Rockin' Valentine's Day Cards

Here at the Okui household it's all about the video game Rock Band 2. My son particularly is obsessed with the game. I find him making microphones and singing E-Pro. He even has a new nighttime ritual of brushing his teeth to "Eye of The Tiger", never saw that coming. So when it was time to make his Valentine cards, I knew just where to look for inspiration.

Supplies:
Hear Shaped Lollipops
White Card Stock
Scissors
Hole Punch
Double Stick Tape
Click on image to make it larger, right click, copy and save the clip art onto a document such as word. It's designed to fit on a landscape (11 x 8 1/2) page. Print out on heavy card stock.


Cut out the cards and punch a hole in the center of them, refer to picture.

Fold in the packaging of the lollipop and tape down. This will prevent it from showing once the card is attached.

Place the card onto the lollipop stick. Using double stick tape, attach the bottom corners of the guitar together. Rock out.

Thank you for sharing! I used your idea with a bag topper that says "You Rock!" from Fancy Pants Prints to make goodie bags for classmates. The two ideas seemed made for each other.

Just wondering if you might have a PDF File version of these?! They're just perfect for my daughter! She'd go nuts for these!? Unfortunately our printer will only print this type file on a photo size paper no matter what I do in the settings ;( If not, no worries it's fab & I'm happy to have found your space here anyway :D !!!! Happy Valentines!

jessica okui said...

Hi Jeanine,

I'm sorry, I don't have a PDF for this template. :( Unfortunately, blogger doesn't support PDF's like Wordpress does. I'm in the process of working on that. Hopefully by next year, I'll have all my templates transferred to PDF's. It's something that I've been wanting to do for a long time.
