Have you seen Coco yet? My family saw it over Christmas vacation, and we loved it. Since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I thought I'd create a Coco printable Valentine in honor of the movie.
Coco Printable Valentine
What was your favorite part of Coco? I loved that it reminded me of the importance of teaching my children about their heritage. The Day of the Dead is not part of my culture, but I found myself wishing that I could do something like that with my family. Then I remembered Memorial Day (another holiday intended to honor the dead) is a part of my culture. Perhaps it's time to take that holiday a little bit more seriously, or to simply tell more stories about my family every day. Something to think about for sure.
Anyway -- back to the Coco printable Valentine! I loved the Un Poco Loco song from the movie, and I thought it made a perfect caption for my Valentine. (For those of you who don't speak Spanish, "un poco loco" means a little bit crazy.) So, if there's a special boy or girl who makes you feel a little bit crazy, this Valentine is just for you!
I created the Coco printable Valentine in three different formats -- two jpg files that you can have printed on photo paper, and one pdf file (with three to a page) that can be printed from your home printer on card stock. The two jpg files are slightly different. One (pictured above left) is meant to be trimmed on the edges so that you can use a hole punch on the card and insert a pixie stick. The other (pictured center) is meant to be used as is, without a pixie stick.
To insert the pixie stick, punch a hole at the top and bottom of the guitar with a hole punch. Before inserting the pixie stick, use a pencil or pen to enlarge the holes slightly. If you skip that step, the pixie stick will fit too tightly, and it might break open.
I'm trying something new
As always, my printables and tutorials are free, but today I'm starting something a little bit different. People have asked for an option to donate something in exchange for my printables. You can still download my printables for free, as usual. But -- if you would like to make a donation to my site as a thank you for the Valentine, please feel free to do so by clicking on the Site Donation Paypal button below. Any donation you make helps me bring you new ideas. Thank you!
