Quick & Easy “NO CANDY” Valentines – 2015 Edition

Lynda LaugavitzCrafts, Holidays, Kid's Crafts, Uncategorized, Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!

We posted many of these fun ideas last year – and have found more great ideas since then! You can see examples up close and in person on our “As Seen on Pinterest” display…between our craft and frame departments.

We’ve been “mining” the Pinterest boards for some of our favorite Valentine ideas that are Quick & Easy to make. How quick you wonder? Well, for several of these you will:

            • Print a card set
            • Cut out the cards
            • Punch a hole or two
            • Fasten on an item all quick-like with a rubberband.

They’re easy enough to figure out how to make them on your own, but you might want to double check our “As Seen on Pinterest” or “Seasonal” Pinterest boards if you’re stuck. We’ve shared our card bases with you in pdf format, and linked you to the other blog posts where you can find YOU RULE, Bag of Chips and Totally Nuts and the Captured Heart knitting pattern.

Print the files you’d like on cardstock, pull out the knitting needles or paint and you’re ready to go!
