My little preschooler loves hearts AND I love Valentine’s Day. So I made her the CUTEST Valentine’s Day Conversation Hearts Headband that we both love! This easy Valentine craft requires no sewing, so anyone can make it.

Do you see the bribery up there?! Yes, a little chocolate always makes pictures easier with a 3 year old!

I used my new Canon TS6020 Printer and check out those vibrant colors it printed!

I didn’t realize it, but her headband reads, “Love you forever, Sweetie.” And um, totally perfect, right?! Love a happy accident!

So want to see how I used my printer to make a headband?

Valentine’s Day Conversation Heart Headband Tutorial


  • Printable Heat Transfer Paper {I used this kind}
  • Inkjet Printer {I used my new Canon TS6020 Printer, which prints nice and fast and has a sleek, modern design.}
  • Scissors
  • Iron
  • White Elastic Headband
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Craft Felt

Canon printer

  1. First, I printed out conversation heart designs with my Canon TS6020 printer.

This wireless printer is so cool! It prints beautiful colors with a faster print speed and the design is totally rad. Above it is all folded out for printing, but when I’m done, look how it folds up to be very compact {see picture below}.

Love the modern design. Oh and as a crafter, I love that it has the option for rear loading for different materials. Plus there’s a cassette for regular paper. So I use the rear load for crafting and the cassette for regular printing. Which is very handy. There are 4 models in the new TS series. Go check them out here to find your Picture Perfect Match!

2. Then cut out the conversation hearts. I actually used my Silhouette Cameo to cut mine out, but scissors work fantastic as well. {note: the conversation heart designs are from the Silhouette shape library.}

3. Peel off the paper backing.

4. Place conversation heart onto a small piece of coordinating felt and iron according to transfer paper directions.

5. Cut around the conversation heart leaving a thin border of felt. Repeat Steps 3-5 for two more conversation hearts.

6. Then hot glue the conversation hearts onto the headband, overlapping them slightly.

    I reeeeaaalllllllly need a new printer!! Mine doesn’t work with windows 10. I don’t like windows 10, but that is what I have, so I’m stuck with it. With my old computer, I didn’t have any problems, but, like I said, it doesn’t work now. I can’t believe all of the projects that I want to copy, now that I can’t. I would love to win this printer!!

    The printer we have doesn’t do a great job at printing photos, crafts, etc like this one seems to do!

    I would love to win this printer because I am in college and do not have a printer. I have to go to the library when i need to print anything. It would be so much easier if i had a printer of my own

    My old printer gets crooked at the bottom of each page, making pattern printing not work so well. I’d use a new printer to print out patterns for spring/summer clothes for the kids. Thanks!

    I need a new printer because my printer chooses when it wants to print or not.

    My printer just isn’t keeping up anymore. I use it a lot and it’s getting very tired. I really want to try sending fabric through.

    My wireless printer is on its last leg. I have a family photo/scrapbook I want to do and could really use a new printer that does a great job on pictures!

  33. 33

    This printer would be perfect for me as a collage artist. I would use it to print textures or pictures to transfer onto canvas for mixed media work.

    This would be an amazing Valentine gift for husband who is a photographer and prints his own work. He needs a new printer so badly!

  41. 41

    My printer never did do color printing well, but it was sufficient…Until my toner cartridges started becoming scarce & expensive, and Costco refills no longer work. I’d love a printer new enough that I can do some fun crafts like this and print in vibrant color with available cartridges.

  42. 42

    Love this headband! Am I too old to wear it? Lol I’d love to win this printer as I would put it to good use!

  43. 43

    What a cute headband! I would love to have a color printer! I would use it for print & cut designs with my Silhouette, as well as printing photos and other items for my memory planner. Thanks for the chance to win :)

    Hi! This headband idea is adorable! I’m wondering if you need to glue it a particular way so that the hearts don’t fall off when you stretch the elastic band.

    I’d love a Canon TS Printer since 1) I don’t have a printer at all; 2) I love the low-profile look; 3) besides using the printer for the basics, I could do fun projects like this one and other graphics projects with my kids!

    Thank you for the opportunity.

    This is so cute and so simple. Going to make this for both my girls.

    I would want a new printer because currently I only have a black and white one, which doesn’t get me too far. I’d use it for crafts with the kids and for our homeschooling activities.
