Printable Chemistry Valentines + Some Chemistry Love Puns

Craftiments:  Free Printable Chemistry Valentines + a List of Chemistry Love Puns

This past weekend I thought it would be fun to make some geeky chemistry valentines.  I did an internet search for chemistry love puns and quickly realized that there isn't much out there.  I grabbed an old chemistry book and started flipping through for inspiration.  It didn't take long to write a sizable list of puns.  I chose four to make into valentines.  Don't worry, for those who don't speak chemistry I have included a translation.

Craftiments:  Free Printable Chemistry Valentines + a List of Chemistry Love Puns

You are as sweet as a disaccharide of glucose and fructose.
{You are as sweet as sugar}

Craftiments:  Chemistry valentine, you are as sweet as a disaccharide of glucose and fructose.

Uranium + Iodine carved in a tree trunk.
{You and I}

Craftiments:  Chemistry valentine, Uranium + Iodine carved in tree trunk

Valentine, you shine like a carbon allotrope.
{You shine like a diamond}

Craftiments:  Chemistry valentine, you shine like a carbon allotrope.

The last one is an interactive valentine!  The heart really phosphoresces because I painted it with glow-in-the-dark acrylic from Plaid.  I have provided the anatomical heart drawing as a separate file so you can paint it without worrying about staying in the lines.   Once the paint is dry, just cut it out and glue it onto the valentine.  I used three coats of paint to get a bright glow.

Valentine, you make my heart phosphoresce.
{You make my heart glow}

Craftiments:  Chemistry valentine, you make my heart phosphoresce
Glow in the dark heart
