Baseball valentine card idea

There’s so much excitement in our household over this year’s homemade valentine cards. The only thing my boys love more than baseball, is getting to chomp on Big League Chew bubble gum while playing baseball!! So, what could be better than combining all their favorite things into a valentine card to pass out to their classmates? The answer, my friends, is nothing (hahaha)… they are so proud of these valentines!

The idea for this project came to me a while back and I had a very specific vision in my head. I’m so thrilled to be teaming up with Big League Chew and Shyla Contreras of HobKnobin.com to make my idea come to life. In today’s post I’m giving step-by-step instructions on how to create these adorable baseball-themed valentines, along with the FREE printable I created. Let’s get started!

HOW TO MAKE BIG LEAGUE CHEW VALENTINES

Materials needed for valentine card project

Materials:
(1) Big League Chew gum pouches come in a variety of flavors. We used Groundball Grape.
(2) Shyla makes the absolute cutest 4” long mini wood bats. They are high-quality, unfinished maple wood bats and are sold in a variety of quantities. Between my two boys, I needed 50 for both their classes.
(3) Card stock 8.5” x 11” (I used white)
(4) Scissors
(5) Single-hole punch
(6) Red & white twine
(7) FREE printable PDF:  BIG LEAGUE CHEW VALENTINE

Free printable valentine cards

Print desired amount of “Valentine, You’re in a League of Your Own” cards. Either print them the size they are, or adjust the scale on the print menu. I adjusted it to 80% before printing. Cut out the cards (four per page).

Gum pouch, mini bat, twine and valentine card

For each valentine you’ll need one card, one gum pouch, one mini bat, and twine to tie it all together. I cut my twine into 18” pieces. PRO TIP: Keep the string on the longer side because it’s easier to work with. You can always cut off excess at the end.

Tying know with twine

Finished baseball valentine cards for kids

Place card in desired spot on gum pouch, and punch a hole thru both pieces. Take your 18” long piece of twine and tie once. Then wrap the twine around the bat twice before tying a knot with a bow.

    This is a major throwback! The wooden bats details give it that extra touch to go with the Big League logo, I’m sure everyone loved it.
