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.)

Brooke,
I'm hoping imitation is the highest form of flattery in this case... I hacked your {brilliant} valentine and made a tutorial for it. Now everyone can share in the awesomeness of this idea!

Are you willing to share your template for this? My boys are huge Star Wars fans and would love to make these for Vday cards! Very clever!

Where did you find the images you used? I've tried so many different searches and can't find any good images to use. My boys love this idea! Thanks.
