We are in Valentine mode over here at our house, and I wanted to share with you some Valentine’s I’m putting together for my children to pass out to their friends at school.
My oldest Ezra is quite the sports fanatic, so I knew that anything to do with sports, he would be in!
I saw some cute basketball Valentine’s over on Minted, but of course didn’t get my act together to get them ordered in time, so I put together my own version of the Slam Dunk Valentine!
I also came across these fun basketball pens over on Oriental Trading.  I knew my Ezra would be obsessed with them since they resemble one of his favorite toys, the Kendama (He also sells Kendama’s, he’s quite the little business man)
There are so many little basketball items you could use instead out there.  Small foam balls, dollar store balls, basketball stickers, basketball chocolates, basketball bouncy balls.  Just browse your local dollar store or party store, and I’m sure there will be a lot of choices.
I tried to make these simple with just black ink so anyone could print them off, and not need a color printer.  The key is to use orange card stock paper to print them on so they resemble little basketballs!  I think the textured orange card stock is cool since it looks kind of like the texture of a real basketball!
 Basketball Valentine Download
You will need to download the free printable, and print it onto orange card stock paper.
Download the free printable, by clicking here.
I also just need to remind my readers that when I offer free printable downloads, it takes me a long time to create, and it is my property.  I am allowing you to use them for your personal use only.  It is not ok to alter, or sell this file or use for commercial use in any way.  I feel bad that I have to point this out, but recently it came to my attention that someone was selling my free printables on Etsy using my photos and downloads.  I can’t imagine why people would think that it is ok to steal someones work to sell?  But, just don’t do it.  Because the internet is a small world, and people always find out.  Plus, my lawyer husband will have to write you a letter, and let’s just not have to do that, ok? Anyhow, moving on..
After you print out the PDF onto orange card stock, cut out the basketballs.
Address the basketballs to your favorite friends, and attach the pen to the paper basketball with a little tape.  I like to use washi Japanese tape.

    I have tried a couple times and cannot get the basketball valentines to print. Any advice. I bought the pens and am looking forward to making there.
