Diana Ross Valentines
So this is what we are working on this week. I don’t want Lily to feel like a Valentine’s Day is a chore so we just work on a few love messages each day.
Between the girls, there are about 64 to handout.
Last year, post-Valentine’s Day clearance, my sister and I picked up these a few bags of sheriff badges at a Target in California. There were 16 badges in each bag for about 25 cents. My middle sister made us some printable "Stop! in the Name of Love" cards. I cut a small slit on the card and inserted the badge.
Lily is pleased with them and I am happy they coincided with her interests in horses and cowgirls. When I was researching cowboy and cowgirl Valentines I came across a wonderful post over at the Vintage Valentine Museum with so many cute ones.
I thought I would also share the love bug valentines my nephew made with “on clearance” cherry candy canes.
These love bugs use Family Fun’s new butterfly template and Allan’s Big Foot Cherry candy canes (certified peanut free) which were available in January at the Bulkbarn on great reduction.
1. Trace and cut the Family Fun template onto red or pink cardstock
2. Cut slits for candy cane body
3. Use pipe cleaners for antennae (twist around the candy cane)
3. Address and decorate with Valentine stickers or foamies
5. Admire your work! (and make another!)
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by,
