1. DIY Valentines Vinyl Shirt for Daughters

DIY Valentines Vinyl Shirt for Girls

If you are looking for Cricut valentine shirt ideas for toddler girls (or for any other aged daughters), we have a super sweet DIY custom Valentine HTV t-shirt tutorial to share with you all.

For this tutorial, you will need either a Cricut Explore Air 2 or a Cricut Maker (or another cutting machine), as well as either an EasyPress or a Heat Press Machine.

You can find the full tutorial here on our website.

Tip: Stop using an iron to adhere your HTV. You will have much more control over your HTV application when you use a good quality heat press. See our favorite heat press machines in our guide here.


2. Adorable DIY Cricut Valentine Bookmarks 


These Valentines coloring bookmarks with the Cricut Maker (or another machine that has the ability to draw) are a great non-candy valentines gift option for classmates or friends. How cool would it be to gift one of these with a set of some coloring pencils – I think it is super cute!
