star wars valentine

One last valentine for 2012. Though my daughter Bee, who is in kindergarten, can't wait to pass out her fan valentine's at school. My son "C", who is in second grade this year, decided that fans were too "girly" for him to pass out at school. While perusing the candy options at our local party store, we came up with this more manly Star Wars option.

Slits are cut into the card with an X-acto knife and pixi stix inserted to make light sabers (and secured with a little piece of tape on the back).  C was very pleased with the results. Happy Valentine's Day!

(Many folks have asked for a printable for these, but I can't give you one without breaking all sorts of copyright laws in the process. I know people do it all the time in blogland, but I can only provide templates or downloads for artwork I've created myself. I hope you understand.)

Where did you buy the Star Wars valentine at? I LOVE this idea! Both my sons are obsessed with Star Wars :) Thanks!

Do you have a version that we can just print off and add our own pixie sticks or glow sticks? I clicked on the Printer friendly version but that didn't work.
I'm not creative enough to do this on my own :)

My 6 year old son was searching and searching for something that wouldn't be "girly". He is young enough to still love Valentine's, but everything was flowery and pink. He was delighted when I found these. THANK YOU!!!!
