Super cute printable school Valentines

With Valentine’s Day almost a month away, I thought I would start posting some fun crafts ideas, recipes and printables for you. YEA! I know some people think Valentine’s is a lame holiday… but I love it! It was one of my favorite holidays to celebrate as a kid. I always loved getting my class list from my teacher to make school Valentines. I loved writing all the kids names on my handmade Valentines. Of course I had to make a cute “Valentine mailbox” too. ;)

Today I’m sharing this “so glad we’re in the same shool” free printable. I love how they turned out. I added it up and they only cost me about .15 cents a piece. SA-WEET! My son is super excited about these. He may have already ate his. ;) This printable school Valentines was inspired by Faboolous. I just love this fish swimming in the sea. Hope you love them as much as I do! :)

OMG these are too cute! "I'm glad we're in the same school" free Valentine printable from iheartnaptime.com . Print out and put in a plastic bag with Swedish fish or Goldfish.

3. Place fish inside a clear bag with printable and then tie with twine or ribbon. They do make small packages of Swedish Fish you could use, if your school won’t allow opened packages.

    These are so cute!! However, when I go to download them, box.com tells me this file “has been deleted or is unavailable to you” – am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks for such a cute idea!

      Hey Kristina! The small clear bags from Michaels (about 3 in wide) worked great!

      Hey Stephanie! I just checked and it was working on my end. Try using google chrome, that should fix it. Open image in new tab and then save the image to your computer. Hope that helps! XO

    Thank you for sharing this with all of us. I always love your printables and when I saw this on Pinterest I just had to download it. It’s perfect for my son’s school that doesn’t allow candy. We can do Goldfish though! Thanks again. I always appreciate your generosity of everything you share with us!

    When I print the 4 fishbowls, they only fill half a page. What am I doing wrong? I need them bigger. Love the printable! Thanks! :)

      Hi Alyssa! When printing, make sure to select “full page” in the printer settings. Hope that helps!

      Alyssa, not sure if you figured it out but I went into my page set up and flipped the pic to be horizontal instead of vertical and adjusted the fit, it then printed all 4 on a full page!!!!!

    Hi, these are great! Can’t wait to use them. I did print them out and the fish bowls measure almost 5 inches wide. I bought some clear plastic bags at JoAnn’s and they’re only 4″ x 6″. I didn’t realize they wouldn’t fit. Does this sound right? I saw that you recommended the 3″ bags from Michaels, but I’m not sure how that would work (unless my fish bowls printed out too big). Thanks!

      Hey Sarah! The bags stretch quite a bit when you open them up. I used the smaller ones too. :)

    Hi Jamielyn! These are cutest Valentines I have seen so far! Facebook is notorious for not notifying page owners when I tag them and share their stuff, so I thought I would stop by myself and let you know :) These were a hit with my Facebook audience! https://www.facebook.com/CraftsbyAmanda/photos/a.353593675216.349539.323548680216/10153811891695217/?type=1&stream_ref=10

    Thanks for the print out! My daughters school only allows packaged store bought items to be given out, so we are modifying the idea a little. We printed out the cards and are (carefully, as not to break the seal) to individual snack size packages of goldfish. She is really excited to give them to her friends!

    Hi! I love this Valentine idea! I made them for my 4 year old daughter’s little classmates and everyone loved them! I was wondering: what brand of twine did you use? Yours looks so nice and thick! Mine is thin- I had to double it up to make it look nicer.
