off. I created a I’m LAFFY About You Valentine with FREE Printable because who doesn’t love a cheesy Valentine? That’s what the holiday is all about, right? The colors are so bright and fun! This Valentine idea would be great for the classroom at school.
This year my daughter is in preschool and I needed to come up with a Valentine to give the kids in her classroom. Laffy Taffy candy is one of her favorites, so I thought I would create something around that theme. I started by designing a FREE Printable tag which you can download later in this post. I choose the colors from the Laffy Taffy wrappers and I have to say, I love the bright colors. They are so fun and grab your attention. Next, I took a white berry basket that I bought at the craft store and painted it with the same colors as the printable tag. I just made organic brush strokes all over the berry basket. There is no right or wrong way to paint it. Then I took a Q-tip and dipped the ends into black paint and made dots throughout the paint brush marks. This would be so fun for your kiddo to do.
To download the I’m LAFFY About You printable, just click the link below. I recommend printing on matte white cardstock. There are six of the design per printable. You can download and print as many as you like. All printables from The Casual Craftlete are for personal use only.
I used a tag punch to punch out the printable. Then I used a hole punch on the top of the tag and tied baker’s twine through the tag. You can use any punch or simply cut around the image. It’s totally up to you how you use the printable.
Thank you for letting me share my I’m LAFFY About You Valentine with FREE Printable. Hope you have a Happy Valentine’s Day!
