At the House of Baby Piranha we do not really celebrate Valentines Day been the daughter of a florist Valentines Day has always seemed like a lot of work and a bit of a guise 'look i brought you a huge boquet of roses i must love you alot'. Looking around all the blogs I have a found a new outlook on Valentines Day it is the much simpler side making handmade tokens for those you love and this sits alot better with me. So i have decided to organise a Valentines Day Hunt (much like an easter egg hunt) in our backyard with handmade tokens from me to the kids. I have started by making Valentines Door hangers that can be hang on their bedroom doors. Although i have completed these while the kids are asleep they could easily join in especially with the painting.
You will need
Box Cutter or other suitable cutting blade
Black Marker Pen
Paper (to draw your template on)
1 . Design your template i have used the word Love but you could use any word you like or even your childs name
2 . Cut out your Template
3 . Trace your template onto the thick cardboard and then cut it out with your blade
4 . Paint it
5 . Once dry outline the letters with Black Marker
6 . Add the ribbon for hanging
I have decided i will do these again in the future using the kids names and letting them paint and decorate them themselves I am sure they will have alot of fun.
