“You’re my butter half”
Okay serious question, how much did you just absolutely LOVE Valentine’s Day as a child? Particularly going desk to desk to deliver those fantastically cheesy, Disney-themed cards – of which everyone seemed to have the exact same variety of – to your classmates?! Gah, just the BEST! I mean, as a kid there is absolutely zero pressure to make dinner reservations, buy the perfect gift, post the most artistically amazing photo of roses on Instagram, whilst professing an undying love for the giver of said roses. Ah, the good ol’ days as a child.. where the only worry was whether or not your classmates would tape one of those surprisingly delicious drugstore bought chocolates onto their envelopes (those kids were seriously the BEST!). So in an effort to bring back the nostalgia factor in a major way this Valentine’s Day, I tried out some seriously cute, Eco-friendly, & DIY Valentine’s Day cards… all of which include some sort of pun situation, well, because of COURSE.
Three Seriously Cute Valentine’s Puns
While I was engaging in my weekly, Sunday “blog browsing” ritual the other day, I stumbled upon these absolutely adorable Valentine’s Day puns on laurenconrad.com which you can find HERE. Cute right?!
Well, due in part to my obsession with DIY, combined with a love for all things puns, I knew that I had to give this particular craft a try!! Not to mention, I’m typically not one for hard-core, “pour your heart” out romance… so I thought that these little guys would make for the most perfect, light sentiment that was equal parts cute, cheesy & personal… my kind of Valentine!
Here’s What You’ll Need…
- Boxes. I used left over cereal boxes!
- Glue Gun
- Pun specific materials. I used: Sticks, Nuts, & Coffee Beans
- Cut boxes into various shapes (I’m thinking circles, hearts, squares etc would be perfect!)
- Glue your materials onto the card
- Write your pun
Pro Tip: Tape this onto a gift for your loved one, OR create a hole with a hole punch, loop twine through the hole, & tie this onto your gift!!! Just be sure to remove the tape afterwards so that you can recycle!
Here are the three that I chose…
“Wood” You Be Mine?
I’m “Nuts” For You
I’ve “Bean” Thinkin’ About You
Will you be giving this a go on Valentine’s Day?!
