Fish Bowl Valentine {Free Download!}

For the past week, I've been busy working on the kids Valentine's.  Usually I just go with store bought Valentine's.  The kids are always happy with that and it gets me off the hook for creating something fun!  But this year, I decided to get crafty.   While the idea wasn't my own {thank you, Pinterest, for the idea and inspiration!}, the creation is all mine!

I created this the old school way - by hand!  I did not use Photoshop {though I wish I knew how!}

I started by drawing an outline of a fishbowl...

Then I got out my watercolors and started painting....

Once I was satisfied with my work, I scanned the image into my computer and added some fun fonts.

The one that I created for Emmie says "Valentine, You're the only fish in the sea for me!"  Click here to download this free image.

If you would like to create your own fish bowl valentine, then you will need the following supplies:

* fish bowl valentines {download here or here} * swedish fish * cellophane bag * red ribbon

{note: I purchased my cellophane bags at Target in the party and gift wrap aisle.}

Print fish bowl design onto white card stock.  Cut out bowl.  Place in cellophane bag with either gold fish or swedish fish. And tie the top with a ribbon!

Have a great Valentine's Day! jen
