SugarBeetCrafts Valentines Day Cards Title

Hi Everybody!!

I hope this post finds you having a wonderful February so far. Can you believe Valentine’s Day is just around the corner already!?  This year is flyin’ by.

Have you ever wondered where the tradition of Valentine’s Day Cards came from? Well it has been rumored that the very first Valentine’s day card was sent by Saint Valentine himself. He sent it while he was imprisoned and waiting for execution by the Romans. It seems he was quite taken with a jailer’s daughter. And so just before his death he sent a letter and signed it Your Valentine.

The oldest known Valentine’s day card is kept at the British Library in London it is a poem written in French in the year 1415 by Charles Duke. He wrote it to his wife, while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London. I would actually love to see it, is amazing it has lasted this long.

So to celebrate this wonderful day of Love and Friendship, I decided to make my own Valentine’s Day Cards just for you.

I created 8 free Valentines day cards. Each one hand drawn and colored. They are great to print out and pass out to friends, teachers and loved ones or you can print them out punch a tiny hole in the top string them up and make a cool banner out of them.

Quick & Easy Felt Valentine’s Day Pins

 

Hello Everyone!

Can you believe it is already February? This year is flying by! Last year I made these awesome little pins for my boyfriends band, a cute little freebie to give away to people that came to the valentine’s day show.  They were such a hit I decided to share them with you.

They would be fun for a class project or a fun way to show your valentine’s day spirit at work.

The theme of last years show was “Wear your heart on your sleeve” so these little pins were fantastic.

You only need a few supplies:

  1. Felt Hearts
  2. A glue gun and glue sticks
  3. Extra felt (can be the same or different than the hearts)
  4. Small safety pins
  5. Scissors

Felt Hearts by Creatology, bought at Michaels Crafts.

 

The felt hearts can also be made with plain felt, I just chose to use these pre-made hearts because they have writing on them like the little candies, and they were really inexpensive.

To make the pins:

Cut up the extra felt piece into small squares.  You want to make the square smaller than the heart and small enough to fit inside the small safety pin.

Use the glue gun to make a small dot of glue, place an open safety pin down into the glue face up.

Add another dot of glue over the safety pin, add a small square and press lightly. The open part of the safety pin should be facing you. As seen below…

They are made out of old recycled file folders and index cards.
