As tempting as those grocery valentines are, why not do something unique this year instead! These ten free printables will not only save you time (and a trip to the store), but they’ll also make your loved ones feel extra special. All you need is your printer and what’s not to love about that?
Well ladies, Galentine’s day is quickly approaching. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, watch this and come right back because you’re going to want to learn how to make these clay GIRLBOSS gift tags for all your friends!
1. On wax paper, roll out our clay, making sure the surface is smooth and level.
2. Use your cookie cutter to make the heart shape. Remove excess and set aside. You can use the scraps later to make marbled hearts.
3. Load your stamp tool (it will be a reverse image), then stamp one line at a time, for example, I stamped the word ‘girl’ first in all the hearts before moving on to ‘boss’.
4. Bake at 275°F for 15 minutes. Let cool and attach to your gifts with super tape, glue dots, hot glue, etc. You can also punch a hole in the hearts before baking if you’d rather string them onto your packages.
Easy as that! How are you celebrating Galentine’s day this year?
Time: 10 minutes + dry time Materials: spray paint, glass bottle, rubbing alcohol, warm water
Confession: I hoard glass bottles. Now, not every bottle I come across meets the criteria for being saved from the recycling bin, but there are several ones that I’ve stashed around the apartment in hopes of crafting with one day. Although it can’t hold a full bouquet, this Bellini mix bottle makes the perfect vessel for displaying eucalyptus or branches.
Start by removing your label. It helps to peel the paper as much as you can then soak the bottle in warm water for about 20 minutes. Use a scrubbing sponge to remove any residue, dry, then touch up blemishes on the glass with rubbing alcohol.
Head to a well ventilated area and start spray painting! To achieve the fading look, flip bottle upside down and paint the bottom and base, moving in a circular fashion. The paint will naturally speckle up the sides of your bottle.
Voilà, and it’s only takes 10 minutes to do— perfect if you forgot that Valentine’s day is tomorrow! Just be sure to clean this vase with a damp cloth (not dishwasher safe).
Okay, so now that’s it’s officially February, it’s okay to bombard you with more heart shaped crafts, right? Sure, I’ve made a heart garland before, but that was before I knew about glitter paper. If you’ve been a reader for a while now, just consider this heart garland 2.0.
Cut your paper into strips to make it easier to punch our your hearts.
Place your hearts face down, lay baker’s twine on top, then seal with double sided supertape.
Peel the back off the supertape and cover with another heart (like you’re making a cute heart shaped sandwich).
