Valentine Round Up

aRRRR you ready?
Look no further for valentine card cuteness. This little pirate card is totally gorgeous – download the boy pirate or girl pirate printables and print onto the heaviest cardstock your printer will take (I use 220gm from Silkes Stationery)

continue on to see our EASY ‘no sew’ version, cupcakes cookies & more


here’s our easy-peasy version of the pirate card!
Molly glued on the hearts and we drew the eye patch string on with a red marker. After she was gone to bed I punched a hole at the top and with some black wool made them into necklaces, one for each of her buddies at montessori. cute

Valentine Lacing Cards

We made four of these lacing heart cards for her teachers and minder over the past two weeks. All you need is a heart shaped cookie cutter, card, red ribbon and a craft needle. When the heart is laced just glue it onto a blank card.
I bought the pack of 50 blank cards and envelopes in Silkes Stationery at Christmas for €9 – great value – as ‘everyone’ gets a card when they visit!
I got the kids plastic craft needle in Hickeys.
