I have been stumped on a design for a Valentines card for my boys this year. That is until I hit the Target Canada closing out sale and came across the puncher balloons in the party section. There was no price listed and the SKU didn’t work so they gave them to me for $1.00 a bag. Add on some cute Valentines washi tape, same situation so I got it for .50 a roll.
Ok so I had tape and balloons, now what?
I could not for the life of me come up with a pun so I referred to Pinterest and Voila! Hope your Valentines Day Packs a PUNCH was the cutest saying so I went with that. Since I only have a black and white printer (the thing refuses to die and it is a laser jet so the toner I just put in will last me at least another 2 years) I thought I would play around with fonts. I fell in love with KG Only Hope for the main part of the message and Blue Noon for the word PUNCH.
My son stamped all the sheets with a red heart and then I glued the message onto blue paper. I made the boys cards slightly different colours so I could keep them straight. I used the washi tape to tape the balloon on, and in the end it kept popping up on the one side so I popped a staple in as well. The boys signed their names in red marker. That’s it. Most of the stuff I had on hand and the rest I bought on clearance. I think they turned out cute and they didn’t break the bank.
