A last minute Valentine - homemade, just as it should be. And I may add, no mess. Seriously.
This was an art project that turned into being our Valentine card last year. Now, although I am guilty of popping out a baby and then instantly jumping on the bandwagon of sending out photo holiday cards, I am not organized enough that I would turn around and send out a Valentine card two months later.
Last year was an exception and will stay that way until it's time to make the school valentines to stick in the classmates paper Valentine mailboxes. (Do they still do that? Man, I hope so, talk about self-esteem booster.)
This can be a non-valentine’s project or you can guide the end result into a heart to have an instant card or gift that is just too adorable to throw away (right daddy?)
STEP 1: Take a strong ziplock bag and slide in a thick cardstock piece of 8.5 x 11 paper (You may need to trim down the paper to fit in the bag) STEP 2: Tape the edges of the bag with blue painters tape onto the table. I suggest blue painters tape so that you don’t ruin your table surface or spend time with the GooGone spray for hours after the 5 min art project. STEP 3: Squeeze colors of paint in separate globs onto the paper (Inside the bag) STEP 4: Seal the bag (did I really need to add this step, I truly hope not) STEP 5: Let the little one go to town- really great for ages 9 months- 24 months (I just don’t have the experience doing it with older kiddos…but it could be equally as entertaining) Please note: I totally lucked out on this step and Bennett happened to create a heart with his smearing and patting of the paint…BUT don’t feel ashamed to help “inspire” the heart if that is the end result you are going for! STEP 6: Remove bag from table, open zip, SLOWLY push the paper down off of the plastic (otherwise you will just smear their masterpiece) and then slide the paper out and set aside to dry.
Now, you could end here.
But why, when you can use your copier (or go to a copy place) and make color copies at 50% the size (2 per page) and then cut in half, fold, and make Valentine’s Day cards! Although, I’m normally a matte-finish gal, I chose to print on a heavy glossy stock for the Valentine heart card. It just felt right.
If I had any foresight that I would have a blog and want to write about this little craft project, I would have taken photos of our little Valentines last year. But I didn’t, so you will have to trust me that the end result was adorable.
