Paper Valentines

At the end of last week Monkey and I were feeling the need to do something with paper, we decided to make some paper Valentines.  I found some red card in the craft cupboard, along with a heart-shaped cookie cutter.  Monkey decided that I was in charge of shapes and cutting, we would be in charge of sticking!

Paper So I set to work, drawing round the cookie cutter and cutting out our paper hearts.  I found some pink paper to add to our paper valentines too.

Then it was over to Monkey, he decided he wanted to make some cards.  Oh is one for me?  No Mummy, no!  Oh 🙁

He had a great time making his cards, picking which colour to use, making Valentines cards for the other women in his life!

So I wonder whether Monkey’s paper Valentines will bring a smile to a few people’s faces next week?

While he was busy with his cards I decided to do something myself.

I found a piece of ribbon and made a little hanging for our kitchen.  I’m rather pleased with it.

What will you be making for this February 14th?

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school.We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds.We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. I really must try and do something for Valentine’s Day and this is a great way to get children involved…love your heart hanger too…I love hearts so would be really happy to have that hanging in my house!!

  2. I love the hanging hearts in your kitchen. This could also be used throughout the house as well. Simple to make and it looks great. It would be a really nice addition to the guest bedroom as well. Also, BTW, I love Ferrari’s too! LOL
