Valentine’s Day is about Love right? We all know the best way to show someone just how much we love and care for them is through a thoughtful gift. These Valentine’s Day Scratch Off Tickets are exactly that! You can customize your card and then give to your kids or significant other as a fun way to show them your love and appreciation.
This idea came while browsing Pinterest but unfortunately the link was a dead link and I struggled to find the origination of this brilliant idea. There are many other scratch off ticket directions but this particular one had something very unique about it.
All the other pins I found required the use of contact paper. This scratch off ticket pin however, used a white crayon instead!
How to Make Valentine’s Day Scratch Off Tickets
- Heavy Paper
- White Crayon
- Acrylic Paint
- Dish-washing Soap
Print off this free printable onto card stock or make your own.
Write three ‘gifts’ onto the card.
Color over each gift with white crayon (heavily).
Mix 2 parts acrylic paint with 1 part dish-washing soap.
Paint over the handwritten gifts.
Dry and Give!
Valentine’s Day Scratch Off Ticket Verdict:
This pin definitely worked! I am glad I tried the white crayon rather than the contact paper. Not only do I not have any contact paper handy but I also can only imagine how much more effort would have had to go into this and for no real reason. The paint scratched off perfectly!
I can see so many fun ways to use the DIY Scratch Off Ticket idea. I am thinking of making a bunch of them with my kids that will list fun games and things to do. Then when someone claims they are bored we can pull out a scratch off ticket and scratch off a fun idea/game!
I also found where others made Valentine’s Day Scratch Off Tickets that revealed the “10 Reasons I Love You” which I thought was super romantic!
This totally works and is going to be a lot of fun!!
