Sprinkles to my Cupcake | Printable Chalkboard Art Valentine’s Day Cards

Posted by  ·  February 12, 2013  ·  Last Updated: February 6, 2018

Hi there! This is Jessica, owner and creative director of  Pen N’ Paperflowers.
I share darling party inspiration, fun craft projects, yummy baking ideas, and all things creative on my blog. I offer cute printable party packages in my shoppe
and I’ve also designed a patent-pending product called The Pastry Pedestal™.

When I’m not sharing fun things on my own blog, I’m working on adorable things to share as a blog contributor for Hostess with the Mostess.

I’m absolutely thrilled to have been invited to participate in the Valentine’s Day Series here on Skip to My Lou.

I hope you love the last-minute Valentine’s Day idea I’ve created…

With only a couple of days left before we officially celebrate, I knew I’d need to share something simple enough, unique and absolutely adorable…
so as to help you fend off the last-minute temptation to purchase those generic boxed Valentine’s cards you can find everywhere. *wink*

With just a few supplies you are well on your way to the cutest last-minute Valentine’s Day Cards ever!!
Say hello to the “You are the Sprinkles to my Cupcake” Chalkboard Art Valentines Day Cards!

Super cute and super simple classroom Valentine swap idea

I’m all about the Chalkboard Art craze that has taken over and I’m in love with this mini version I designed just for Valentine’s Day. I hope you love them too!

Supplies Needed:
FREE “Sprinkles to my Cupcake” printable Valentine’s Day Cards
– Scissors or paper trimmer
1.5 inch Round Craft Punch
– Cupcake Sprinkles
– Stapler
Mini Ziploc Bags
– Cupcakes (optional)

I’ll let the photos do the talking first and then the verbal instructions will be at the bottom of the post…

Supplies needed to create DIY Sprinkles to my Cupcake Valentine Card Process for the DIY Chalkboard Art Valentine's Day Cards :: Trim, Fold, Punch Create a 1.5 inch circle in the middle of the Valentine Card using a round craft punch Unfold Valentine Card and grab a pen Include handwritten names Fill a mini ziploc with sprinkles, refold card and insert ziploc in the center. Staple both sides of the card as well as the ziploc bag together Sprinkles will be visible from both sides now Front and back of the Chalkboard Art Valentine's Day Cards Finished DIY Chalkboard Art Valentine's Day Cards

Super cute…am I right?!
I’m in love with how they turned out.

Here’s the verbal HOW-TO:
1. Print Valentine’s Day Cards.
2. Trim to size using scissors or a paper trimmer.
3. Fold in half.
4. Use a 1.5″ Round Craft Punch to create a circle through the middle of the
folded card.
5. Unfold card and have your child (or yourself) fill out the “To” and “From” portion of the cards
6. Fill a mini ziploc bag a little more than 1/2 full with sprinkles of your choice.
7. Refold card and slide the mini ziploc bag filled with sprinkles into the middle of the card.
8. Staple the card closed – being sure the staple penetrates through the top of the mini ziploc bag.

Present a frosted SPRINKLE-FREE cupcake along with the Valentine’s Day card shown here.
Simply send in (or bring in) some mini cupcakes to present to each child along with their “Sprinkles to my Cupcake” card.
Now each child can have double the fun by decorating their cupcake and THEN eating it too.

Include a pretty cupcake nestled in a cute cupcake box.
Tie it up in a darling ribbon, attach your “Sprinkles to my Cupcake” card from your child and you’ve got an adorable teacher gift for them to give.

Include a frosted SPRINKLE-FREE cupcake with your Chalkboard Art Valentine's Day Card The recipient of this fun Valentine will enjoy decorating their cupcake AND eating their treat

Thanks so much for allowing me to share this with you today.
I hope I’ve been able to inspire you…
And even if your Valentine’s are already done – be sure to “Pin” this idea for next year!! *wink*

    We've used this printable for the last three years. It's become a tradition in our home! The kids look forward to it and love eating them along or making dessert and adding sprinkles on top.

    Wondering what the best kind of printer is to print stuff like this. The one I have does not do a good job on things like this and I want to replace it!
