My youngest daughter and I recently spent an entire evening creating and coming up with cute ideas for Valentine’s Day cards! These were so much fun and actually much easier than I anticipated. For you, they will be even easier as all you will need to do is print out what we have created to make your cards.
Today’s homemade Valentine Day Idea is a non-candy idea, which I’m sure many of you will love! You can buy silly straws at the Dollar Store for just $1 for 4. You can also find deals on bigger bulk online on Amazon.com. You can then print out these “Sip Sip Hooray” printables and attach to the straws. I punched two holes in them and then weaved the straws through.

Since I created these myself, they aren’t perfectly lined up! You will need to cut some of them down a little bit.
We tried both the thicker card stock type paper and just regular printer paper. Either one with work fine and I would just use whatever you have on hand to save money. Kids aren’t really going to care if it’s thicker paper so I’m fine with the inexpensive paper and it still looks nice. You can also buy smaller clear plastic bags from a craft store but I just bought a package of snack size bags from the Dollar General store for just $2 and folded these over. Again, the plain clear bags from the craft store will look nicer but kids aren’t going to notice the difference.
