Darling Cactus Valentines Day Cards

Darling cactus Valentines day cards today to make you smile! We are full steam ahead over here in the Valentine’s department. I need something to keep me going during the doldrums of winter now that all my Christmas decorations are put away. I’m also totally obsessed with cacti as I plan a baby shower for my niece next month.

Cactus Valentines Supplies

  • Mini Ball Point Pens {I found mine at Dollar Tree}
  • Rotary Paper Cutter {or scissors if you don’t mind edges that are a little crooked}
  • Exacto Knife

There are TWO sizes of cactus valentines day cards available. The smaller one fits 4 to a page, the larger one only fits 2.Size Pros and cons: the larger one looks better with the pens and is the one I went with, BUT takes twice the amount of paper and printing. SO if you are printing a lot, cost can be an issue, now you’ve got the smaller cards to work with.

The names are also editable in Adobe Reader. Or you can keep it blank and make your child write their name 30 times. It’s good practice but gets old pretty quick. I figured I’d give you a choice. You’re welcome.

Have a Cutting Party

Easy and fun cactus valentines with ball point pen to stay on point

You can cut these easily with scissors but as a recovering perfectionist I’m in love the straight lines from my rotary paper cutter. It’s also super safe so the kiddos can help you cut them out. I suggest having the adult place the paper and lock it down, then the child can slide the cutter. My kids LOVE it and my 8 year old daughter is old enough now to do it all by herself.

Slice the Dotted Lines

The printable comes with dotted gray cut lines. An ADULT needs to carefully slice each cut line. It takes a minute but it’s not too bad. The cuts are the same length on both size valentine but extend beyond the cactus on the smaller ones.

Slide in the PensSeveral cactus valentines day cards laid out on a wooden table

Add the pens now and you’re all ready to go. The tabs can rip if you’re rough so this is a great step for older kids. 6+ We’ve got over 100 of these to make so you better believe she’s going to help assemble the rest! We’ve got the class party at school, a party at church, and a party in her dance classes…..that adds up to A LOT of Valentine’s! Thank heavens for the dollar store!

Need a Cute Box?

Creative Valentine boxes have become increasingly over the top and I kind of hate them. I mean, I should love them, because I love getting creative, but I don’t. So when I spied this darling llama box at Walmart for just a few bucks I totally snagged it. We may not win an award for creativity, but it’s super cute, does the job, and was assembled in less than 10 minutes. Boom!

Display Your CreationCactus valentines day card with mini ball point pen in front of cactus art

Okay, so maybe this cactus Valentine isn’t going to be displayed, but maybe I’ll use it to create a fun little art print. What do you think? I’m loving the succulents and this shadow box art I picked up at Hobby Lobby. So excited for the Cactus baby shower. Oh and I picked up this cactus paper at Michaels if you are wondering.

I hope you have a wonderful time preparing for Valentine’s and that these cactus valentines day cards make you smile as much as they’ve made me. If you make them, snap a pic, and share it. I’d love to see all your hard work. And if you’re looking for a boy valentine….I’ve got you covered there too with these Awesome Car Valentines Printables. Happy Valentine’s Day!!

    These are so cute! I love that the mini-pens are from Dollar Tree. At 12/$1.00, I can afford to get them for all of my junior high students. Thanks!
