This year’s Valentines printable is a modern take on one of my favorite childhood snacks :: Spam musubi (pronounced “MOO-soo-bee” – not “moo-SOObee,” Andrew Zimmern). If you’re unfamiliar, Spam musubi is a beloved Hawaiian snack made of nori (seaweed), rice, and spam. In my family, musubi is a coveted staple brought to holiday potlucks and birthday parties. The second it gets set down on a table, you can expect it to disappear within ten minutes. Mmmm.
Happy Valentine’s Day, fellow Pacific Islanders!
These miniature cards are a breeze to make: just print, cut, and fold! They fit perfectly in a coin envelope and sit nicely atop a fresh musubi.
- Printable PDF | “Musubi Mine Valentine” (click to download)
- A printer
- Matte photo paper or card stock
- A paper trimmer OR a cutting mat, X-acto knife, and metal ruler
1. To make the mini Valentines, simply print the PDF on a sheet of matte photo paper or card stock. Use your high quality (or photo quality) print setting for best results. Note :: Each 8.5″ x 11″ sheet fits 6 cards; each folded card measures 2″ x 3.5″.
2. Using the marks on the PDF, trim your cards. Each flat card measures 4″ wide by 3.5″ tall.
3. Fold each card in half.
4. If you want to give the card some texture, use glitter glue to mimic grains of rice.
5. Let dry and stick in a coin envelope. I used glassine envelopes because they remind me of rice paper. :) Seal with washi tape or a sticker.
