Valentine Butterflies

Lillian was invited to a Valentine's Day party where she had to bring eight Valentines.

They would have been even cuter if I'd glued googly eyes on the sucker but I was fresh out of google eyes.

Those are some of the cutest valentine cards that I have ever seen. Love that idea ... and it even looks easy enough that I, the craft-challenged one, could do it!

And here I was feeling accomplished that I had a snickers bar taped onto Harry Potter Valentines and that my children actually spelled their own names correctly...

Sigh.

;)

What! You don't keep a full stock of all the possible craft supplies your children might need?

I'm constantly amazed at the "Easy Craft" ideas in magazines. Yeah, they're easy if you live in the craft store!!

Okay, I'm done. Deep breath.

Janet a.k.a. "Wonder Mom" said...

Goodness, those are the cutest Valentine's I have ever seen...

Zeus said...

I think that's a very cute idea. I agree with Ordinary Mom - the best part is that anyone could make those.

Leslie said...

Those are adorable! I've got to tuck that idea away and use it for Julia sometime. Thanks for sharing it!

Christie said...

very cute!

Jane said...

Very cute and what a sweet idea to have a Valentines party at home! With only 8 to make you can be extra creative!

I'm so glad to see you making homemade valentines. We still do something handmade every year but I think it's a dying art. It is a lot of work when your kid is in a class of 35 so I guess I understand the storebought cards. But still, it's a nice old tradition to give them a personal touch.

Nicole said...

Oh. Those are so cute. My kids love making their own Valentine cards. They would LOVE this.

my 2 cents said...

Aw, those are adorable! What a great idea! :)

Mert said...

strauss said...

How cool are those! I love the lollipop body.

Samantha said...

Oh God, I am soooo stealing that idea for my twin daughters headstart class! Do you mind? LOL Except we're not allowed to bring them candy, but the butterflies in themselves are a wonderful idea!

local girl said...

Those would be perfect for Girlie Girl's class. Thanks for the idea!

chelle said...

Kitschy-Koo said...

Very cute- I love the pipe cleaner antennas!

Julie said...

Perfect! I'm so doing this to send to preschool with Jake tomorrow!

I think this is also a cute idea for kids to give their friends for their birthdays too and not just for Valentines. It's really adorable.

Biker Betty said...

What really cool looking valentine butterflies. Great idea. I enjoy crafting and do a lot of rubber stamping and making cards and stuff.

Jen@BigBinder said...

CUTE!!! I have a 4 year old boy who even said this would be good for his Valentine's Day Party. Great idea!

mommyofmany said...

Waht a creative idea. I am thinking to make my own valentine card at home for party. I think I can choose any shape, but these cards are just so cute.
