Blogger Valentine Card Exchange

DSCN8013

Do you remember making and buying Valentine cards to pass out at school in elementary school? Wasn’t it the most exciting day ever when the teacher would pass out the white lunch bags to decorate and set up as a mailbox to collect cards in? I can’t even imagine how much more awesome it probably is now with all the creative ideas floating around on Pinterest and on blogs.

Emma from Harper and WillΒ and I partnered up to put together a fun blogger Valentine card exchange. Our mission was to create some homemade and creative Valentine cards with our children and then exchange them with some of our blogger friends who all have children around the same age.

Elin and I had a blast making heart shaped crayons and packaging them up with coloring books. Check out this post to see how we made our heart shaped crayons. I found the printable here.

We mailed off our cards all throughout the country and had fun seeing all the cards arrive for Elin. We waited until we had received all our cards and then Elin sat down opened up all her goodies. She was so excited at seeing all the beautiful cards.

After she had ample to time to admire her cards and play with them, I decided to hang the cards up so we can appreciate them more and use them as decoration. I love how our little garland turned out.
