Valentine's Day Butterfly Cards
I found this idea on Family Fun and adapted it so it was easier and in my opinion far cuter.
I went to the Dollar store and found all the materials I needed for a few dollars.
Foam hearts (or cut paper into hearts)
Glitter glue or other accessories (stickers, sparkle, gem stones etc.)
Place the two hearts to the bottom overlap.
Slip the pencil through the slit. I used glitter pencils that are so cute!
Wrap one pipe cleaner around the top.
Have you child decorate the butterfly. My daughter decided to decorate these with glitter glue.
When dry, flip over and write with a ball point pen your message. I wrote "You make my heart flutter" since I made a butterfly out of hearts.
My daughter is making these for all the girls in her class all by herself and loving it!
I will post what we make for the boys soon.
