Valentine's Day Blogger Exchange

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!!!

  1. I was so excited when I saw your valentine! Such a great idea. Can't wait to play with Cam. Course it'll have to be during nap time or little miss will try and help which means eating the hearts. :)

  8. Aria opened up yours took one look at it and said...I don't like this one. lol. Right to heart, huh? I'm not sure why because when we finished opening and taking pics I asked if she wanted to play with it and was super into it. She also wanted to take out all the confetti and make a mess. We played it over and over and over until mom had enough.
