Valentine Love {Pencil Valentine Card Idea!}

This past weekend making Valentine’s turned into a family affair.

While Johnny did most of all of his, I helped a lot of course with Gavin’s.

We needed to tie the two pieces together like this:

So Daddy helped Johnny out:

So he could get to the fun part of putting them on the pencils:

Do you make your own Valentine’s?


  1. Love those! We didn’t make any this year but Pie has made them in the past, it is fun to do with the kids!

  2. Oooo — I love those! What a clever idea.

  3. Kelly says

    That’s awesome that the family chipped in on the Valentines! How special!

  4. Love those! We just bought some from the store πŸ˜‰

  5. Candace says

    There is nothing I love more than home made valentines! They look great!

  6. Those are amazing valentine’s sometimes I feel like such a lazy mom! Great Job!

  7. Emilie says

    Nope, I was a horrible mom this year and we just bought them. I couldn’t even find any decent candy because I waited too long to go. πŸ™

    Those are awesome and I think it is cool your hubby even helped out!

  8. Jenny says

    Cute! We didn’t do Valentine’s this year. The thought never really occurred to me for some reason. We usually do make them though.

  9. Marilyn @ A Lot of Loves says

    We made special envelopes for our Valentine’s gifts but they were no where near as ornate as yours! Very impressive.

  10. Tammi says

    What a fantastic idea – and what a job!
    Good for you guys – I’m so impressed!

  11. Those are stunning! Yeah I make my own too. If by make your own you mean driving to CVS and letting the boys pick out their favorite. Now I feel like a slacker. πŸ˜‰

  12. That’s pretty much how it was at our house, a family affair. Mica signed his name to his Valentines, Daddy signed the kid’s names on them and I made heart cookies for them all, and put wrote their names in frosting.

  13. Those are awesome valentines! I have no idea where to start with making my own. We buy the boxed ones LOL!! Maybe someday I will venture into the world of crafting my own – I do love scrapbooking and this is not that far off. I love that your husband got into it too!

  14. Those are adorable and nice work getting Daddy involved!

  15. Crissy says

    those turned out great!

  16. Those are so awesome!!! We do store bought… Yours are much more fun and unique!

  17. You guys did an awesome job, they turned out so good!!!

  18. I love that they were homemade! A dying art.

  19. Connie says

    I love it!

  20. Stacie @ The Divine Miss Mommy says

    Jen these are awesome!! Can you be my kid’s mom next year on Valentine’s Day? πŸ˜‰

    No, we haven’t made our own yet. This year was my daughter’s first year participating in Valentine’s Day at preschool. I love that Daddy helped.
