I "Wheelie" Like You {Simple Homemade Valentine}

I am the queen of procrastination. We are typically making Valentine's Day cards the night before we need to give them out to friends. We made these simple homemade I "wheelie" like you valentines last year and I never got around to posting about them... except for a brief share on Facebook

For materials we used cardstock, red paint, toilet roll tubes, scissors, car erasers, and a simple wheel printable that I made.


Grab some toilet paper rolls and bend them into a heart shape. Then dip them in paint and do some stamping! We also used our hands to paint too!

Let the paper dry and then cut it into small rectangles. Ours were probably 4x6 inches.

Print and cut out your wheel printables and then tape them onto each rectangle. We used double stick tape.

Tape or glue on a cheap car and you are finished! We used tiny car erasers that we found at Target.

Here are the simple printables I created for these I "wheelie" like you valentines:

Do you make homemade valentines or do you buy them?

  1. Love it! Thank you for sharing - I was thinking of doing SOMETHING for Aarya's friends and this one is awesome.

  2. I love how you are using that toilet paper roll to make the hearts AND then embellishing. I'm trying to get my kids to do a version of what you did.
