DIY Star Wars Valentines:
Happy almost February! I’m Miranda from Live Free Creative, and am excited to share some simple DIY Star Wars Valentine’s with you today!
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to bust out the geeky love, isn’t it? With two school-aged boys, it seemed inevitable that our family would be huge Star Wars fans. When brainstorming what simple DIY Valentine’s we could make for them to pass out in their classrooms this year, I imaged some awesome Jedi Robes wielding Pixy Stix light sabers.
After a few rounds of folding and experimenting, I hit on the perfect dimensions to make the mini Jedi’s stand up with their weapons, ready to defend truth and right with the force. Adding some cheesy Star War’s Valentine messages to the inside of the robes makes them intentional and ready to give to friends. The Force is Strong with You is a pretty high Jedi compliment, and Be My Jedi really couldn’t get sweeter.
I whipped up a free printable for these Jedi Robe Valentines that you can download over on my blog, where you’ll also find the full step-by-step instructions.
Thanks for having me, Jamie! May the force be with all of you this Valentine’s Day!
