When our daughter Liz was growing up I was in the classroom and Valentine’s Day was always a fun holiday. So each year, she would have to have 25 or so Valentine’s for her classmates, then she would send my students one as well. Then, of course I had to give the students all a Valentine’s Day card so we always did lots of Valentine’s. Each year we would pick out the “cool” Valentine’s from the store and of course some candy to go with it. We always sent cupcakes or cookies to the parties as well as my classroom. Those days are long gone, but they will always hold a special place in my heart.
Thank goodness for those memories, and now I get to watch our grandson grow up doing fun Valentine’s in just a few short years. But that’s a story for another day. Today we are going to talk about way back in 2015! Boy Howdy, it sure doesn’t seem like that should be five years ago, but alas it is. One of the first things I made were these free You’re All That and a Bag of Chips Valentine’s Day Cards, and to say they are outdated would be an understatement. So this year I decided to remake them and give them to my nieces Oliva and Willow.

You’re All That and A Bag of Chips!
When I made them I used the Cricut Design space and it was as easy as 1-2-3. So today I’m going to walk you through the process so you can cut them out for your kids using your Cricut Machine. Don’t have a Cricut but still want to print them? No worries, I have you covered too!
Get the You’re All That and a Bag of Chips open in Design Space, and click make it. Then follow the on-screen directions. Just remember to load cardstock into your printer and change your Cricut Explore 2 Machine to the cardstock setting for the best results.
Once you have them printed you will place them onto your mat, then load them into your Cricut machine and press the flashing Cricut light. Wait just a few minutes and remove your You’re All That and a Bag of Chips completed Valentine’s Day Cards. Then, simply peel away the “excess” as seen below, and set your cards to the side. Repeat this process until you have enough cards for your child’s classroom. I did it 5 times for my niece Willow’s Classroom and was done in under 30 minutes!
After you have them all printed, have your son/daughter write their name on the cards and then tape or staple the cards to the bag of chips. I suggest using a stapler because it will keep the cards intact with the chips and no one will have to worry about being left out, because we all know how heartbreaking that is.
