    Thank you so much for all of these links! I can’t wait to choose one for my toddler to share with his friends. Is there a current link for “you make my heart pop”?

    • Kimberleigh

      Hello China,
      Great question. Just click on the picture and it will take you to the original site the idea is from with all the great details.
      If the download link does not work, please reach out to their website.
      I hope this helps!

  5. Sally DePasquale

    I cannot access this one. Does it tell you where to get the insects?

    Attach a little love bug (20 for a $1.00) to these clever valentines.

    • Kimberleigh

      Hello Sally,
      Great question! Just click on the picture and it will take you to the original site the idea is from with all the great details.
      They will also be the best resource for the bugs- but we use cute ones from the Dollar Tree.
      I hope this helps!

  8. Taiya

    Cute ideas but half the links don’t work 🙁

    • Ashley

      Hi Taiya,
      I’m sorry that a few of the links didn’t work. As this was a “round-up” post, we are not always alerted to when other blogs or sites choose to take their post (or entire blogs) down. We do still hope you found some wonderful ideas!
      Hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
