Kinsey, Brielana and I participated in a Valentine's Day blogger exchange this year and I have had so much fun crafting it up. Kinsey has been the best helper and I got to get lost in a cutting-assembling craft, so life is good ;)
Kinsey has been on a letters kick lately (yay!) and to further that natural curiosity I figured we would make Tic-Tac-Toe valentine's (and also because X's and O's= kisses and hugs!) I also lucked out when it came to having materials on hand, Aunt Cindy had just sent us a boxful of scrapbooking supplies and ribbon and Valentine's themed paper was included!
I cut down the 8.5 X 11 printed sheets into four's until I had the desired amount (we made 20) I did the same process with the white paper but cut an extra inch from the top/bottom and sides so it had a patterned paper border. We typed and printed our Valentine's message and glued, glued, glued.
And because I have an
obsession healthy appreciation for my laminator, I sent the valentine's through for protection and to act as a "white board", just write then wipe! You can use anything for the X and O markers (I purchased jeweled hearts from the Dollar Tree but I saw the cutest erasers at The Dollar Spot that would have worked great. And there's always candy!) just make sure there are two distinct colors/patterns for distinguishable game play. And there you have it: Tic-Tac-Toe Valentines!
And here are the adorable Valentine's we got:
Nothing is as special as receiving letters in the mail. But the best part is opening them. And then eating them!!!
