How To Make Easy Minecraft School Valentines









....buy them.


I am not a crafter. I know there are other people who aren't crafters. So. This is a post for you. It's even a post for crafters who aren't in the mood to make Valentines.


To make the card for a Valentine's Day party at school, go to Tiny Prints. Oh, and no, this isn't a sponsored post, nor am I getting paid for any affiliate links. Click here for the Minecraft options. You'll see the one Natalie has. I picked the 25 cards option since she has 24 people in her class. They are under $20. Then I personalized them with her name, put in my credit card info, and I was done.




Then I decided, hey, let's get the kids chocolate too because I love chocolate. We kept with the Minecraft theme and found a woman on Etsy who made chocolate Minecraft wrappers. She's called TheWrapperPress and the Minecraft wrappers were found here.




I admit, when they arrived I thought I wouldn't be able to wrap the chocolate properly. I thought I'd mess it all up. I won't lie, I didn't wrap them as nicely as I should have. I sort of slapped everything together. But they still look fine!





And now we're done. The teacher says NOT to label them with children's names AND Natalie doesn't have to sit and sign 25 Valentines now since they're personalized. This means I don't have to hear her whine about having to sign 25 Valentines like I did last year. ("My hand hurts." "My fingers are cramping." "Can you just finish?" "Maybe I'll sign it with a N and leave it at that.")


I didn't leave the teacher out. She'll be getting this:




I figure her students will be hopped up on sugar because of the party, so she could use her own chocolate to cope.


Do you go for easy Valentines?

    1. Yes, Etsy gets me in trouble. It's like Target but in the internet world.
