Printable Valentines Day Cards – You’re The BALM!

It seems that most holiday’s are filled with a lot of yummy food. Sometimes we get tired of the food and want something just a little different. This year I was able to get a bunch of lip balm on clearance after christmas. It seems like we go through that stuff like crazy. Either my “little man” is using it and ruining it or it is left in a pants pocket and goes through the wash! Let’s create fun printable valentines day cards that say “You’re the BALM!”

Printable Valentine’s – You’re the Balm

Supplies Needed:

printable valentines day cards

I do not like sharing my chapstick with anyone so covering it with a fun design would let me and everyone know it is mine.  I got out my small rolls of duct tape. The width was perfect. I cut a piece 2″x 2 1/4″.

I carefully wrapped the tape around the tube, watching the bottom edge trying to exactly cover the original wrapper.

That’s it, I was done! It was so simple, but now my tube is personalized.

I made printable valentines day cards. All you need to do is print on cardstock, cut then attach each tube.

You will need some ribbon to attach the tube to the card. Make a small slit below the word “balm” and above the lower border. The width of your ribbon will determine the length of each slit. Thread the ribon from the back to the front of each slit. Put the tube in the middle of the ribbon and tie a knot.

Happy Valentines Day! I know the kids are going to love these! I have more Valentine’s day crafts and food ideas to check out like this Chocolate Love Bug Valentine Craft.
