We made

We spent a Sunday morning crafting and we made some cards, decorated a gift bag and M created a little poster too.

Valentine’s Gift bag

E couldn’t wait to get started and decided he wanted to decorate the gift bag so he could put his Valentine’s gift in it! He started off by tracing around a heart shaped gift tag with a pencil and then stuck a heart shaped sticker inside the heart shape he drew.

After that, he cut up some patterned paper into strips (love themed of course!) and used glue dots (he tried glue first but found it was too messy) to stick these around the gift bag to form a border. Once that was done, he finished the look off with some more heart-shaped stickers.

Valentine’s poster

M wanted to use a foam-shaped heart and make a poster. If you don’t have one, you can easily cut a heart shape out of a foam sheet instead. Using glue we stuck this onto an A4 piece of card before decorating with some heart-shaped stickers.

Valentine’s Cards

With all the crafting going on – I wanted in on the action. E and I decided to make cards. We folded an A4 sheet of card in half before starting our creations.

I cut a piece of ribbon with hearts on to size and stuck it down on the left-hand side of the card

Using a heart shaped gift tag as a template I traced this onto a felt sheet as well as some patterned paper before cutting them out.

I then used glued some tissue paper ribbon around one of the hearts to make a border. Before glueing them all down in various angles and adding some heart shaped stickers and embellishments onto the card.

E stuck a heart shaped gift tag into the middle of his card and used pattern paper to make an edging. He finished this off with his very own bubble writing and coloured it in using felt pens.
