My Funny Valentine: Homemade Love Notes

   My funny valentine

Sweet comic valentine
You make me smile with my heart
Your looks are laughable
Unphotographable
Yet you’re my favorite work of art

Is your Figure less than Greek?
Is your mouth a little weak?
When you open it to speak
Are you smart?

But don’t change your hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little valentine stay
Each day is Valentines day

Oh, Frank, serenade us into the weekend with your smooth baritone! Today my two favorite Funny Valentines are bringing you their homemade love notes. This particular Valentine design is so simple. Check it out!

1.  The goods. You’ll need:

  • Heart shaped doilies
  • Small paper hearts (we cut ours from poster board with a cookie cutter)
  • Gum
  • Gluestick
  • Clear tape
  • Glitter (optional)
  • Baker’s twine (optional)
  • Gems or jewels (optional)
  • Candy hearts (not optional, these are for you and your littles) 🙂

2. The process:

After cutting out your paper hearts, glue them to the heart-shaped doily. Write your friend, family, or future love’s name on the heart (my kindergartner wrote his OWN special Valentine for a GIRL! I didn’t know what to say, so I just smiled and said he should still make a class Valentine for her). Stick a piece of tape to the back of the piece of gum. Place the stick of gum underneath the name on your paper heart. Add glitter, twine, or any other gems and jazz you’d like.

3. Don’t forget your teacher! Our teachers got a WHOLE pack of gum for themselves ;). Hot diggity!

  1. I’ve been remembering the homemade Valentine’s made years ago around our kitchen table. I always tried to procure Big Red gum to tape on the paper treasures. I would have preferred fruit stripe gum, like Grandma Verna had for us back in the 50’s ! It’s laughable that at age 10-11 I taped TWO pieces of the multi fruit stripe gum on my current crush’s red paper/doily Valentine, hoping to win his heart. I was devastated to learn that he had ripped off the gum, stuffed both pieces in his mouth, and stuffed the Valentine in the trash! Oh, young love-so fragile.
