What to Do

Begin by downloading and printing the Valentine’s Day paper chain printable. We recently signed up for the HP Instant Ink program and are loving it! They offer several different plans (such as $4.99 for 100 pages a month) and will automatically send you new cartridges before you even need them. We are now saving SO MUCH money (and time) on ink and I don’t feel guilty printing out new printables and playdough mats each day. If you want to check it out, ordering through our link here will give you one free month of service. You can use just about any HP printer but we’ve been using this compact one and absolutely love it! The color is gorgeous and matches my decor (we’ll call that a win!) and the size is smaller than any printer I’ve ever owned which is great for small spaces (or living room/dining room offices). Between HP Instant Ink and our compact printer, my printing life truly has become so much easier to print all these fun playdough mats and activity sheets we’ve been making lately.

Once you’ve printed your Valentine’s Day paper chains, cut them out.

Next, begin by gluing the end of one paper chain and press it together to make a link.

Then, add another strip of paper through the link you just glued and glue it closed just as you did with the first link. Continue adding strips until you have the desired number of links on your Valentine’s Day paper chain.

  1. I’m so impressed with everyone’s early Valentine’s Day posts! This is a super cute project. I’ve been looking into the Instant Ink program and I’m afraid we would use way more than the allotted pages. How many pages do you end up printing a month?

    1. Thank you! I debated about joining the Instant Ink program for months and then finally did it and I am so glad I did! I’ve saved so much money and I love that they send you the ink cartridges before you even need them so I don’t have to worry about ordering them or running out. I started out on the 100 pages a month plan but we were printing a bit more than that every month so I moved to the 300 pages a month plan and I ended up not using that many so the pages I didn’t use rolled over. I periodically check my account online just to make sure I haven’t gone over but so far I haven’t. Last month I printed 160 pages. 🙂
