Bubblegum Valentines


Both my kiddos are crazy for bubblegum. So I thought their Valentine's Day cards this year should be bubblicious too. (I always try to do something special that includes their photo. Here's what I did last year.)



I found these fun little test tubes of colorful bubblegum balls at Sam's Club. As usual, the hardest part of this project was getting Bea to stand still for a photo. I printed out the images on cardstock and then trimmed them out with an exacto-knife, making sure her little arms could hold the test tubes in place.


For Gus' Valentine, I took a photo of him pretending to blow a bubble. I printed the images on cardstock, trimmed them out and made cut lines on his mouth to hold a slightly-inflated pink balloon. Then I taped little baggies of Double Bubble Bubblegum to the backs of the cards. 

Sweet little Valentines for my little sweeties. Happy Valentine's Day, all!

These cards are awesome! I especially love your son's! What a FUN mom you are:) I usually don't leave links to posts in my comments, but since your kids are bubble gum fans, I thought they might like to see a couple of photos of Bubble Gum Alley, here on the central coast:) Happy Valentine's Day!

I'm not easily impressed. BUT THIS impressed me.

YOU are so stinking FUN and creative. I spotted this post 5 weeks ago and snagged it. I am working on my son's NOW. I had to revisit this post to make sure I am doing it right. I wish you had included some directions, but I am pretty crafty, so I think I can do it successfully. Last year's Valentine (daughter/balloon), INSANE! I can't wait to do that next year.

Thanks! I'm sure you won't have any trouble making your bubblegum Valentines. There's very few instructions, because you can't go wrong. ;-)
