Who’s in the mood for a Valentine’s project? I don’t know about you, but whenever this time of year rolls around, I always find myself searching for cards that are a little different from the norm. You know, not serious, sappy or corny (unless it’s tongue-in-cheek) and without too much red (my least favourite colour).
(Side note: last year, the card I got my husband had a little cartoon dog sniffing another cartoon dog’s butt with the words ‘I like you’. It made me giggle and I think that was his favourite of all the cards I’ve gotten him so far!)
This year, now that I have the blog I thought it’d be nice to create a card that was a little more ‘me’ than the ones in the stores. Bright colours, honeycomb hearts, even a dad joke thrown in for good measure (‘egg-cellent’, get it? 😉 ) – yep, total goofball and right up my alley. If you’re looking for a Valentine’s card with a difference, then get yourself some honeycomb balls from the lovely ladies at Light & Co and follow along!
- Egg Valentine printable (see the end of this post to download)
- Yellow 5cm mini honeycomb balls (available from Light & Co)
- Double-sided tape
- A pencil
With your honeycomb balls closed, mark out half a heart shape on one side.
Get your scissors and cut out the shape you just drew. After trimming them, when you unfold the honeycombs they should look like little hearts.
Head to the end of this post, download the ‘Egg Valentine’ printable and print it out onto good quality card stock. Cut out the cards using scissors or a craft knife, then fold them in half (you can use a bone folder to score down the middle first if you’d like a cleaner fold).
Add double-sided tape to your honeycomb hearts, then open them up and stick them on top of the yellow heart on the card.
And that’s it – with just a few easy steps you have some cute and quirky Valentine’s cards all ready to give to your significant other!
I have to say, I was surprised at how easy it was to come up with funny egg quotes for these cards! Eggs and Valentines hey… who knew?
