Washi Tape Bubble Valentines

If you’re a fan of non-candy Valentines, these Washi Tape Bubble Valentines are an easy, frugal project to do this holiday. My girls and I were able to make a whole class worth’s of Valentine Bubbles in a half hour for under $6.00–that’s my kind of project! I’ve recently fallen in love with Washi Tape, a Japanese paper tape that’s trending all over the blogosphere. It is easy to work with and comes in all different colors and patterns. One of my 6-year-old twins is really loving it; she has some dexterity issues but has been very successful decorating with Washi Tape (see our homemade gifts for the holidays).

  • Bubbles (from the wedding section of the craft store or Dollar Tree)
  • Washi Tape (find it at Target, the craft store, or online)
  • Valentine stickers
  • fine-tip Sharpie

To make each one, just cut a strip of Washi Tape and wrap around the bubble bottle. Place a sticker on top. We added the girls’ names to the bottom of each bottle with a fine-tip Sharpie, but you could be a little fancier and do a tag with a little extra tape. I chose to keep it very simple! With each child making 25 Valentines for their class, I love having a quick, simple project like this.

  1. What section of Target is the washi tape in? I’ve been wanting to get some and didn’t know they sold it, but I’m not at all sure where to look for it!

  2. This is a great idea, I really hate giving out candy. Thanks for sharing it in on Fluster’s Creative Muster Party. I can’t wait to see what you link up next week.

    Hugs and Smiles,
