Barcode Valentines

If you want the new and improved “spy” version of these QR Code Valentines check out this post!

Hi everyone!  I have a little confession. Online I throw the word love around a lot but in person, I am really kind of shy and reserved. Not so much with my kids but with most other people in my life.  Can you relate? I think a lot of kids probably can too.

I recently got a request from my sister to turn these Valentines into something more reserved.The suggestion was to change the message to simply say Happy Valentine’s Day.  I thought this was a great idea but I also though maybe we could make it a little more fun!  To read this message you must scan with a bar code reader app on a smart phone.  I have QRRReader for iPhone   I think most people have smart phones or access to one now.  The message simply says, “Happy Valentine’s Day!” and it was very easy to generate the code at this site so it you want to get a little more clever with the message you could easily make your own.

For these…

Simply print out the following PDF: Valentines double sided on card-stock.  Then cut along the gray lines including the top and bottom tabs.  Fill them out, fold along the dotted lines, and lock the tabs together to close.

By the way, I updated the print-out so “to” is on the outside and “from” is on the inside (unlike the photo) which makes distribution easier.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Love (blush),
