Easy Valentine's Day Cards (Free printable!)

Oh my! Valentine's Day is just around the corner!  

Honestly, I've been looking forward to this holiday since the day I took down all the Christmas decor.  When we lived in Minnesota, I loved keeping the snowy Christmas decor out during January, but in Houston?  Well, it just doesn't seem as appropriate.  Instead, it's onto the next holiday!  

And of course, part of the fun of Valentine's Day is passing out cards to classmates!  My 5 year old and I brainstormed a few different ideas and finally decided on giving his friends crayons.  Something we both love!


Crayons are best enjoyed with something to color on, so I kept the lettering open on the card, and created a small coloring page on the backside.  

And since it was so simple to put together, I decided to share it with you as well!



The trickiest part is printing on both sides of the cardstock.  I constantly forget which direction to place the paper to get it to print correctly, so I always put a small pencil mark on the lower right hand side before printing, and then I can reference it when I need to flip the paper for printing the back side.


Happy Valentine's making!
