Print your own cute glow stick Valentines cards!
You guys, Valentine’s Day totally snuck up on me this year. I mean I knew O’s classroom party was this friday but somehow it didn’t register that this was the last weekend before it and we have an unusually busy week this week. So I found myself on Sunday afternoon, quickly putting these together and assigning Aa the task of cutting them all out while O wrote his name on each one. And if you know me, you know last minute tasks are both not my style, and majorly stress inducing. And then, OF COURSE, my printer ran out of magenta ink on the LAST PAGE and then I replaced the cartridge and then it didn’t work and then I cleaned the nozzles and tried again and it wouldn’t print the paper etc. etc. etc. Why do printers always work totally fine until you really really need them to do something quickly?! Ugh. Anyway, I finally got the last page printed and we were all set! I thought I’d share the free printable with you too in case you need a quick Valentines card for your kids to take to school. These were perfect because I had a whole bunch of glow sticks leftover from Halloween in my closet so I didn’t have to get anything!
To make your own, download the free printable, there are 3 valentines to a page, print as many as you need (I recommend cardstock) and cut them apart. Then make two slits, one on either side of the heart and carefully slide your glow sticks through. I used 8″ glow sticks like this. Just be careful you don’t bend the glow sticks as you’re putting them through, if they crack, they’ll start glowing and burn out! Here’s the free printable, enjoy!
