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!
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 don’t really do much for valentines, and the boy is too uninterested aged 8 in girls. Love the door hanging, so simple and effective
No I’ve given up too with a husband I never see!! It’s always been special though as it was my Papa’s birthday
Some lovely craft ideas!
Great ideas. I love your ribbon heart hanger!
Thank you – I was rather pleased with it too
We’ve not done much yet, it’s been a bit busy! But, need to sort out all the class valentines and teacher gifts this week… It’s a big deal over here 🙂
Oh blimey – really!! I don’t do Teachers gifts for Christmas, certainly not Valentines – that’s tradition that can stay that side of the pond 🙂
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!!
It was only an afterthought as I’d cut out way too many hearts!!
So beautiful! I making heart jelly!
Thanks – heart jellies look fab too
Love all your cut out hearts for Monkey to craft with and the hanging is great!
Thank you – I was really pleased with the result
I love your little heart hanger, it’s so pretty. It would be fab made with felt too!
Oh yes – that would be a good idea – need to buy some felt for our craft cupboard
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
Thank you for your post, I really enjoyed it.
