Organic Valentine’s Day treats from Annie’s Homegrown and these cute chalk art cards are a fun and healthy option for spreading the love! I appreciate them sponsoring this post and you for stopping by.
I can vividly remember making a Valentine’s Day box throughout grade school, crafting the afternoon away with glue stuck all over my hands, a sea of red and pink construction paper scattered across the floor, funky buttons, and hopeful thoughts that my crush Jamie would address a special little note to me. Always a slight romantic at heart, February 14th was much more important than any Halloween.
Even now I enjoy creating cards for the special people in my life, usually homemade with love like these Chalk Art cards. When Annie’s Homegrown asked me to partner with them & spread the Valentine’s Day cheer, I spent an afternoon resting my brain and escaping with a little creativity. And I’ll admit, more than one pack of their adorable & organic Berry Patch fruit snacks disappeared while I made these cards….
Many of my friends are moms and I’ve listened to them talk about the struggle to find gluten-free, nut-free options for their little ones to bring to school. And unlike when we were growing up, homemade treats aren’t allowed. These organic fruit snacks fit the bill, plus they have no high-fructose corn syrup and are Non-GMO certified.
And how cute are the little bunnies? I also added some Burt’s Bee lip balm, a fun non-candy idea for kids (and girlfriends!).
Since doing some chalk art a few weeks ago at the Be Crafty Workshop (so much fun), I thought it would be fun to make cards that utilized the same type of feel. I found everything at Target, including the Annie’s Valentine’s Day Fruit Snacks (the regular berry pouches are available year-round in case you wanted to use them for a birthday party), a one-stop shopping win.
Have fun and Happy Valentine’s Day! xo
What You’ll Need for the Cards
- White & Pink Cardboard paper
- Chalk Art Stickers – found at Target in the $1 section! or a craft store like Michael’s
- Chalk or a White-Out Pen
- Annie’s Organic Valentine’s Day fruit snacks
- Burt’s Bees Lip Balm
- 3D Valentine’s Day Stickers
Cut out a medium sized square from your pink card stock that will fit inside your white card stock, leaving about an inch of room on the sides. Write the name of who you are giving the Valentine’s Day Card too on the chalk art stickers, then place at the top of the card. Using tape, affix the fruit snacks and chapstick to the card in the places shown above. Write a berry special message in the blank space and decorate with stickers.
