Hello, hello! I had a very nice vacation with my family and am now fully back at work and in the swing of things. We didn’t take a trip or anything, just got everything at home in order, had lots of nice dinners with friends and family, we played a lot of Farkle and Monopoly and even staying up one night until 1 am (all three of us!) finishing the first book in the book series, The Hunger Games. It was phenomenal.. kind of harsh at times, but so good! All and all, it was a very nourishing time.
I wanted to pop in and share some valentines with you! My son is a creative boy and he loves all things Muppet, so naturally, when I asked him what sort of thing he’d like to do for his class valentines he wanted Muppets! It’s really no wonder since (if you remember) my husband and I have long loved them too!
I did a quick search at a few local shops and then a little online search to no avail. This always seems to be the case with his valentines. One year he wanted Ben10 valentines (this was before they had ever come out with them), another year, he wanted Happy Pets (I’ll have to dig up those files to show you!) and now, The Muppets. I find it hard to believe that they are not putting any valentines out there this year especially with the movie and everything, but the only thing I’ve seen are some vintage cards.
I was disappointed at first, but I am pretty glad it turned out this way now, because I’ve had a lot of fun designing these cards!
I decided to keep the cliche valentine sayings out of the actual cards and instead added the valentine-y part to the header. That way, the cards could really be used at any time of year!
We’re going to place the valentines into a simple little clear bags that I already had from Michael’s, then we’re going to add some kind of treat (perhaps Swedish Fish for Lew Zealand!) and top the bag with a cute header that I created to match (featuring Kermit!). I like these bags because they are big enough to fit a variety of treats wether you decide to do candy, small cracker jack toys or something useable like a notepad and small pencil or something.
Here’s a photo of Lew in the bag and with the header card but with no treats in the bag yet (still have to decide what we’re doing and buy those).
I made the headers coordinate with the cards, here’s a preview of them, there’s a place to write who the valentine is to and who it’s from.
So, here are the downloads for you to enjoy! I put them separately in case you only wanted the cards or, you could really only use the headers as well and just put candy in the bag sans the card. Whatever you fancy!
