easy Valentines with a free printable

 

 

You ever have one of those days that you just kinda feel ‘blah’  for no reason at all?

Well that’s the kind of day I’m having. Cranky, snappy, need more caffeine, could really use a back rub, and maybe even a big piece of chocolate cake.

And, I should probably apologize to Brandon too! I was telling him about my idea for this printable and he tried to make a few suggestions. All of which I pretty much shot down and told him he was a big ‘ol stinky, hairy-legged boy that had no clue what he was talking about and I should have never even mentioned it to him in the first place…because what did he know? Big dumb boys; always trying to help us out when all we wanted was an “oh that’s cute babe’.

UGH!

But since Valentine’s Day is coming up I guess I’ll apologize and keep him around.

Speaking of Valentine’s Day, I came up with an easy way for Lexie to share a treat and a Valentine with her classmates; and it has nothing to do with chocolate. (Because this year, all the chocolate is mine ;) )

 

If you’d like to make your own you’ll need:

  • bags of microwave popcorn (1 for each Valentine)
  • scrap book or construction paper
  • scissors ( decorative if you’d like)
  • double sided tape or glue stick
  •  FREE printable from TeamDuncan :)

(The links for the fonts I used are at the bottom of the post)

 

 

First measure your bag of popcorn, I used mini bags and they measured 4 1/2 inches wide. Then cut your scrap book or construction paper according to your width and the length you desire. I cut mine long enough to wrap around the entire package, but you can cut yours to fit only the front if you’d like. Secure the paper to the bags with double sided tape.  Print off the printable, then cut them out slightly smaller than the front of your bag. I used some decorative edged ones, but if you don’t have any don’t worry. Attach the printable to the front of the bag with double sided tape or your glue stick.

You could also use a Valentine sticker on the back to secure the paper if you’re wrapping the entire bag. Also, if you don’t have any paper you could still attach the printable to the bags and they would be just as cute!

I’ve got a few more easy Valentine’s treats to share so stop back by next week and see what Lexie and I have come up with!

p.s. stinky-hairy-legged boys are good for something after all….Brandon helped me make the printable available to share. He still needs to learn to keep his mouth shut though, and double sided tape isn’t working for that!

Come on and join the discussion!

  1. This is really cute! Thanks for the fun ideas! :)

  2. I love this idea. Such a cute and poppin’ Valentine to give ;) I plan to feature it in the very near future.

  3. Great idea! And I have a serious addiction to fonts, so thanks for posting those too :)

    • Caroline, I LOVE fonts too, I have found several that I would love to have, but I refuse to pay for them. So I’ll hunt for some that look similar and then of course find more that I love too ;) I like mixing different ones together, like the subway prints etc.

  4. I am having a hard time opening up the printable. How do you open it up if you don’t have winzip? Please help!

  5. I just opend the download and it doesnt look like the picture. The fonts are not the same and there is no hearts. What can I do to get it to look the same?

    • Hi, Jodi, sorry for the inconvenience. If the fonts are not installed on your computer it will not look like the ones listed. They are free and take seconds to install. (All the links are in the post)

      If you cannot get it to work, please email us and we will send you a file using pictures rather than the text files. :)

  6. This is such an adorable idea! I’d like to use it, but I had the same problem of the document not having the cute font! I installed the fonts on my computer, but am still not able to find those fonts when I open and try to change it in Word. Can you tell me what I’m doing wrong? Or, could you just send me the document with pictures? Thanks so much!!!

    • Hi Heidi, thank you for stopping by :) I would be glad to send this one to you, just send me your email address and I can send them your way :)

      • I’ve been searching for mini popcorn Valentine ideas and love yours the most! Thank you. I installed the cute fonts but am also having difficulty with them showing when I download your printable. Would you please email me the document with pictures? THANK YOU!!!

  7. Hi! I love this printable and would love to use it for Valentine’s Day! I, too, am having trouble printing it, even after installing the fonts. Could you please send me the document with pictures?

    Thank you!
    Michelle

  8. I love the printable and would love if you could email me the pdf.
