I think basically all of these are ideas I got from Pinterest - so don't even bother calling me creative. I mean, unless you insist. Oh, and most of them involve googly eyes, of course.
1. Supplies: one inch punch, one inch googly eyes, card stock, sharpie, colored paper, glue, and scissors:

2. "Love Bugs" - I sold a bunch of these at the farmers market on Saturday to girls between the ages of 6 and 12. They were CRAZY for them. A huge hit with the little kid crowd. And me. I love them - they are just cheerful!
Supplies: yarn to make into pom poms, googly eyes, pipe cleaners, heart stickers (JoAnns), hot glue.
Just be careful because puppies love them too.....
Then this happens:
And that's no good! Make extra love bugs just in case this happens. No one should be this sad on Valentine's Day.
3. Arrows and ribbons - these are easy! Supplies: sticks (JoAnns in the wood supplies section), hot glue, paper, scissors, washi tape, cupcake liners. (I just realized I'm really not telling you how to do it - but that's because you're smart and I know you can figure it out!)
Oh, and you can't forget cookies - sugar is the thing that makes you forget you're alone on Valentine's Day.
So there you go. I hope that helps you out this week. Just whatever you do, don't sign your Valentine cards with the word "from."
