"Have a Ball" Homemade Valentine Printable Tags

I had a fabulous reader, Dawn, email me last week with a request.

First off, let me tell you guys, that I LOVE when you send in suggestions or ideas for projects/printables.
It's so fun to hear what you guys come up with and I love being able to put some of them into action.

Dawn had seen a cute saying (I think via Pinterest) and wanted some printables that she could use for her son's valentines.

Ooooh. The gears started turning.

I ended up making both some bag topper printables (like the ones used at my son's pirate party here)
and also some cute tags.
The tags would be easy to put on anything- bags, little boxes, homemade cards.

There are two color versions- one more for girls, and one more boy-ish.
And after sharing them with Dawn, I wanted to share them with all of you in case you needed any last minute valentine ideas!!!

You can find bouncy balls pretty cheap at craft or party stores and Oriental Trading has bulk options.

The tags above can easily be customized to add your child's name with a program like Picnik or Photoshop.
Or you can have them handwrite it in the blank :)

Here are the cute bag toppers in case you'd rather go the ziploc bag route:
Just click on the file name at the bottom of the post, print and then fold over the top of a ziploc bag.

I used the tags for little man's valentines.
I have these cute little boxes (which you'll see more about next week)
and all I did was tuck the bouncy ball in, tie it up all pretty and add the printed tag.
Easy peasy.

As with all my free printables,
these are for personal use ONLY.
Please do not claim them as your own or alter them.
Printables are for Tattered and Inked readers only.

What do you think? Would they make cute valentines?
I hope you guys like them and they make getting homemade valentine cards ready a little easier :)

I'll be back later today to share some other awesome home-made valentines that I've found!!

Have a fabulous Friday!

  8. Hi! I love this printable! I just have a quick question. When I download the "have a ball" tag it only has one large one per page? Is there a way to put 4 or 6 to a page? Thanks, Susan

    1. That's kinda strange. Usually if you save it to the computer, you can click print (or right click and print) and it should give you several options to print in different sizes. You could try pasting it into a word document and get several on a page. I do that a lot when I want to fill all the space the best I can :) Hope that helps a little!


Reading your comments makes my day!!! I'd love for you to leave me some love and make me smile :)
