Homemade Dinosaur & Stamp Valentine Cards with Free Printables

Valentine’s Day was always so fun for me as a child. It gave me a chance to flex my creative muscle and make homemade cards for my friends. Now that I have little children I wanted to make some fun cards that my kids would be excited about sharing! These cards are also a nice option for schools that don’t allow candy. We love candy, but sometimes it is nice to have different options and I have two for you below!

I hope you and your children enjoy making your own Valentine cards. Don’t forget to grab your free pdf printables below before you start.

    Step 4: Punch two holes for the strings to go with your hole punch or with the end of the scissors.
