Full House Valentines

Full House valentines

I was a full-fledged member of the Full House club. I think I can quote every episode by heart. You can imagine I might be somewhat interested in the Full House revival, Fuller House, new on Netflix. Mind you, I’m interested and yet totally frightened what might take place. Will it be just as cheesy? Let’s hope so! Just as didactic? Let’s pray! Please don’t change a single thing about it! And please let Uncle Jesse have a full head of hair still. I hear Michelle will not be making an appearance though (are we surprised?!).

To celebrate, we made some free printable Full House valentines illustrated by Lexi Nilson. We have Uncle Jesse saying “Have mercy!” and “Talk to me”, Michelle with her “You’re in big trouble, mister”, Stephanie’s “Hot dog!” and DJ’s “You’re no nerd bomber”.

We are clearly inspired by Salvation Mountain and the wonderfully bright and kitsch aesthetic of it all. (Evidence #1, #2, #3) and thought their message of love was perfect for this month of love. These free printable Valentine cards are perfect for sending your peace and love to your Valentine’s sweetheart (or flower child). Once again, Caitlin knocked it out of the park with these front and back patterned cards. Just print them on cardstock and you’re good to go!

Shrinky dink Valentine’s Day pins

Eyes lips heart shrinky dink pins

My illustrator friend, Michele, is one of the most clever people I know. For Christmas she gifted me a pin that she had created our of Shrinky Dink and I thought it was the most magical thing in the world. I had never even heard of it. And yes! I am a baby from the 80s! I don’t know where I was. I decided to catch up on lost time and make some Shrinky Dink Valentine’s Day pins for our Galentine’s Heart, Hand, Eyes, and Lips brunch, which we will be releasing on Wednesday. They are super easy to make and, being a kid’s toy, super fun too. All you do is draw it, place it in the oven, then it shrinks down to half it’s size. Glue a pin to the back and you’re set!

We mixed ours in with some gems that we backed with pins, as well as googly eyes.

3 Valentine’s Day pinata boxes

Valentine's Day pinata boxes red lips

It’s been awhile since my school days when everyone brings in a homemade box to store their valentines from class mates, but after our hair product pinatas for Rubi’s workshop, we wanted to pinata everything! Thus, Valentine boxes were in order. We made some red lips, a Love Bug with a trunk that opens, and a hot air balloon. Each one I’m trying to figure out how I can display on a permanent basis. They are too cute!
