Valentine’s Day Countdown (with free printable)

Happy Monday! I have a fun Valentine’s Day countdown calendar for you today. Count down to Valentine’s day with little love notes for the ones you love.

Can you believe that Valentine’s Day is exactly one month away from today? It’s coming up fast! I love the classic look of envelopes sealed with a heart.

To make this simple countdown, we made our own mini kraft envelopes. I wanted small envelopes, and I didn’t have any little ones on hand. You can buy them or make them for this project. If you decide to make them, we first started with a 5×5 inch square of kraft card stock. Using the Martha Stewart Crafts score board and the little envelope measurement tool on the back side, we scored the envelope and cut little notches out for easy folding. I then used my low temp hot glue gun to keep the envelope together and add the pink heart. These envelopes are not sealed closed. They are lightly taped down for easy opening and closing.

For the word love in the center of the calendar and the numbers on the envelopes, I used small American Crafts thickers. For the backdrop, I made this DIY distressed wood backdrop. I made it a while ago, but it works great for this countdown calendar. You could also just use a foam core board found in the school supplies section of most big stores.

Now for the fun part…the sweet little love notes. There are 8 little notes to a page, so you’ll need to print it out twice for the calendar. The notes fit great in these mini envelopes.

*Update: Due to the popularity of this printable file, it’s now being offered as a dollar download. For just $1 you can print it as many times as you’d like.

Now it’s up to you how you fill them…little notes, movie tickets, gift cards or little candies.

Happy counting down!
