“I dig you” Valentine


Elin and I have been hard at work on making Valentines already. She is passing them out at school this year and we are participating in a blogger exchange.

We made heart shaped crayons for Valentine’s day last year and I loved them so much I considered making them again but thought we should try something different.



There are so many cute ideas out there on Pinterest that it was hard to just choose one but we decided to make these fun, “I dig you” valentines. I like that there is candy and a little toy involved. I figure the shovel can be used in sand boxes and the beach this coming spring break/summer.

After searching for a printable, I finally foundย these and they printed great.

Toy Plastic Shovels Red White & Pink, 24 Pack, 7 Inches Tall, 24 I Dig You Stickers

Then I searched Amazon and found these red, pink and white shovels. These were the perfect size and color. I was very happy with this seller. Lastly, I decided on getting the valentine starbursts because they are a wrapped candy and I felt like it was probably better to pass out candy that was wrapped at school. ย I will warn you that Elin thought she was helping by just sitting next to me and eating the starburst but I was still happy she was part of the process.



I love how they turned out and I can’t wait for her to pass them out at school. This was such a fun and easy Valentine idea.
