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.
