I'm a Sucker for You!

How much fun is it to get a valentine? I still remember making a Valentine's box with my mom in elementary school. We'd take an old shoe box, cover it in wrapping paper and glue on fun decorations. And as much as I love getting a Valentine, I love giving them! So this year, I had to come up with something extra lovely.

What do you think? So fun, right? And so easy! Here's how you do it.

What You'll Need
Scrapbook Paper (Reds and Pinks)
Scrapbook Paper (Green)
Heart Punch
White Glue

What You'll Do
Step 1: Punch hearts in red and pink scrapbook paper for the flower.

Step 2: Tape suckers to the center of the paper hearts.

Step 3: Cut 1-inch strips of green scrapbook paper. On one end, fold paper one inch. Cut leaves.

Step 4: Put glue on inside of leaves and wrap around sucker stick. Repeat for the second leaf.

And you're done! That easy.

I posted this idea...

thanks for stopping by! i'm not usually that creative but i am resourceful.

love the sucker valentines & the splatter valentines from a couple posts earlier. i'm trying to come up with ideas for a valentine party for my grandchildren ages 5,2, 1 1/2 & 1 and 2 of their cousins who are 7 & 5. i may be out of my mind to even be considering this, though ;)
