Magnifying Glass Valentines.


Owen's in Kindergarten this year which means every school holiday party is a BIG DEAL. The children get so pumped to exchange notes (and treats) with their classmates. I decided to not contribute to the sugar on Valentine's Day. Instead, I found these miniature magnifying glasses at the party supply store.


I attached the magnifying glasses to a card I designed, being sure to leave a space at the bottom for Owen to practice writing his name.





Because I love you dears so much, I'm offering up the Magnifying Glass Valentine as well as the  Glasses Valentine (pictured above) as a free download. Download the printable PDF right here.


Download Tips: All of my free downloads are Adobe PDF's. If for some reason you have trouble downloading the file, it may be helpful to update your Adobe software. You can do that right here.

  2. So cute Danyelle! I LOVE the glasses on Owen. But then again, I am a bit bias towards boys with glasses. o_o


    P.S-I love your quote by Jeanne De Vietinghoff!
