It’s the night of February 13 and you are putting your child to bed and she tells you she needs Valentine’s Day cards for class the next day. WHAT?!!! Believe me, I’ve been there. Now, you could run to the store, but chances are pretty good that they are out of Valentine’s Day cards for the classroom. Been there! Instead, you can print Valentine’s Day cards at home.

Need last minute Valentine's Day cards for your child to take to school? Print them at home. I'll show you how I printed them with the Epson Expression XP-860 Small-in-One All-in-One printer. #Sponsored

I’m going to walk you through the steps here so you can easily follow along at 11:00 pm.

Printing Valentine’s Day Cards At Home

Step 1

Set your alarm for 30 minutes earlier than you usually wake up. Why? Because your child will need to fill out the Valentine’s Day cards before school in the morning.

Step 2

Download the classroom Valentine’s Day cards from the Epson CreativeZone. There are 2 options, kids and robots.

Step 3

Remember where you downloaded the file and open the PDF file with Adobe Reader. Print the PDF file onto cardstock paper.

I used the Epson Expression Premium XP-860 Small-in-One All-in-One printer and Epson Presentation Paper Matte.

I love the way the Valentine’s cards came out. My daughter was worried they wouldn’t look the same as the ones you buy, but she was really happy with them. The colors were vibrant and the ink didn’t smear across the paper when she was writing them out.

Step 4

We printed both the kids and the robots versions for variety.

Cut out the Valentine’s Day cards. I had my daughter do that, but if you are doing this late at night, you’ll need to do this yourself.

Go to bed knowing your child will have her Valentine’s Day cards tomorrow. Goodnight!

 

Step 6

Good Morning! This is the step your child can do in the morning. Fill out the Valentine’s Day cards with the names of the kids in the classroom (hopefully the teacher sent you a list.)

The Epson CreativeZone had so many projects that you can do with an Epson printer and paper. I spent hours searching it the other day and found so many fun crafts.

Tell me about a time you had to create a last minute project for your kids. Do you keep supplies at home so you don’t have to run out? We use our printer a lot to create posters for projects at the last minute.
