Ever since we celebrated National Rubber Ducky Day in January, my younger daughter Madeleine has been obsessed with rubber duckies. What better way to continue the rubber ducky fun than with some cute mini Valentine rubber ducks? I have once again partnered with my friends at Oriental Trading to create some adorable rubber ducky Valentine cards. All you need to do is print out these free Valentine cards, add some rubber ducks and you have darling non-candy Valentine cards for your Valentine celebration or school party. Are you ready to learn how to make your own rubber ducky Valentine cards? Here we go:
Plastic sandwich bags
Paper cutter (optional)
Free printable Valentine cards (click below to download)
Begin by gathering your supplies.
Print the free printable Valentine cards out on a piece of white cardstock using your home printer. The downloadable template prints out 8 cards to a sheet. Cut out the cards using your scissors or a paper cutter. You all know how much I love my paper cutter for crafts and projects like this!
Add names to the “To” and “From” section at the bottom of each card with a pen or marker.
Using your scissors cut the zippered top off from a sandwich bag leaving you with a simple clear plastic bag. Don’t worry too much about the cut edge of the bag – when it gets gathered up you really can’t see any jagged edges.
Place your card into one side of the plastic bag pushing it way down into the corner. Add a mini duck on top. Fold over the excess plastic bag around to the back of the card and secure with a piece of transparent tape.
Gather up the top of the bag and tie a simple bow using some pink or red baker’s twine. And just like that you have adorable non-candy rubber ducky Valentine cards! Cute, huh?
