I found these adorable felt envelopes in the Dollar Spot section at Target. What can’t you find at Target? I knew that I wanted to make these personalized for Valentines Day and fill them with goodies for my kids. I made a really cute SVG file and sized it to fit perfectly in my deisng software. I added each of their names underneath and I may just keep them do this every year.
Begin by opening the SVG file and upload it into your design software, then send it to your machine. Be sure to mirror the image when using any iron-on. To prepare your image, you’re going to weed out the negative space of the file. The main image will remain on the carrier sheet. You do not want to cut all the way through the carrier sheet for Iron-On.
Lay your image on your felt envelope and press. If you’re using the Cricut EasyPress to press your iron-on foil, set your machine to 300°. Preheat your envelope for 10 seconds and lay the image where you want it. Place your iron-on protective sheet over the image and press for 25-30 seconds.
You can peel your iron-on foil warm but it is best to allow it to cool. Give it 1-2 minutes. If you’re going to press it with your iron, head here for tips
If you want to add a personalized name in a different foil, apply that now. You can just add the name and attach it to the Valentines Day SVG file. Your file will now cut as one.
Now fill your personalized Valentine felt envelope with more Target goodies and you’re personalized Valentine felt envelope is good to go. It’ll be perfect for years to come or just use it this year alone. They’re inexpensive enough that you don’t need to feel bad if you lose it.

Have you ever wondered how to upload an image into Cricut Design Space? I’m going to show you how easy it is to upload your own .jpeg files so you can cut them on your Cricut. This post contains affiliate links. Thank you to Cricut for sponsoring this post.
You first want to find an image you like or your can scan a drawing of your own and convert it to a .jpeg file. I found these ladybugs on Adobe Stock because I have an account. You can easily find an image online that you like and use it for personal use. Please don’t take other people’s hard work and pass it off as your own unless you pay for it.
So because we’re uploading an image of your own, we first want to make sure it’s saved to our computer in the right format. Cricut Design Space accepts .jpeg, .png, .svg, .gif, .bmp and .dxf files. If you have any other file that needs to be converted, there are websites dedicated to converting your file into the file you desire, you just need to google it and it’ll show up.
Now let’s get to it, you’re going to select to make a new canvas by clicking on the Create New Project link.Next, select the upload images on the left side of the screen.And then select Upload Image.Now you’ll select Browse and find your image that you’ve saved to your computer and select Open.Once you’ve brought in your image, it will be time to edit it. For .jpeg and .png, there is the option to select and deselect things you want and don’t want. I like to choose complex image for more detailed images and simple for images I just want to cut outer edges of. For the other files, it will bring it in and you can just select right away if you want it to be a cut or print then cut file.Select the negative space and whatever part of the image you don’t want using your mouse and select Continue. Whatever you do not want to show will be the transparent squares that are in the background. After you’ve edited your image, the next screen will allow you to choose whether you want a Print then Cut image or just a Cut image. When you choose the cut, only the places that were not selected in the edit screen will be cut. Go ahead and save your image with some keywords so you can search for it later and then you’ll also be able to find it by the other images you’ve uploaded. Select it and add it to your canvas.I cut out 12 images of the ladybug, 3 of each color and arranged them on my 10″x10″ canvas.You’ll next use some hot glue to secure them in place. This is not necessary but these are tiny pins here for my apothecary style art so I didn’t want them sliding all over the place. Once they’re at the place you want them at, go ahead and add your mini pins to make it look like a small piece of art just like the Japanese style art with live bugs and frame them.Add it to your mantel or shelves and enjoy this Valentine’s Day art project you made all on your own using your own images you’ve uploaded into Cricut Design Space.

It’s so easy to make these DIY Valentines Mailboxes using your Cricut Explore and Iron-On Vinyl..This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.
I used my Cricut Explore Air 2 with this project but to be honest, you don’t need it. Just take a printout of the words you want to use on your mailbox, trace it onto some Iron-On Vinyl and then cut it out with scissors.
I found these cute felt mailboxes in the dollar section at Target and thought they were darling. They also have mini metal ones or a larger felt mailbox too. I was really tempted to get them but I’ve got a budget I need to stick with!I used some silver and gold iron-on vinyl and I used this method to apply it onto my mini DIY Valentine’s Mailboxes. A really quick and easy Valentine’s Day craft that is sure to please anyone.
I wanted Valentines Day to be easy for my kids but really easy for me. I created some printables and just connected them to these fun glasses and foam fingers to seal the deal. They love them and I love that I only had to really cut and tie. All the links will be at the bottom of this post. The foam fingers are by far my favorite. Just the cutest finger puppets you’ve ever seen and for $3 a piece, no brainer!The glasses are so fun for a classroom because they come in bulk and you’re able to please everyone with the versatile colors. Grab your free printables at the bottom and let me know if you’ve used these. Have fun!
So as I explained over on my Kid Friendly Valentines, I thought maybe I’d make some for the humor that I have. These are my adult themed valentines and I’m always the friend who has something totally shocking and inappropriate to say. These are perfect for a person like me. Grab all the details at the bottom of the post.To those of you not familiar with the moose, let’s just say it’s the male equivalent to a camel toe…nuff said. And, the ram one is probably my favorite.
I have kids, you all mostly know that. I’m also a little adventurous in what comes out of my mouth. I’ve made some Adult Friendly Valentines too for those of you who are a bit like me. These were really easy to make. I just printed them off on my HP printer with cardstock, cut them out and hot glued the animals to it. I spray painted them to add some coordinating colors. The print is at the bottom of the post along with other materials.Now, before you say something about that deer…my daughter lost the original so just pretend it’s a real deer and not some other kind of deer. Let’s just say it’s the deer family and this brings out my knowledge on the animal kingdom. Animals – Amazon (affiliate link) Kids Animal Valentines – FREE PRINTABLE Rustoleum Gold Spray Paint
I had so much fun making these cookies. Super simple and such great tips from the fabulous Alison! All the instructions are in there to complete them step for step and even if you make mistakes. What more can you ask for?
The Alison Show is a crazy fun, creative blog and she put together a whole course about sugar cookies, this course cost $30 and it’s really worth every penny. I realized every mistake I was doing before. She really gives a comprehensive recipe that makes a dang good cookie. In my cookies I added almond extract and lots of lemon juice in the royal icing. I usually buy the Wilton colors for the dye but I used the Americana and I really liked the outcome and I recommend those. The cookies are delicious and last forever and figuring out what theme I wanted was even more fun. I know I’ll be making these in the future!
**Just a disclosure and me being a meany pants. All my printables I offer are free for personal use only. I really hope I don’t have to talk to you in my scary mom voice cause my kids don’t like it and I’m sure you wouldn’t either, thanks!
Ack! These bubbles turned out so cute! Create them for the kids and it’s so easy to make for a classroom valentine. These take seconds to put together and were so inexpensive. It gives you the opportunity to give unique valentines for a fraction of the price.
Package of bubbles (these are available at Target for $3 and you get 20 bubbles in each package. There are some plain ones also available at the dollar store.)
