Being a part of such a great blogging community, I was overwhelmed with the wealth of ideas for Valentine Cards … so instead of settling on ONE single way, I decided on the broader idea of using Honor’s artwork to create her Valentine’s. This way
she was we were able to explore lots of the art mediums we love!
For about a month I saved her doodles and paintings, as well as trying some things. I cut the artwork into hearts and then, together, we glued the hearts on to homemade cards (cardstock folded in half for the larger cards, or cut into thirds and then folded in half for the smaller ones for school). I printed out a simple Valentine greeting which we glued on the inside.
There was QUITE a variety! The following shows the different ways that were used to create over 40 Valentines!!!
idea from The Chocolate Muffin Tree, Heart Blotto Valentines
For these, I actually cut the heart shapes first and had her paint on one side of the heart. We then folded the heart, to squish the fresh paint, and create beautiful heart blottos! (or we could just get a psychology-y and ask, “What do you see?”)
