It's that time of year where I find
myself reminiscing about decorating valentine boxes and picking out tiny cards
and stickers for classmates. Anyone else? Here's a treat idea that you can make
with your child--perfect for passing out at school.
Use a die cut machine (Sizzix shown
here) or draw and cut out many hearts--2 hearts should be large and 2 small. Mod
Podge the small heart on top of the big heart and then again so they just
overlap at the points to connect them.
Fold the hearts in half so they look
like flapping butterfly wings.
Kids can use the Cool Shot glue gun to
attach a sparkly chenille stem to the center of the butterfly.
Use the cool temp glue gun to perch a
butterfly on top of a small heart box. These heart boxes were found at the dollar
store in a package of 10. Fill the box with your favorite treat. Small stickers
would be good inside too!
For variety, some of the boxes have
tiny felt leaves as well. Children and adults alike would love to have one of
these fly onto their desk! Simple and sweet.
