V-day Quickies

Can you believe we've only got just one more day before Valentine's day.  I'm ready for it to be here and gone.  After planning, shopping, and prepping for a school party I'm just about done with Valentine's Day.  Bring on St. Patties!  However, I had to sneak in just one more V-day post.  If you are still looking for a really quick idea here are a couple I whipped up this morning.

If you've got some guitar players in your family like I do, the guitar pick valentine just might be the perfect thing.  You can very easy turn a guitar pick into a heart, here's how...

Grab a pick and then with a pair of really sharp scissors just cut a small little notch out of the top.  That's it!  Now you have a cute little heart pick to go on your card.  And, I must admit, I didn't come up with this idea.  My hubby is the one that thought it up.  (I love that he sometimes thinks the same way I do!)

As for the mazes.  I made these for my kids at church.  They were super easy and really inexpensive.  You can buy a package of 6 heart shaped mazes at Walmart for only $1.

So, there you have it... two really super easy, quick, and inexpensive Valentine's ideas!


P.S. Step 3 for our cookie sheet calendars is coming, gotta get the school party out of the way first, so stay tuned.

Cute idea! Thanks!

What are the mazes glued on to? It looks to thick to just be card stock.

Amy said...

Vicki, they are just on card stock. Nothing fancy.

Love these cards. Did you paint the back of the cards red? Or only the edges?

Thanks, Kerri

@kerri - Thanks! I just inked the edges with some red ink. Super easy and quick.
