Make Your Own Hand-Lettered Valentines (+ Free Printables!)

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, so it’s time to start thinking about the way you’re going to tell your loved ones how much you care about them. Whether you need a card for your SO, your BFF or your kid’s class, these printables will bring a smile to their adorable faces. And the best part — you get to create your own message. Add inside jokes or your favorite quote, or just say “hi.” Check out the cards we made below!

– Brit + Co. Printable Valentines (scroll down to download the ones you want)

– card stock

– scratch paper

Tools:

– various pens (Deco art pens, Sharpies, Micron fine point pens)

– scissors

Instructions:

  1. Download and print the Brit + Co Printable Valentines.
  2. Cut along the dotted lines.
  3. Practice words and phrases on your scratch paper.
  4. Write copy on your cards.

We created a whole bunch of different printables. For larger valentines, you can download the 4-card templates you see above: download our template with designs or download the blank template.

To make mini valentines, download these 9-card templates: download our template with designs here or download the blank template.

Grab some card stock and head over to your printer. Make sure you’ve got sufficient pink and red ink. It’s V-day after all. The great thing about these cards is that you can print as many as you want. Does your 2nd grader have a class of 36? No problem. You can print 36 instead of buying way too many at the store.

Cut along the dotted lines. If you’d rather write on the cards before you cut them apart, that works too.

We recommend practicing your lettering and designs before you make your cards. Get a piece of scratch paper and go to town.

When you’re ready, make your cards! Add words and phrases to the cards with graphics.

And draw on your blank cards. So fun!

Let your creativity flow and your heart swell as you make these love notes for your loved ones.

So much love!
