DIY Slap Bracelets Valentines

Ah Valentines day, I use to love this time of year when I was kid. Back in the 1980's, the entire classroom didn't get Valentines. It was whoever wanted to give you one, so not knowing who liked you or who was your true friends was always a surprise at the end of the day.
My son is in 4th grade, so assuming he can get another year out of Valentines. {Not sure when they stop doing this in school?} We want to make these last years amazing. I have always dodged the store bought paper Valentines and the ones with candy, in a effort to make something handmade and not offered anywhere else. To stand out from the crowd. I ENJOY this and being a mom in general.
We searched Pinterest for handmade Valentines ideas and found the one we wanted to do this year, slap bracelets!! I found this on skiptomylou Blog and had to do it!! Slap bracelets were the THING back in the day. Do I sound old or what? These were super simple & fun to make

What you'll need:
Slap bracelets, we bought ours on Amazon in bulk here, for $11.99 free shipping for Prim members
White Heavy card stock, bought ours at Walmart
xacto knife to cut the slits for bands to go through on the cards
The printable file can be found over on Skiptomylou's blog in link above
That's it! Hopefully this gives you a great idea for next year!
