Here’s another easy Valentine craft to add to the arsenal! I didn’t make any Valentines last year, but this year the craving to craft has returned! Most of my Valentine ideas come from Disney’s Family Fun magazine website – I loved reading the subscription when I worked in a school library, and I still turn to it for ideas every now and then. Side note: unfortunately, Family Fun has now merged with Parents.com, and their website is pretty terrible – links don’t work, slideshows freeze for no reason, and ads galore pop up all over the place… so it’s not much fun to navigate, but I did it anyway in pursuit of easy craft ideas! (You’re welcome!)
I pinned lots of ideas to my Pinterest boards, so I’m going to go ahead and rope this into my Pinterest Project. Haven’t done one of these in a while!
This lovebird valentine that was too cute to pass up:
Time: 5 minutes
Cost: Free – you probably already have everything!
Supplies: construction paper, scissors. Optional: patterned paper
Cut out the bird template and trace it on the construction paper. I used the template from this website, but you could also freehand it or do a Google image search for “bird outline.”
Cut three hearts about 1-inch tall and fold in half lengthwise. Glue the sides of two hearts together, then glue the other halves onto the bird. Wings!
The cutest part is all the fun bird puns: Will you be my tweet-heart?, You make my heart soar, Love is in the air, or even… Put a bird on it, for all you Portlandia lovers 🙂
I’ve got another valentine up my sleeve, coming tomorrow… stay tuned!
