I’m Wild For You Valentine

February 11, 2010

This is what we’ve been working on for 8-year-old Olive’s valentines this year. I think they’re turning out cute, no? My favorite is the hippo shouting “Hippo Valentine’s Day!” But I need your opinion: do we prefer the wild animals featured in the little cellophane bags? Or do we like them attached directly to the card with craft thread? I can’t decide.

Also. I’m coming up short on a little valentine message for these animals: rhino, tiger, zebra, giraffe. So I’m going with a neutral “I’m wild about you Valentine” for those four. If you think of anything brilliant, I’d love to hear it. UPDATE: Loved your ideas! Thanks for all the help.

SECOND UPDATE: Your wish is my command. Click here to download a 4-page pdf featuring both versions. (Nothing fancy. Not even crop marks. But hey, they’re free.)

thx so much!

Thank you for sharing this wonderful Valentine’s Day card idea! My boys and I just made 50 of them – and they are so excited to take them into school this week. Thank you!


3 Michela February 14, 2013 at 9:20 am

Thank you for the great idea and of course the free print outs. I attached them to animal crackers instead, since my daughter is only 2 1/2, but still a hit with her class.


4 lidia January 21, 2014 at 11:27 am

this is a brilliant idea, i love it! i prefer the ones in the bag but both are cute.


5 lauren February 1, 2014 at 2:56 pm

These are amazing! Is there a way to get them in a changeable format? I downloaded the PDF, but can’t change the sayings. I found some other animals that I want to add:

otter – You OTTER be my valentine!
reindeer – Happy Valentines Day, DEER!

There were others, but I can’t remember at this moment. :)

Thanks for this great idea! I was looking for a non-candy valentine for my son’s preschool class. Do you happen to have printables for a camel and bear? I am just short those two and I love the quotes you put with yours.


7 Jeanette February 9, 2014 at 3:11 pm

Thank you for sharing these. My daughter used them last year for Valentine’s Day. She liked them so much she wants to use them again this year! We did the ones without the bag.


8 Heather February 13, 2014 at 2:58 pm

Love these and making now, but do you have the baggy labels in the card form?


9 Susan January 23, 2015 at 7:55 pm

I’m so excited to do these with my daughter for her class this year. One question I have…I downloaded the file; however, the moose and bear aren’t included. Any chance I missed seeing it somewhere or are those just not available?



10 Angie Neil February 12, 2015 at 11:32 pm

Thank you so much for the adorable idea! My 8 year old daughter and I made these for her class this year. We turned the animals into necklaces. They turned out so cute! You can see them on my Instageam account: @treasuresfortots. I was wondering if it is possible to buy a .pdf file that includes all the animal card sayings? Like the moose, bear and camel? Thank you so much for your time!


11 Denise Clements February 4, 2016 at 10:30 am

These are the cutest things I have seen. I am totally impressed. Did you use safari card stock or does it print like this? Would love if you would send me the PDF please? You are amazing. Thank you.
