Found a couple of home-made Valentine ideas for you OR the kids.
- What you need:
- pipe cleaners
- chocolate kiss
- card stock
- hole punch
Start by twisting two pipe cleaners together. Place a chocolate kiss in the center, point side up.
Wrap the four pipe cleaner ends around the top of the kiss, then twist them together.
Bend both pairs of ends into a ring.
Twist the ends together at the top of the ring. Trim the ends.
- For the tags, cut card stock into half-inch strips about 4 1/2 inches long. Use a hole punch to make half-circle holes near one end of the strip. (This will help the folded tag fit onto the ring.) Write a message, then fold the strip around the ring and secure it with glue.
What you need:
1.Cut a 1- to 2-inch heart from craft foam. With a permanent marker, print a short message on the front and the name of the giver on back.
2.Now poke an inch of the pipe cleaner through the bottom of the heart, bend it down, and twist it back around the remaining length of pipe cleaner.
3.Coil the pipe cleaner tightly around the pencil. Then gently pull up on the heart so that part of the coil bobs freely above the pencil, with several loops anchored around the eraser end.
