I Have to Hand It To You | Free Valentine’s Day Card Printable!

We totally had a plan for Louis’ Valentine’s Day cards but failed to make them happen.  So last night, we went to Michaels and wracked our brains for something quick and easy we could put together for his classmates.  I don’t know why ponybead friendship bracelets are so endearing to me…they just are!  So we decided to write out each of the kiddo’s names and gift them some new fun bracelets to wear.
