Something different for your Valentine

Here’s something fun to do with those paint strip samples you probably have laying around. Any color will work, but since Valentines day is on the way I decided to use shades of pink.
You’ll need a paper paint sample, yarn, heart punch , hole punch, and some fun stickers.
First use the heart shape punch on the top or bottom color square. Then with the heart that has been punched out, use the circular hole punch at the bottom . Now with the yarn ,tie it to the open shape on square .

Next have fun & decorate!


Addy made one for her sister. She had so much fun creating hers, I decided to use this idea for her class party craft. I’ve been collecting them every time I hit the stores. I won’t tell you which ones…..I don’t want them to find out why they’re suddenly missing all their pink samples!!!
Great book! Thanks Desert Canyon Living!
This would also make a sweet gift for that crafter or decorator in your life. Everyone should have an extra book mark around!

I entered this fun Idea at......

There are so many cute Valentine Ideas there! If I only had more hours in the day!!!

Gorgeous book marks and again I see the Swede in you. I'm THRILLED that you and your daughters are enjoying The Adventures of Nils. I wasn't sure if it would be enjoyable for kids and adults here.--Inger
