I consider myself fairly lucky that today was my first experience in the four plus years of parenting to be puked on. Yep, today was the day.
So besides doing a ton of laundry and reading we embraced Valentine’s Day. I am not much for the actual holiday, but I do like to reflect on LOVE and those that we hold close to our hearts. Plus, it’s just a darn good reason to craft.
We got out the supplies:
Thanks Haba for scoping the sales last year!
I started thinking about the garland above. I bought a bunch at Target last year in the dollar bins. Anyone could make something similar.
I’ve seen the technique for easy glitter application on this Martha Stewart. You need a Xyron machine, which essentially makes anything a sticker. I fist saw one used on this awesome idea, and bought mine on sale at Joann’s. Kids love it. Plus you can use it on fabric!
Peel the backing away and dip sticky sticker side in glitter. I would avoid using textured paper, we did and as you can see the sticker part pulled away a bit. Fine glitter would work better too. But you get the point. You can also buy glitter/foamy paper at Micheal’s if you don’t want the mess or the machine.
We stuck the hearts on lollipop sticks to give as Valentines. Maybe after nap we’ll add some ribbon or gems.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
