Valentines Day Craft
Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite days of the year. I tell my kids I love them many times a day… but it’s fun to show them too.

I really wanted to put together something special for my kids for Valentine’s Day to let them know how much they are loved. I have a pegboard that my Dad made me for show displays and I wanted to use up some of my Valentine’s stash so this was the perfect project. This is what I call a “kitchen sink craft”… I used Valentine-ish thing I had!

Playing with the supplies on hand, I came up with some “washi cards”…

And the final card stamped with “THE DATE.” I wrote something I loved about each of my kids on every card.

I used punches, white and kraft cardstock, and stickers to embellish the outside of the envelopes.

All I needed was Glue Dots to secure the clothes pins to the pegboard. Glue Dots are pretty amazing!

To add more fun to the board, I cut hearts out of cereal box cardboard and painted and glittered them.

Once again, Glue Dots came to my rescue! They work great on cardboard and wood.

    So so so cute! And I have NOT seen those adorable clothespins at Target. I feel like I’ve looked through there like 10 times. Maybe mine doesn’t have them. :-(

    This is adorable and I’m in love with those arrow clothespins! I’ve neglected the target dollar bin lately. I’ll have to stop by tomorrow to show it some love and hunt for those clothes pins :)
