With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, don’t rush to the store to buy the generic valentines that everyone one else will also have. Spend a day cutting, gluing and making valentines from the heart.
- Card stock
- Construction paper
- Hole punch
- Use card stock to make a half-heart template about 3 inches high and 1 1/4 inches wide. Fold a 12-by-3 1/2-inch piece of construction paper in half vertically, and trace four half-hearts along the fold.
- Cut out hearts; unfold.
- Stack hearts; punch a hole 1/4 inch up from bottom. Position petals to form a flower, making sure holes line up. Secure by applying glue around holes; let dry.
- Write name on a petal. Insert lollipop.
