Valentine’s Day is generally a no.big.deal type of holiday around here. We love each other all the time, you know?
However, this year, I feel like making a bit of a fuss about it. A very small fuss, but a fuss nonetheless.
Last week Newt and I spent a happy hour making homemade Valentines for a party she is attending tomorrow. It was so much fun to to create with paper scissors and glue. And the end result was very sweet… just not very Newt. Pink hearts are not really her thing. We decided that the creative process was more fun than the actual Valentines; those we’ll keep and use for postcards. Over the weekend, we set out to come up with something better.
These are definitely Newt:
We are both fans of Dr. Who, so these were especially fun to create. With plenty of input from Newt and images we found online (used either with permission or under a creative commons license, credit above), I whipped them up in a jiffy. I printed them on a glossy postcard paper pilfered from Walt’s home office. The pilfered paper was perforated (hee) so Newt could easily tear the Valentines out. Besides making them super easy (no cutting) it also left slightly ragged edges which give them a “from the box” feeling that is sort of fun.
If you would like to print some for your own use, feel free. Just please do not use them for commercial purposes. I took Newt’s name off so you can personalize them yourself.
Now, aren’t you glad I made a fuss?
