Hello again! It is February, and Valentine's Day is approaching. If you follow my Instagram, you may notice that I have been playing with some bear characters for my Etsy shop. Bear is such a popular animal for Valentine's Day. Of course, we are talking about a cute cuddly bear, not the grizzly one;) For for this blog post, I would like to utilize my bear character as a classroom Valentine's card. It's a simple inexpensive way where kids exchange cards with their friends at school.
For those of you who are moms, this will be a perfect Valentine's activity between you and your little ones. Here are what you need for this project:
First, I put my chocolate candies in the mini treat bags, tied them with 1/8" red ribbon. You can put as many candies as long as they fit in the bag. Pssst...mine is dark chocolate:P
Next, print the art on the card stock, cut the bear parts. Each bear has 3 parts.
Lay them out as shown below. For recipient name, I typed it with my design program. Another option is using Adobe Acrobat. Please note every computer has different font types. You can learn the step by step how to edit/add text on pdf file here. No patience to do so? No worries, just handwritten it using gel pens to make it more personal!
After that, flip the bear over (see below). Then, glue the arms on the reverse side of the bear body. I have indicated which one is left and right on the page.
To attach the candy bag, I used clear mounting squares so the kids can peel the glue without any risk of damaging the surface of the art on the card stock. However, if you do not care about this fact, then, any kind of tapes will serve the purpose :)
Here how finished cards look like. Aren't they adorable? Just for variety, I made 2 colors of bear. You can download the file here. Hope you will find them fun to make. I would love to see how you do yours. If you have Instagram, feel free to tag me @zoyu_design. Have fun!
