But if you’re here for these ruler valentine day printable for kids, let’s get to making some for the kids’ Valentines party!
What You Need to Make Ruler Valentine Printables
- Printable Valentines (GET THE DOWNLOAD AT THE END OF THE POST)
- Exacto knife
Now, you might be asking: what size ruler?! And that’s an easy question to answer. Any ruler, pretty much. You can give the kids those fun clear ones (that’s what we picked), wood ones, or whatever.
Special rulers are not required to make these printables work–just nothing wider than the card, which is easy–because it’s wider than the typical ruler.
How to Make Ruler Valentines for Kids
Print as many of the PDF file of the valentine cards on card stock as you want and cut out the out around the outside border.
With the exacto knife, cut a slit about an inch long on each end of the valentine card.
Slide the rulers through the slits on each card and enjoy!
Nice and easy, huh?! I love it, seriously. But before you race off to grab your card stock, lets talk about a few questions I’ve gotten about these.
Do you have to use Card Stock to Make this Valentines Day Card?
No, you don’t HAVE to use card stock, so if you’re having trouble finding some, you can always just use regular printer paper to print this free valentine. It’s just not going to stand up to as much abuse as your kiddo takes their super cute Valentine day cards to school.
So, yes, you can use printer paper. But do I recommend it for these free printable valentines? No.
I’m Afraid the Rulers are Going to Slide Out Before Delivery–What Can I Do?
Ok. So, first, I overthink everything, so it does not surprise me at all in the least that I have seriously thought this through. I am, indeed, concerned that the kiddos will, before they can even give them to their friends, drop all of the rulers out.
That would seriously be exactly what happened to me when I was a kid, so it’s really not a far fetched idea. As a result, I cut the slits to be fairly snug on the rulers, trying to stay at just wider than the ruler, and not much more.
If you’re concerned about the same thing, but you don’t want to cut the slits to be super tight (that was a little over the top of me), you could also put tape on the back from one side of the slit to the other, holding the ruler in place.
I just didn’t think of that until now.
