Free Star Wars Valentine PrintablePosted by MeckMom on Feb 4, 2011 in Popular Posts: Free Printables, Popular Posts: Holiday, Recent Posts | 40 comments
Ok, ok. I know you’re probably getting tired of hearing about circle punches and cardstock but I’ve got one more free printable for you. You see, my nine year-old son, Jack, informed me that Valentine’s Day is far too girly of a holiday and he needed something cool to hand out to his friends. We debated a few options and finally settled on the ultimate manly theme – STAR WARS. After all, nothing says “I don’t do hearts and ribbons” like this guy.
I did a search online for Star Wars valentines but found a very sad selection. Out of options, I decided to crack open Adobe Illustrator and whip out my own. Here’s what we came up with.
Jack was very insistent that his favorite characters be included so I had to wrack my brain to come up with Valentines slogans. Do you know how hard it is to come up with something lovey-dovey that goes with the evil Darth Maul? My personal favorite is Obi Wan’s message – ‘Ken-o-bi’ My Valentine? Ewan McGregor never looked so good.
Although the valentines themselves are pretty cool, we wanted to take it one step further by adding a little chocolate. Jack voted for Reeses Peanut Butter cups & Rolos (because they’re sorta spaceship shaped). We added all his favorite Star Wars headshots to give the treats an the extra-special touch. FYI: They’re cut with a 3/4″ circle punch.
Most of you long-time readers know the drill for making these cute, strike that, macho circles. If you’re new here, you can see a quick tutorial by visiting my girlier valentine printable here. FYI: the baggie size I used is 3″x4″. I found a huge pack of them in WalMart’s craft section for about $2.
I’ll add the printables for both the baggie toppers and the headshot circles below (click the file name, not the images). I hope you all enjoy them. Feel free to share them on your blogs and social network pages. I just ask that you don’t post the actual file on your site – please link back to this post for the download. Thanks, everyone and may the force be with you!
