I know I already posted another version of the "I love watching our friendship grow" valentine earlier this month, but I realize that not everyone wants to spend a dollar per valentine. So this alternate version gives you the same CANDY-FREE sentiment but for about 1/5 the price.
All you need is a pack of seeds (I got mine for 20c/each at Wal-Mart, and I also saw them at the dollar store for the same price) and some card stock.
I had a Happy Valentine's Day stamp in my craft supplies, but you could write it by hand (or print it along with your personalized message.)
I glued everything together with a glue stick:
I only tied the heart-shaped tag onto mine because I had leftover tags from the other version of this valentine...
...and I had already punched holes in them (shhhh.. I never said I wasn't
If I was going to do it again I would just glue the heart onto the Valentine, maybe even sticking out of the pot next to the seeds.
It was a really easy, cost-effective project.. 15 valentines for $3! Cheaper (and a lot cuter) than store-bought!
