Tornado Valentine with Printable


My oldest son is obsessed with natural disasters, he is just fascinated by them.  Since this is his last year of doing class valentines (insert sad face from me, I'm not ready for him to be in middle school next year:(....) I thought it would be a good time to do a valentine that had a tornado on it.  He made these 100% himself (after I designed the printable) and I think that they turned out great.

Boys Homemade Valentine- Pokemon Pikachu Valentine with Printable


This post contains affiliate links. 

When my son found out that I was going to make some Pokemon valentines for my other son, he immediately wanted some too.  But he didn't want to have the same ones as him, he wanted to have some with his favorite Pokemon, Pikachu.  Since I love coming up with fun sayings and making valentines with my kids, I said yes.  I knew that I wanted to make some kind of candy into a Pikachu, but I didn't know exactly how to do that.  So I decided to do it the easiest way, I made a printable for him. I love how they turned out, they are so fun and cute and I can't wait for him to give them to his class.

Homemade Valentines- Ring Pop Valentine with Printable


This post contains affiliate links. 

My favorite part about Valentine's Day is coming up with fun valentines for my kids.  I like to make them with my kids each year and come up with something that they love.  My daughter loves candy, but her absolute favorite candy is ring pops.  She just loves them, so I thought it would be a perfect thing to have her hand out for Valentine's Day.  So I made up a fun saying to go with them.

DIY Denver Broncos Shirt- How to Cut Flocked Heat Transfer on a Silhouette


Disclosure: I was given product in exchange for this post, all opinions and content are 100% my own. 

We are big football fans at our house and we were pretty excited about a certain team winning last weekend and making it to the conference championships, so to celebrate I made my husband this awesome shirt.  I did it for the Broncos but you could do it for ANY team, football, basketball, baseball and even a local team too.  That's the fun of it, you can just use the school/team colors and then use whatever words you want to use.  And with Silhouette's heat transfer vinyl, the possibilities are endless! I want to make some more or different colored shirts for my boys too, like a navy shirt and then use orange and white HTV or an orange shirt and use the white and navy HTV.
