Animal Finger Puppet Valentines

*Notice: These have been wildly popular (pun intended) :), so I've made a newer version of this for your personal and educational use. The animals are sorted by background color. I've also added more animals! Please, check it out.

I saw a link on pinterest to paper/cardboard finger puppets that I thought were so cute, I decided to make them into Rosie's Valentine's.

They were super fun to make and I thought I would share them with you (Free Printables!). I give most of the credit to Rob for thinking up the puns as I am usually completely stumped when it comes to things like that.

These were the B&W PDFs printed on colored cardstock.
We don't have a color printer, so I made a b&w version as well as a color version. Just print them on cardstock, cut around the outside and cut out the bottom holes for the fingers to fit through, color them (optional), give them away! They then can cut the Valentine's sentiment off and have a puppet show!

P.S. I highly recommend you use a 5/8" circle punch like this if you are making a lot of these. My hands are sore and tired from cutting out those circles!

  4. If your man is pushing you away and acting distant

    Or if the guy you’re after isn’t giving you the time of day...

    Then it’s time to pull out all the stops.

    Because 99% of the time, there is only 1 thing you can say to a standoffish guy that will grab him by the heartstrings-

    And get his blood pumping at just the thought of you.

    Insert subject line here and link it to: <=========> Your ex won’t be able to resist?

    Once you say this to him, or even send this simple phrase in a text message...

    It will flip his world upside down and you will suddenly find him chasing you-

    And even begging to be with you.

    Here’s what I’m talking about: <=========> Is your man hiding something? He may need your help?

    Thanks again.
