Sure Valentine’s Day is the day when most engagements happen…but what are the stats on break ups? My thoughts are break ups should never be bad, I prefer if they were fun! Here are 4 fun ways to give someone the flick.
1. Do it fresh…cut herbs
Fresh Thyme, Chive, Dill, Mint and some Bay Leaf
What to say:
ain’t got no THYME for you
quit you CHIVE talkin’
can’t even DILL
MINT to breakup with you earlier
you’re not my BAY, LEAF me alone
2. Take ’em to the farm
What you need:
Card Stock (I used white)
Fun colored paper (I used gingham parchment paper)
Toy Barnyard Animals
What to do:
•Think of witty puns involving barnyard animals and print on card stock leaving plenty of room in the middle to accommodate the toy animal.
Some examples include: “another valentine’s day and you still boar me.”, “wool you be my valentine?”, “i’ve got no beef with you, let’s be valentines.”, “some bunny loves you, too bad it’s not me. happy valentine’s day anyway.”, “you’re kind of a cool chick. let’s be valentines.”
•Cut a second piece of card stock just bigger than the first and glue on cute piece of colored paper (I used gingham parchment and yellow construction paper).
•Glue the printed valentine onto the center of the larger colored piece of paper.
•Cut a piece of glitter tape (or any tape) and tape the coordinating barnyard animal to the middle of the card.
•Use colored markers to adorn with hearts or sign your name or do whatever makes you feel better about yourself.
•Give away to those you love and love your sense of humor.
3. Surprise Them With A Twist on The Original
Waxy chocolates? NEVER.
Showy heart-shaped boxes filled with the unexpected, always.
What To Gather:
A few Empty Chocolate Heart Boxes (you can enjoy the chocolate later)
Fresh Fruit and Vegetables
1 stop at McDonald’s..
4. Make it sweet. Do it with a cupcake!
