If you're a fan of non-candy Valentines, these Washi Tape Valentine Bubbles are an easy, frugal project to do this holiday.
My girls and I were able to make a whole class worth's of bubble Valentines in a half hour for under $6.00–that's my kind of project!
I've recently fallen in love with Washi Tape, a Japanese paper tape that's trending all over the blogosphere. It is easy to work with and comes in all different colors and patterns.
One of my 6-year-old twins is really loving it. She has some dexterity issues but has been very successful decorating with Washi Tape.
Materials for Washi Tape Bubble Valentines
- Bridal Bubbles (from the wedding section of the craft store or Dollar Tree)
- Washi Tape (find it at Target, the craft store, or online)
- Valentine stickers
- fine-tip Sharpie
How to make Washi Tape Bubble Valentines
To make each one, just cut a strip of Washi Tape and wrap around the bubble bottle. Place a sticker on top.
We added the girls' names to the bottom of each bottle with a fine-tip Sharpie. You could also be a little fancier and do a tag with a little extra tape. I chose to keep it very simple!
With each child making 25 Valentines for their class, I love having a quick, simple project like this.
Washi Tape Bubble Valentines
- Wrap a strip of Washi Tape around each bubble bottle.

What section of Target is the washi tape in? I've been wanting to get some and didn't know they sold it, but I'm not at all sure where to look for it!

I've heard other bloggers say they've found it in the office supply section at Target, but I've never seen it at my store. My local store is small and not a Super Target, though. I buy mine online at ConsumerCrafts.com because the price is low and they offer $1.95 shipping every once in a while.
