Our Super Easy Mustache Valentine Knock-Offs…

Speaking of the blatant theft of ideas…the moment I saw these Valentine’s in the Paper Source catalog, I knew my girls would love to make them! And being totally broke a do-it-yourself-er I thought for sure we could round up the supplies to make these ourselves!

We had colored paper, google eyes, and a couple of helpful paper punches. I found a heart template here which I printed onto cardstock and then used that cut out as a guide for all the hearts. I also found this great set of mustache templates here which we also printed onto cardstock and cut out for tracing guides. {fyi…her blog is super cute so go with there a some spare time ’cause you’ll get sucked in!}

The pirate eye patches and swords we made ourselves and the rest is super self explanatory. And I don’t think that Paper Source will mind as they have sold out of their kits for these! Plus…it’s a super amazing idea!

The girls loved making these. They made each one specifically for each recipient…which makes them so chock full of love and spirit! And, if I do say so myself, my girls give Paper Source a run for its money!

And because I adore a sweet blur photo…

Now I’m off to convince Layla that taking chocolate pudding cups to her preschool Valentine’s Day party would be just as cool as personally decorated heart shaped, homemade sugar cookies. *sigh*

Very cute and creative…especially love the pirate heart!

So adorable! Makes me wish I was in school so I had an excuse to make some.

Love these! Much cuter than the play old boring cards you buy at the store :-)

These are indeed super cute! And it is hard to beat a bit of blur :)

These are way cute!! And so much better than the boring old store bought ones!!

These are adorable!
And I think someone would be crazy to *buy* these supplies – how much more fun to diy!

This is the CUTEST Class Valentines Day card idea EVER!! We hand-made valentines day cards a couple years ago. NEVER AGAIN – my kids were the only ones in their class who had hand-made valentines and they were not too happy about that! Which made me feel like it was a waste of time. But I love this idea for family and friends – kids are home sick this week so we may get out some glue and google eyes over the weekend.

homemade valentines are the best!
