Welcome to the 1st day of the Share the Love series! I’ve got 8 guest bloggers lined up to share cheesy cuteness with us. I asked each blogger to choose one of the 100 valentine day sayings and make a crafty valentine for their kids, husbands, friends or co-workers! First up to Share the Love is Janel from Nellie Bellie!
Well, hello there! I am so happy to join in on the Cheesy Valentine Sayings with Jamie. Anything Cheesy… I’m in! Throw in some love and it’s double fun! I’m Janel from NellieBellie. And I’m one of those bloggers that does a little of everything. I can’t say I do any one thing terribly well. But, I try. And, golly gee…I sure have fun trying. My readers say they enjoy learning along with me. I’m certain they are upstanding people and wouldn’t lie to me. So…it must be true. Come by and say hi when you get a chance…I would love to have you! In the name of all things fair, here is a picture of me. So you can spot me in a crowd, of course…
Now that we are friends let’s move on to this cute Valentine. See, I have a 9 year old boy (it’s okay, you can say I look young for my age. As many times as you want. I’ll wait.) and finding Valentine’s he wants to give can be tricky, tricky. They are always too gushy, mushy. Or horror of horrors…have HEARTS. I know, gasp! So, each year I search out something new to do for him. When I saw this list of cute Valentine sayings that Jaime put out, and I scrolled through and found a winner winner, chicken dinner! Cheesy and non-mush! So, I present this year’s “manly” Valentine…
No hearts. No mush. Just army guys, camo, and black. It was a winner. Score!
To make this cute “manly” Valentine you need:
- Free Valentine printable
- Camo cardstock
- Army guys (can be found in most dollar stores and dollar sections)
- Duct tape (torn into little, baby strips)
How to download the free prinatble
To download the “Love is a Battlefield” free printable Valentine, just enter your name and email address below and the free file will be delivered to your inbox! The G.I. Joe Valentine come 4 to a page.
Use a couple strips of duct tape to tape your guy on to the printable. You want it to look a bit like he is being restrained, kidnapped. Also, give room on the bottom for the guy to stand upright. It looks way cool to have these Valentine’s standing.
Have your little guy sign his name on the very end. My Levi added a broken heart ( I think it looks like angel’s wings…he didn’t like that) so the girls wouldn’t think he was being mushy. Always thinking, that one.
And there you go…an easy and cheesy Valentine any little boy will be proud willing to give!
Thanks so much Jamie for having me and letting me share my Cheesy Valentine with your readers…it’s been a privilege!
