Valentine Card Fronts – Freebie Friday

My favorite printer brand for many years has been HP. I also use their ink supply service where I pay a monthly fee and they send me ink cartridges as needed. It comes out to be a lot less money this way. The HP Envy Inspire is a great-priced machine that will produce beautiful prints.

And if you are looking for a great crafting weight paper for printables, I have been using HP Project Paper. It is heavier than copier paper but not quite as heavy as cardstock. It is a great medium weight for layering, folding, and more!

Freebie Friday – Valentine Labels

These Valentine labels have stained glass, watercolor, and alcohol ink appearances to them. Print them out on paper, cardstock, or sticker paper depending on how you plan to use them. They are great for a variety of different craft applications.

The card stock used for the card base is Basis in neutral. I am working with a pre-cut and folded card. CutCardStock has a ton of different colors of Basis to choose from. The colorful card stock comes from an assortment pack of Pop-Tones.

cricut maker

I used my Cricut Maker to cut the letters. Strategically aligning the colors, I was able to cut all the letters in one pass. I like to have a bit of additional security by using washi tape to hold the pieces in place when cutting.

The hollow letters actually leave behind another thin letter that can be used for another project.

With a bit of glue and attention to alignment, the card was easy to finish.

Layered Heart SVG

Create a layered heart valentine with this free SVG file.

with CutCardStock

For Valentine’s Day, I am making a layered heart valentine with CutCardStock. I chose to make the heart alone but you can alter the file in many different ways. Use it as part of a card. Or maybe you want to only use two of the layers. And with any SVG file, you can change the size of the file and the colors you cut them out of for a variety of different looks.

Many of the items I use in posts are provided by the manufacturers to promote their products.
A special thanks to those brands who sponsor this site. Some links are affiliates, thank you for using them.

I used three different card stocks for my project. The heart is made with layering Pop-Tone Razzleberry as the top layer, Stardream Metallic in Kunzite, and the bottom solid heart layer in Bright Silver Foil.

I cut the three different layers of cardstock on a Cricut Maker. I set the size of the heart to 5″ tall.

You can see how pretty those detailed layers are and they would work well individually as well as together. A totally different idea would be to use them as stencils.

Valentine Candy Boxes

Do your kids give valentines to their friends? I haven’t heard what our school is planning this year but I love making something special with my daughters for them to give to their friends. This year we made these cute paper candy boxes to hold Lindt Chocolate Truffles. What a special little treat, I don’t think anyone will turn it down!

Materials:

Special thanks to Cricut for providing the Maker making this project possible.

Directions:


Download the free SVG file linked below. I was able to get four on one page.
The black lines cut and the red lines need to be changed to score.
 


This is an example of the cut file. Turn the design away from yourself, place the two pieces with the hearts together, take one of the other side flaps and place it over the heart shapes to hold the box together. Insert the Lindt chocolate and finish closing the box.


Yum!


Yeap, we made a lot of them. 


While the boxes were complete, for my youngest daughter, we made a heart tag to place on top.
The Maker wrote the words and then cut the shape.

If you would like the SVG for the heart you can download it here. [heart tag]

Heart Boxes

This is an example of the sixty some odd heart boxes we made for Valentine’s Day. Who were the lucky recipients? Kids in my daughters’ classes and their basketball teammates. What was inside? Those famous lip balm balls everyone is talking about, a mustache whistle and a valentine gumball. Some boxes were filled with spritz heart cookies as well. We had so much fun making them, we worked in a production line fashion. This was from last year. This year, we need to come up with something similar to place those yummy Lindt Chocolates into. That post will be coming soon.


A few more of the boxes finished. 

Materials:

  • Valentine-themed scrapbook paper
  • personal cutting machine (I used a Cricut Explore Air 2)
  • or scissors
  • free svg file or free printable template (both are linked below)

Special thanks to  Cricut for providing the Cricut Explore Air 2 in order to produce posts similar to this one.
