Guys – Valentine’s Day is really growing on me. I just love love and hearts and PUNS. Gosh, I love dumb puns.
I think the great thing about Valentine’s Day too is that I can craft and do fun things for my kids and husband and friends, but it doesn’t put the same kind of expectation and stress on me that some other holidays do (I’m looking your way, Christmas and Halloween).
Sooooo because of my love of puns and silly little Valentine’s Day treats, I have another Valentine for you guys – Fish Valentines! I had the thought the other day that those little red fortune teller fish I used to love as a kid would make a perfect – like I mean PERFECT – Valentine’s Day non-candy treat. So, I immediately ordered a bunch (you can get over 100 for about 5 bucks on Amazon), and pulled out my favorite brush pen to design some new printables.
This one is actually a Silhouette print and cut Valentine. (Plus – there are 26 other great Print and Cut Valentines from some of my blogger buddies at the end of the post. Yay!)
The Print and Cut feature is probably my favorite Silhouette feature. This is how it works – you print out your design with registration marks around the outside of the paper, and then the machine reads those marks to cut right around your design – it’s pretty awesome.
Here’s what you will need for your Print and Cut Classroom Valentines:
- My Print and Cut files – available in a coral pink or navy blue (You can also download a PDF version in pink and blue if you want to cut them out by hand)
- White Cardstock
- Silhouette Cutting Machine
- Fortune Teller Fish
- Double Stick Tape
Then simply use a piece of double stick tape to attach a fortune fish to each Valentine. That’s it! You are donezo! The Valentines come with two phrases – “hooked on love” and “o-fish-ally in love.”
Now you and all of your friends can find out through the mystical power of red plastic fish whether you are passionate or fickle. From my family’s very scientific experiments, most people seem to be in love. 😉
