Happy Valentine's Day!!!!

Happy Valentine's Day
from our house to yours!!!

During the snow days last week, my sweet kids made these easy, adorable Valentine's for the senior members of our congregation.  The teens held a Sweetheart Dinner for all the elders and senior members on the Saturday before Valentine's Day.  They asked some of the younger kids to make Valentine's to give out at the dinner.  My kids picked this Valentine to make.

I used my Cricut and the cartridge, Plantin Schoolbook.  We used the flower shape on the cartridge and cut them at 3 inches.  For some of the the flower petals, we chose to italicize the flowers to give a different shape. We used them for the top pedals.  We cut other flowers just as is and used them for the bottom flowers.  to assemble, we stuck the stick of a lollipop through the center of the flowers we had cut out.  Very simple and easy, but the kids thought they looked great.  It was something THEY COULD DO, and we did it!!!  We made close to 50 in one afternoon - which shows you how simple and easy they are to put together!!

We hope you have had a special day with ALL of your loves!!!!
