Love is in the Air Class Valentines

Looking for a fun class Valentine's idea that doesn't involve more candy?
It doesn't get much easier than this one. Especially when you use the Avery printable tags like we did this time.

All you have to do is upload the design we made for you (or create your own on the Avery website), print out and tear along the perforated edges. No cutting required.

• Avery Printable Tags (template 22802)
• red twine (found in the $1 section at Michaels)
• heart shaped latex balloons (found these at Party City)

• Save the Love is in the Air tag to your computer 
• Open the Avery website
• Type in the product number in the Quick Search box (22802 for these tags)
• After choosing the tall tags, select All Designs and double-click on the blank tag
• Open Images on the left side of the screen and open the image from your computer
• Once it opens, drag the corners until the design fits on the tag
• Then Preview & Print (make sure to follow their instructions for printing) - you might need to print it on a piece of regular paper first to make sure it lines up properly on the tag sheet. hold it up into the light to see better. then, if you need to, make Printer Adjustments

Of course, you can also design your own tags too. Just use the different options available under the Customize tab. 

Once your tags are finished, tie them onto the end of each heart-shaped balloon and have your child sign their name across the arrow. 

And they're all ready to go.


Have you used Avery tags or labels before? Which Avery product is your favorite?


  1. These are so insanely cute! I wish my kid was into cute Valentines with clever messages! I made some yesterday and he was not impressed. I love the Avery labels! They make everything so much easier! Pinning these!

  2. These are very cute. But, saying this as a teacher: Please, for the love of God, do NOT send un-inflated balloons to your child's whole classroom! The attempting to blow up, the crying over not being able to blow up, the crazy noise as they let go of a half-inflated balloon, flying all over the classroom... oh, the teacher-nightmare.

  3. Which font did you use for the "love" part? It's so cute and western-like.

    1. That font is Tightrope... and you can find it here...

  4. As a teacher, I would like to add that many classrooms have latex allergies and latex balloons are not allowed at many of the schools in my area. You might want to check first.

  5. Come on, as a teacher, this is cute. Just tell the kids not to blow it up until they get home... just like you don't let them eat every piece of candy they have received....

  6. This is one of the cutest Valentines I've seen!

  7. In our schools, they don't get to pass out Valentines until the end of the day and they go straight into their Valentine boxes. Kids are not allowed to open Valentines at school. We can't send candy to school, so this is a great non-candy option. Thank you!

  8. These are adorable! Thank you for sharing!

  9. Found this via the post over at Nine and Sixteen. Making this for my six and four year old to pass out. Super cute. Thanks!
