Naturally Sweet DIY Valentine

January 31st, 2011


*UPDATE: The Fruit Stickers are now available for purchase through my Etsy Shop

Happy Monday everyone! For some reason Valentine’s Day really has a hold on me this year. I’ve always felt that you don’t need a fancy card or expensive gift to let someone know you love them. For me, it’s the little gestures that I always remember the most. In that spirit I present to you Valentines Day Fruit stickers!

Just Download the PDF, (for a limited time only) print onto sticker paper, cut out with a 1″ craft punch, and apply to your special someone’s favorite fruit. They’re sure to smile when they see what’s snuck into their school or work bag! I made stickers for apples, pears, oranges, bananas, passion fruit, blue berries and a general one for everything else! Enjoy, xoxo

    such a great idea! just shared it on Kid Appeal’s FB page. We’re always looking for natural wholesome ways to celebrate the holidays. we tried approaching PK and 1st grade teachers with a “real red food” valentines day party and didn’t get much traction. too much effort, but this, is simple genius. more on real red food party here:

    Thanks so much for sharing :).

    I delivered a lovely bowl of fruit to his office this afternoon; Monday is his long day, teaching from 2:30- 9:00 without much of a break, so FOOD was a much better idea than just sweets this year. Our little town doesn’t have the sort of store that boasts passionfruit, but I did find a passionfruit drink to make good use of that sticker.

  22. Katie Says:

    I love this idea

  23. Shay Says:

    Hey! I just wanted to give you a heads up that I think someone’s trying to rip off your idea – she doesn’t even give you credit in her post.

  24. Kathleen Says:

    Hi Shay, Thanks for the heads up. She actually does include a link to my site in her post. I appreciate you getting in touch though, it’s nice to know that people are keeping an eye out for each other. Best, Kathleen

  25. Michelle Says:

    I saw this on a blog last week and forgot to bookmark it. I’m so glad I found it again randomly via twitter (yay). So pleased because I love this idea. So clever. I hope you don’t mind me posting on my blog.
