Last Thursday, Paper Source headquarters hosted a charming group of fifth grade Girl Scouts for an afternoon of crafting Valentine’s Day kits!

rubber stamps, colored ink, and other crafting supplies

After receiving instruction from our crafting expert on how to use some of our most popular crafting tools, the girls assembled and decorated our pre-cut kits to make some Valentines for their pal-entines.

What do you get when you mix giggling girls, googly eyes, and glitter? A whole “llama” fun! Easily embellished, the llama kit comes with a mini envelope for you to fill with confetti or a secret note.

This troop of Girl Scouts definitely inspired us to use our kits in ways that we had never imagined and truly brought craft embellishing to a whole new level!


We also sent a bunch of our kits to a local second grade class to see how they would put their own spin on our Valentines! After a brief demo, the kids got to work, showing that our Valentine crafts are perfect for any age. Take a look below at their masterpieces!

    I teach senior ladies in their late 80’s and 90’s hand crafts at Japanese Retirement Home. They would love to make these cute valentines for friends and family of grandchildren to share together as a project.

  2. Was just wondering if you have or suggest any valentine crafts for 1 and half to two year olds. I work in a day care and looking for new valentine ideas in this age group. Please help me. Thank you.

      Great question, Karen!
      We’d suggest letting the little ones doodle and decorate on our A7 heart shapes (found here) with crayons, stickers and washi tape, to create cute and unique Valentines for their loved ones. Head to our crafting section for some fun adornments to add to the hearts. However, we do still suggest supervision while crafting these cards!
      Hope this helps!
