Suncatcher Valentines Cards

February 14, 2013 § Leave a comment

These easy valentines cards were our craft on Tuesday – we were late, having spent the morning determined to have pancakes and then discovering the car battery was dead, but when we finally got to tots the cards were leapt upon and there was a short and manic explosion of pink and red fluff and tissue paper as the children and mums made stained glass window valentines to take home!


I had 18 prepared cards with heart shapes cut out, and one heart shaped piece of sticky-backed plastic (contact paper) already in place.

I’d prepared a pot full of snipped up red and fluffy pink wool, tissue paper pieces in various shades of pink and red, and snipped up shiny pink paper streamer. Perfect for little hands to sprinkle onto the sticky plastic!


Once the sticky plastic hearts were covered in their explosions of pink and red bits, a second sticky plastic heart was provided to seal the bits in.


There were a couple of gold pens there to write on them too.

Short but sweet, really effective, just the right thing for a quick and easy craft – and a huge hit!
