Ahh, it is the season of hearts and pink and red! Now that winter is officially here, I am excited to see the pop of color that Valentine's day brings! I am bringing back this FREE printable for your little loves this Valentine's Day!
My boys are my world, of course. And they know I love them. But it's Valentine's day and I want to give them a little something that goes beyond a box of chocolates. I created this fun printable file of four kid-friendly coupons you can gift your kids this year too. Simple fun ideas for an extra bedtime story to a child-picked outing. Package them with ribbon, or make an accordion envelope to hold them. Details and a how-to below!

Accordion Envelope DIY
This is a fun way to package your coupons that you can use for lots of different applications once you see how simple it is!
You will need:
-Printed Valentine Coupons
-A glue stick
-Scissors or blade
-4 A2 size envelopes (they old a 4.25x5.5" card)
-Any other crafty supplies for decorating (washi tape, buttons, ribbon, bakers twine, stickers)
First, trim your printed coupons down the middle both vertically and horizontally to get four cards. Next, apply glue to the entire flap of one envelope (the side with the seal), line it up and seal it to the back of a second envelope. Repeat with the remaining envelopes to form a row of pockets. Last, fill each pocket with a single card, then alternate folding until you have created a small packet. I trimmed the last flap off of mine to create a neat edge. Now you can decorate the envelopes to your heart's content! I chose a simple bakers twine bow for the sample.
Once the flaps are glued to the back of the adjacent envelope, you will have a row of pockets as shown above.
Use buttons, washi tape, stickers, twine and ribbon to decorate your coupon envelope. Be creative and have fun!
We're all thinking it. Wow! How on earth can it be January again? Wasn't it just spring/summer/Thanksgiving... Christmas? What a whirlwind of a year 2014 was for the Polkadot Paper Company, for my business and my family.
I guess as our responsibilities build up, time just seems to go faster and faster. I know now that I live my life watching my children, it's amazing how fast they grow, how days can seem so long sometimes, but in a blink of an eye a whole year has gone. In a way, my business has seemed that way too. Some projects take way too long, but before I know it, I look up and I'm amazed at how much I have accomplished. For this, I am grateful. Every year is better and better - in many ways. My product designs growing, the orders stacking up, the ideas overflowing.
I am excited about some big plans for the upcoming year and taking my business one notch higher. I have a brand new mission statement (which I'll share soon), a list of goals, and a whole new year to work on my dreams! Thank you so much for your support so far. If you're new here, thank you too, I couldn't do it without all of you.
That being said, Happy New Year!! I hope you have some dreams and goals to work on this year too. Tell me about your plans, I'd love to hear it!
Come follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest, and let's grow ourselves together!
