Do you love sushi? Or Valentine's Day? How about Sushi Valentines?! We are currently living in the land of sushi and Japan goes crazy for Valentine's Day. It's hard not to go overboard when you see all of the cute stuff in the store! The kids and I love choosing just the right Valentines for friends, but this year all of my searches kept coming up short. We never found quite the right thing so I decided to get on Canva and create my own. Naturally I thought of you all and I knew I wanted to make a blog post out of it in case you love giving cute, homemade Valentines, too!
As long as you have access to a printer and you can save the image, then you can make this Valentines card for all of your special people. You can keep it simple or make it fancy. You can even have your kids throw them together the night before the school party (I know I'm not alone here!)
Here are the basic supplies you'll need:

These sushi-themed Valentines are good for:
surprising your forever-Valentine!
I love that these Valentines make it easy to surprise your loved ones with a homemade card! (Who doesn't like getting a special homemade Valentine?!) If you want to add to your Valentine's Day celebration you could also grab a platter of sushi from your favorite take out place and then attach this card to it. If you really want to bring things full circle, check out the Michelin Guide to pairing sushi with wine. Grabbing a bottle of Chablis or Riesling to go with the sushi would make for a perfect evening at home.
This Valentine is also great if your kids go to a candy-free school or if you want to avoid extra candy. But if you want to use cute washi tape and attach this Valentine to a box of chocolates I don't think anyone will be upset about it! If you're scrambling to figure out Valentines this year, I'm sure you even have some disposable chopsticks laying around the house. I think my favorite thing about this is how easy it is to customize it for whatever you have! You can really make it your own from the color of paper to the type of chopsticks you use.
If you're having trouble printing the image below just send me an email or a message on Instagram and I'll send the JPG file to you directly. If you choose to use these sushi-themed Valentines this year please tag me so I can see how you personalize them!
Inspiration for this post came from several Pinterest, Etsy, and internet searches. I then pieced together the perfect Valentine that would be easy for you to print at home, no matter where you are in the world! Two of my favorite blogs I came across were "Perry's Plate" and "The Craft Blog." Maybe you'll be inspired to look at other creations to make your perfect Valentines!
