Two Quick & Easy Valentine Ideas

Today I’m sharing with you two quick & easy Valentine ideas – a diaper fold pouch Valentine and a mini Valentine with a mini envelope! These are the Valentines my kiddos gave to their school (daycare) friends :). Happy Valentine’s Day to you!

First, here’s the diaper fold pouch Valentine:

Diaper Fold Pouch

These are so easy to make using a 6″x6″ piece of Designer Series Paper and you can make a lot of them very quickly. They fit all kinds of goodies – especially a Ghirardelli chocolate square or a bag of tea. This diaper fold pouch could be used for a number of different occasions, not just Valentine’s Day! Here’s a quick picture video tutorial I shared on Instagram: Diaper Fold Pouch. The key to a symmetrical diaper fold pouch is to fold the first corner to the 3.5″ mark on the opposite side.

Next, here’s a mini 2-1/8″x2-1/8″ Valentine with a 2-1/4″x2-1/4″ envelope:

Mini Valentine

The envelope was made using the Envelope Punch Board and a 4″x4″ piece of card stock – scored at the 2″ mark on the Envelope Punch Board on all sides. Using a tiny heart die from the Baker’s Box Thinlits Dies, I made a little peekaboo for the Real Red back of the Valentine to show through – adorable! The envelope is closed with a little Velcro dot. These went together very fast and are perfect for leaving little love notes for your loved ones!
