Hi, it’s Ruby! In December, I wrote about how to make DIY Disney Christmas Ornaments. But today, I will be teaching you how to make 2 Disney-Style valentines. They are easy, customizable and full of personality!
Princess Heart Valentines
- Sticker of desired princess
- Colored scrapbook paper
- Heart template
- Glue stick or glue gun
- White doilies
- Pens and pencils
- Embellishments (stickers, glitter, gems, etc.)
1. First you must pick a princess so you know what colors you will need. My sister picked Ariel, so we got some glittery teal scrapbook paper. Next, find something in the shape of a heart that is to your liking. Trace around it with a pencil on your paper, and then cut it out.
2. Find a good sticker of the princess you chose. Place it anywhere you’d like.
3. Add your embellishments. You can write the date, a quote or someone’s name in gel pen/pencil, cut out shapes or words; whatever you’d like!
4. Take a doily and glue it to the back of your paper heart. And now you have an easy-to-make, personalized valentine!
I also made a Belle one where I added the embellishments on top of the doily. Credit to my sister, Eve, not only for creating this craft, but also for designing the Tiana, Rapunzel and Ariel ones 🙂
Sully & Boo Card
What You’ll Need:
- Scrapbook paper
- Glue stick or photo corners
- Markers, pens or pencils
- Photocopy of a drawing, photo, etc.
- Any embellishments you can find like glitter, stickers, etc.
1. You need something to be on the front of your card. Copy a photo or a drawing, use a coloring book image or print out a collage you made on your phone. I used a collage that I made on on my favorite app, PicCollage. (They have new Valentine’s Day backgrounds and lots of fonts that I really like. The possibilities are endless on PC because you have access to web images, stickers and even more!) My finished product was a picture of the drawing Boo made for Sully from Monsters Inc., with the words “You make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside” on it. Once you pick your image cut it out the way you like it.
2. Pick out a piece of colored scrapbook paper and fold it in half like a card. Figure out where you want to place your picture. I centered mine in the middle.
3. Use a glue stick, photo corners or whatever you like to paste the picture to the front of the card. I used photo corners.
4. Use your favorite embellishments to finish the front of the card! You can use glitter as a boarder, write or draw something, place down stickers, etc. I used glittery foam stickers to outline the picture.
5. Open the inside and write the date and a short message. Decide what else you think the card needs, and add it!
I think that this would be a great card for your dad or grandpa, since Sully is a kind of father figure to Boo. But you could use any picture/quote. This is just one take on it.
If you don’t have time to make your own valentines this year, then you can go to Target. They have a great supply of pre-made Disney cards. I saw some themed ones like Guardians of the Galaxy, Princesses, Star Wars Rebels, Frozen, and Disney Junior. My personal favorite was the Big Hero 6 pack, which I purchased!
Target also has cool Disney chocolate boxes. They had ones for Disney Palace Pets, Star Wars, Cars (that looked like a tool box!) and much more! If you need any Disney Valentines Day stickers they have those too.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post. The great thing about these crafts is that the left over supplies can be used next year! You’d be surprised how much stuff you can find around the house that can be used in crafts like these. Just let your creative #DisneySide show this Valentines Day, and these crafts will be fun and simple.
Before you leave I have a few questions for you:
Do you celebrate Valentines Day Disney-Style? Do you make your own cards, and if you do, are they Disney themed? Anymore thoughts or questions? Tell me in the comments below, I’d love to hear from you!
Thanks for listening and have a magical Valentines Day!- Ruby 8:)
