Avinash loves making cards for everyone we know and is very into holidays so we have been very busy this week. Love that Valentine's day is all about toddler crafts now, and no longer about awkward bad dates.I have a huge amount of scrapbooking paper lying around and decided to put it to good use. I decided to pull out a big paper pack of Amy Tangerine papers from Michaels. All the fun papers at half the price, and conveniently one sided. Plus there are like three of each design so I have no excuse to hoard the stuff!
I don't care for wonky hearts, so I folded the paper into the middle twice, then traced around half a heart outline (with a little help!), and cut it out. Voila! Perfectly symmetrical hearts. Write on the plain side in white crayon whatever message you want.
And, just for fun I made a few more for a garland. I can't resist making a garland and would probably make a lot more but I have no where left to hang them. I cut out a few more and drew on the patterned side, then painted over in red.
I picked out a few ribbons from my huge stash and pinned the hearts on with some fun glitter clothespins (not hand made, but from Crate Paper).
