One month until one of my absolute favorite holidays, whee! I whipped up these “Thumb-body Loves You!” Valentines as part of a Share the Love blog hop hosted by the ever lovely, Jamie of C.R.A.F.T. So if you’re jumping over here from DIY Show Off, “hello” and make your self at home!
As much as I love Valentine’s Day, I really really REALLY dislike conversation hearts. Blech. I’m not entirely opposed to sugar but if I’m going to eat those empty calories, it better taste good! They are super cute though and when paired with thumbtacks, make a great little gift you can give an office pal or teacher. Who doesn’t need more cute thumbtacks in their life?!
Making these is super easy and cheap, almost all the supplies were found at my nearby Dollar Tree. The hardest part is probably finding six conversation hearts perfect enough for the thumbtacks. Luckily, The Dollar Tree had four packs of sweethearts for a dollar! All you have to do is brush on a few layers of Mod Podge (or use a spray sealant) to protect the candy and then just superglue thumbtacks to the back. Easy peasy.
Print out the “Thumb-body Loves You” Free Printable and use spray adhesive to attach it to some foam core (also found at The Dollar Tree!) and that’s it! Insert the thumbtacks on the space provided on the card and then gift to “Thumb-body” you love! Yay for quick and cute valentines.
Now, hop on over to Lindsay over at Makely Home for her super cute “You Blow Me Away” valentines!
