Did I mention...we made more Valentine's?

Today it was The Sprite's turn to make her Valentine's cards for her class exchange.
Today was also a snow day.  So this was a perfect project for her to do!

Again, offered up a really darling and different idea!
Here's what you'll need:
Colored construction paper, pipe cleaners, glue, scissors, some type of small rolled candy 
or pencils and the butterfly/dot template from

They've provided a full video tutorial online as well as directions here.

I traced and helped cut out the butterflies body.  Then The Sprite did all of her
writing - you know....To: Evan, From: The Sprite.  That kind of thing.

Then I made a few completed cards as examples to show The Sprite what to do next. 
And also because I thought it was so fun to make Valentine's again!

We used a hole punch to make our dot decorations on the butterfly wings.
I figured we needed smaller dots since The Sprite had some writing to do.

Totally cute and good times were had by all on another lovely snow day!
