Who doesn’t want to spread some extra love these days? In lieu of getting together with your gal pals, drop off a Galentine! Today I’m showing you a simple Galentine’s Day gift idea that works for you or your daughter. This project does not take much effort at all and can be completed from start to finish in just a couple of hours — I promise!
The first step is to design your Galentine’s Day card. Have you heard of Canva? If you haven’t your kids probably have. It’s your new best friend for all things graphic and creative. Most of the functionality of Canva is free too. You can upgrade to their premium package but, honestly, for your basic graphic design needs you can do a lot for free. I find the app on my phone is as easy to use as the web version on my desktop.
There are a ton of free templates to use as a starting point. Once you’ve settled on a design, download and print your graphic on cardstock and use a paper cutter to cut it down to size. You can also take your file to a local printer if you aren’t confident your printer can handle the job.
We decided on a COVID “bubble” theme for our Valentines this year. I found the slogan floating around the internet. I designed and printed cards for myself and my teen daughter to give to our girlfriends. I kept it simple by using the same design for both of us but you can get as creative as you would like.
Once you’ve completed your card design, all you need to complete this simple craft are gift pouches or bags, bakers twine, and your treat. We chose to fill my daughter’s gift pouches with gumballs. We punched holes in the cards and tied them to the pouches with bakers twine. The gumballs and pouches were easy to find at our local party supply store.
I attached my cards to mini prosecco bottles and placed them in tissue filled gift bags.
