A week of Valentine Ideas

Note: This post is sponsored by Creative Collection by Neenah Papers, but all opinions are 100% my own!

Valentine’s Day is Saturday! The last 3 weeks here on C.R.A.F.T. have been all about cheesy, awesome Valentine ideas, mostly for the kiddos. (Minecraft Valentines, anyone?!)  Today, I’m sharing a week worth of heart day cuteness that is perfect for your significant other! I made a cute small treat and hid it somewhere I knew Andy would look like the refrigerator, his car, or the bathroom! Andy got his week of love last week. Don’t worry, he’s used to celebrating all of the holidays a little earlier 😉

I used the Creative Collection Valentine’s Packs to make the cards for each of the treats. These fun little packages are a quick, but cute way to personalize Valentines! Oh and Creative Collection Valentine’s packs are available at select Walmart locations throughout the U.S.

Monday: You are the milk to my cookies! I used the kraft paper to make a tiny cookie card, and tied it to a bag of cookies. This little treat was hidden in the refrigerator so he would see it on Monday evening!

Tuesday: Neenah Papers has the cute pre made heart banners. The package comes with string, and red, bright pink, light pink, and withe heart cut outs. All you have to do is string on the hearts! I snuck out to his car on Monday evening and hung up a heart banner for him to see in the morning. I wrote a thank you on each of the hearts.

Wednesday: I used inspiration from this classroom valentine I made. Each pack of Creative Collection Valentine’s Packs comes with this handy dandy envelope template and envelope liner template! I used my free printable and the pink polka dot paper to make the card. The envelope is made out of the kraft paper

Thursday: i used another one of my pre made cards…. We go together like cheese and crackers card. I printed it out on plain white printer paper and attached it to red card stock for a little pop of color. I made a mini envelope out of kraft paper! This little treat was hiding in the glass cabinet, where he always goes right after work to get a glass of water!

Friday: On Friday afternoon, I hung up another cute heart banner on the front door. This one says: U+ rhymes with picture of cake+ R+ hearts+ smiley face. Put it all together and it says: You make our hearts happy!

And then hole punch and tie a ribbon or some rafia onto the package of gummi bears. Or staple.

Share the Love: Ahoy Valentine, you’re a real treasure!

Share the Love is in full swing and today’s free printable Valentine is “Ahoy Matey, you are a real treasure!” But not with Chips Ahoy, although I for one love chocolate chip cookies and that Valentine printable is adorable! (Check it out here!) Today we’ve got a non candy valentines idea with Pirate’s Booty… it’s also gluten free so it is a great option for a classroom valentine!

Ahoy matey’s! We are twin sisters Kristi + Kelli from Lolly Jane and are thrilled to be here to share an easy candy alternative for Valentine’s Day classmate gifts. Our littles who pass out treats in class get WAY too many sweets so we decided on small bags of Pirates Booty instead, (we grabbed a huge box at SAMS (or Costco) for less than $10 and there’s enough for their classmates, (24 count.) Plus, they gluten-free!

Simply print off our Ahoy tags (they say “Ahoy Valentine! You’re a real treasure!” with a space for your child to write their name), punch a hole in top the Pirate’s Booty and string bakers twine or ribbon through and tie the tag on. Easy peasy!

We’re going to be completely honest here, folks- we will NOT be investing this much ribbon that will get tossed in the trash for the littles. Simple bakers twine will do the trick OR just a staple. Done and done! 😉

We know there are some more girlie pirates out there so we’ve made the tags in 2 color schemes for you to print off! You can download a sheet of 4 (sized 8.5×11) in the red/navy combo or the coral/turquoise combo:
