Happy Valentine’s Day!
This year I actually sort of feel like a Valentine bum. Usually our apartment is be-dazzled in hearts and I have crafted up a storm of pink goodness to mail out to friends and relations…but this year…it just didn’t happen. What DID happen though, was the boys made some pretty rockin’ valentines.
Andrew decided to make pop-up Valentines. He was VERY particular about what parts of the Valentine would pop up and how it would work. He made 14…which for pop-up, homemade Valentines is A LOT…and he still had to be picky about who he could give them out to.
Isaac stamped hearts and x’s and o’s onto paper which I cut out, and attached a mini-photo-collage, seen below, on the back. There were only enough of these for grandparents. So I had to rig something quick for his classmates.
Here’s more of Andrew’s Valentines:
He used my alphabet stamps to stamp some of the words. This one is for his teacher.
Inside is a little robot holding a heart.
You can see here that the heart and the words are popping up.
And these are for Isaac’s classmates and teachers:
A simple photo collage that I stapled to the back of Winnie-the-Pooh valentines.
And that’s the scoop! Have a lovely, lovely Valentine’s day!
