Another Inspirational Valentines Craft to Make Yourself
Who said valentines were only red and pink? In bright colors, these Heartbreaker Valentines work great for boys and girls. So get out your scissors and stapler, because today, you’re tearing up my heart…..
Easy to make. Not sure about stapling this one though! If these are meant for small children, maybe sew the hearts, or paper-glue them. I should maybe also include a blank template, so you can add your own wording.
How-to: Seed Starter Valentine
Valentines Day is an excuse to show your appreciation for someone just for the sake of showing it. If you want to give your Valentine something unique this year, try giving them a seed starter that can later double as a votive holder.
mini mason jar
seeds for your Valentine’s favorite plant
coffee beans and/or small pebbles
glass adhesive, heart-shaped stencil
stiff bristle paint brush
small piece of cardstock
Clean the jar you’re going to paint with a little bit of rubbing alcohol and place your adhesive stencil. I used glass paint stencils for this project because they stick right to the glass itself.
Dab the glass paint over the stencil with a stiff-bristle brush until the stencil is filled completely. If your jar is see through, you can turn it around to ensure full coverage of the stencil.
Let paint dry completely before carefully removing the adhesive stencil. Remember, glass paint will air-cure over the course of three weeks and become dishwasher safe.
Now for the fun/messy part. Cover the bottom of your jar with coffee beans or small pebbles.
This facilitates the drainage necessary for seeds and plants. Mason jars aren’t necessarily the best container to start seeds in since there’s no drainage at the bottom of the container. Making sure to have pebbles/beans for drainage is therefore really important. I used coffee beans because coffee grounds make good fertiliser due to their high nitrogen content and because I had coffee beans on hand.
Next, add potting soil to your jar, leaving enough room for your seeds and the soil coverage they require. Check your seed packet to see how deep to plant your seeds, how many seeds to use, and how much soil to cover them with. My sweet basil seeds needed a decent amount of space, and 1/4-1/2 inch of fine soil coverage.
Give your seeds a good watering, but don’t overdo it! Different plants all need different amounts of water, but a good soaking is the first step to seed starting. Don’t completely saturate your poor plant. You first of all don’t want to be giving your Valentine a cup of mud as their gift. Secondly, a good rule of thumb – if your jar is see through – is to pour enough water so that just the soil is moist (not sopping) throughout with a little bit of water along the bottom with the beans/pebbles. My potting soil was really dried out, so I had to use a decent amount of water to get everything moist.
Finally, cut a little card out of some cute card stock and punch a hole in the upper left. Valentines are the one medium in which it’s totally okay and encouraged to make lame puns, so to round out this Valentine, I added “You wanna be startin’ somethin'” to the tag. You can, of course write whatever message you like inside if you’re not as much of an Micheal Jackson fan as we are. If your Valentine is completely lost when it comes to plants, you might want to also include some instructions on the basic care and keeping of seeds:
Tie your card to the jar with some embroidery floss wrapped twice around (once around just looked too thin to me), and secure it with a cute bow, trimming excess string from your bow tails. For easy transportation, put a lid on the jar, but remember to let your Valentine know that lid needs to come off asap to avoid a moldy jar of dirt.
PS: After the seed has sprouted and been moved to a bigger pot to thrive, you can clean out the jar and have a cute votive candle holder to last year round.

Kids Love to Give Valentines Cards to their friends
So we've created these cute avatar Valentines Cards. The idea is simply elegant. Click on the card image below, you'll download our files stored in a Zip file (simply extract the files). Firstly, print out the Valentines Day Card template, then print out the Kid Avatars. Now, help your child cut out the avatar that closely resembles the friend they want to send a card too.
Glue/stick the avatar to the front on the card, and your're done. We've left enough space above the small heart for a message or quote, and space below the heart for you to write the friends name, further personalising what is already a very personal, child friendly Valentines Card.
Absolutely Love This Valentine Dinosaur
Nothing to download here - Just wanted to include this for inspiration.
Check out your thrift store, find a cheap plastic Dino, spray Gold, stick on a few heart embellishments and give to your partner. So cute, and oh so easy to create. Although I haven't currently got a valentine of my own, I just might make these for my grand-kids.
It might not be the most romantic thing you’ve ever seen, but it’s almost guaranteed to make your Valentine laugh, and that’s what I’m all about. So if you want to make one, let’s do it! You’ll need:
Start by spray painting your dinosaur gold, and your hearts a Valentine-y colour of your choice (using the craft paint).
Let all pieces dry thoroughly, and heat up your glue gun. Starting with one heart, hot glue it to one of your dinosaur’s hands.
Continue gluing hearts, forming a small pile, until you’re satisfied.
The crowning glory is the heart that the dinosaur just couldn’t resist eating. Hot glue one right into his mouth.
That’s it! Seriously guys, this is Jurassic-style love. Happy making! xoxo
