Homemade Is Where the Heart Is
(page 1 of 5)
Let your creativity shine this Valentine’s Day. You and your child can share a project to create inexpensive, love-filled valentines. Here are designs from Disney Family Fun Magazine, Main Line Art Center and The Handwork Studio.
Choose a design: Feet | Popsicles | Fingerprints | Plant | String Heart
Tracing your feet or hands can create uniquely personal valentines. From Disney Family Fun.
What You’ll Need: Colored cardstock or heavy construction paper, scissors, glue, markers, flat-bottomed rhinestones or small plastic beads, available at craft stores. Look for ones that are heart-shaped.
- Trace your child’s feet onto the paper. If you’d rather not use feet, hands work just as well. If you’re making multiple cards, cut out the shapes to use as a template.
- Glue two feet at the heels to form a heart and use a marker to write a message.
- Glue rhinestones or beads to the toes for polished nails.
One-liner: “You’re my sole mate”; “I get a kick out of you!”; “You are toe nice!”
