I went to the Dollarama the other day to see if I could find some inspiration for Valentine’s Day projects. I have to say, I’m pretty pleased with myself. Haha! I love a good pun, so I came up with “You high-light up my life!” 😀 I hope I’m not the only one who is completely amused by these punny printable DIY valentines!

One of my favourite things about Valentine’s Day is scrolling through all the entertaining card ideas found on Pinterest. I aspire to be equally clever!
I’ll be making these highlighter Valentines for my oldest’s class, I haven’t decided what I’m doing for my little guy’s class yet.
I managed to find packs of 5 highlighters at the Dollarama for $1.25, and I’ll need 4 packs. It’ll cost me a few dollars more than simply purchasing a box of Pixar themed Valentine’s cards, but it’s worth it.
I think it’s important to make a little effort for these kinds of occasions. Growing up I always made all of my Valentines, my mother certainly wasn’t going to buy the premade cards! But I enjoyed it, and honestly I still enjoy now!
I want my boys to know that I value the things that are important to them, and giving Valentines to their class mates is one of those things.
Printable DIY Valentines
You can download the free Valentine cards printables by clicking here. I printed mine on cardstock, which you can easily acquire at Staples or Michaels.
I used a 1/8″ hole punch to punch 4 small holes in the cards and a length of 1/8″ satin ribbon to tie the markers to the cards. Easy peasy!
Is it wrong to think I’m hilarious?! These printable DIY Valentines cards make me chuckle every time I look at them. Clearly I don’t have anything more exciting happening in my life right now. Lol 🙂
