Janel from NellieBellie created this fun G.I. Joe Valentine printable for C.R.A.F.T. back in 2013.
I have a 9 year old boy. Finding Valentine’s he wants to give can be tricky. They are always too gushy, mushy. Or horror of horrors… have HEARTS. I know, gasp! So, each year I search out a new Valentine to make for him. When I saw this list of cute Valentine sayings that Jamie put out, and I scrolled through and found a winner winner, chicken dinner! Cheesy and non-mush! So, I present this years “manly” GI Joe free printable Valentine. No hearts. No mush. Just army guys, camo, and black. It was a winner. Score!
Here’s what you need to make a GI Joe Valentine
- Free Valentine printable
- Camo cardstock
- Army guys
- Duct tape (torn into little, baby strips)
How to download the free printable
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, so the girls wouldn’t think he was being mushy. Always thinking, that one. I think it looks like angel’s wings, and he didn’t like that. Anyway, an easy, 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!
