heart Valentine card crafts

We LOVE hearts for Valentines, but why not get a little creative with the kids this year?! We used the simple heart shape to make this adorable butterfly. And yes, those are candies for the segmented body. {NOTE: Many red cherry chews were consumed during the crafting of this card.}


But I think my favorite is this heart balloon card. It’s so super simple. We just cut three pieces of cross-stitch thread, tied them at the base, cut out three hearts and glued it all into place. Done!

And don’t forget that we’re also giving away dinosaur and owl cello toppers because we “heart” all of our fabulous customers and friends!

Happy weekend everyone and as always, I hope you’re inspired!
