Peanut Butter and Jelly Valentine {Easy Peasy Valentines}

I don't know about you, but I'm having a difficult time getting my creative juices flowing again since the holidays.  I have been organizing every square inch of my house--except for my craft room!  I need to get my craft on again!  This year, my mantra is "SIMPLIFY!"  My brain seems to handle simple things well.

But I also need something fun to look forward to!

So welcome to my Valentine's Day series, "Easy Peasy Valentines."

Each and every Friday, I will be sharing a quick-and-easy homemade valentine idea.  All ideas will be cheap. And all ideas will be easy.  Today's valentine is print-and-go!

Little Man will be handing these out to his friends in his Boys Club.

Today's valentine costs less than a $1, and what child doesn't love peanut butter and jelly?!  We eat it for dinner almost every night when Mr. oopsey daisy is out of town.  It's a classic.


What?!  You don't think of peanut butter and jelly as romantic?!

Maybe this can get you in the mood...

So here is how you can create your own easy peasy peanut-butter-and-jelly valentine:

I purchased this box of frozen peanut butter and jelly uncrustable sandwiches at Wal-Mart.

It was a box of 4 for $2.93.  So each sandwich was less than a $1.  Not bad!

(Because they are meant to be kept frozen, we will give these out last minute!)

I created this image in Photoshop.  You can download this here if you wish to create your own.

I placed this image in a Word document and printed it out on scrapbook paper.

I cut out my topper and folded it in half creating a tent.

I stapled this tent on top of a ziplock baggie with the sandwich inside.

Simple, sweet, and kids will love it!

Are you working on any Valentine's Day projects yet?

Have a happy weekend!
