Dinosaur Valentine Printables

Dinosaurs are a big deal out our house...with three boys I know you are shocked! So this year I decided to make dinosaurs a part of Valentine's Day.

I found these adorable teeny tiny dinosaurs at The Mart (refresher...this is how I refer to Walmart) in the party favor aisle. Around the same time I saw a pin for THIS. Combine both and I came up with an idea for my own Valentines.

First I had to make sure I knew how Dinosaurs actually said Happy Valentine's Day. So I went ahead and asked them...

I found out RAWR pretty much covers it all. Whew...good to know.

Then I went into Picnik and made up some of my own cards using all of their free editing tools. On a side note...anyone else devastated that they are closing up shop? I am starting to have a mini panic attack about it all. Supposedly they are moving everything to Google+, but I am a little leery that it is going to work the same. Maybe I will be surprised. 

Okay, sorry for the side rant. Back to the cards.

These are the cards I made.
Please feel free to click on picture and save to your computer.

I cut up sammie bags and sewed them into smaller bags. I dropped one of the teeny tiny dinos inside each bag and then sewed the bag to the bottom of the card.

I think they are super stinkin' cute.

Twenty-four cards later I was frazzled, but their cuteness rating remained high.

Now Oldest is ready for his school Valentine's party. All he has to do is sign his name.

Happy Valentine's card making!
