making valentines

1 Comment

ethan & aidan wanted to make valentines for their classmates.  i have been seeing lots of cool paint chip ideas (mobiles, tags, etc…) on pinterest and thought they would be perfect for valentines.  we used a martha stewart heart craft punch that i picked up at a really great local craft shop, collage.paint chipscolorful paint chip heartsaidan decided to use the punched out hearts in different colors, so we cut cards out of white & brown paper and he decorated them…i really love the ones that have the graduating colors.aidan's finished valentinesfinished cardethan decided that he loved the negative space and cut the individual color strips and then punched a heart in it.  i think this looks pretty awesome & i love that it still looks like a paint chip.  he selected specific colors & color names for his friends.  he had to be a little careful since some of the names were a bit provocative…’loves first kiss’, ‘enchanted coach ride’ and my personal favorite ‘hunny pot purple’.paint chip valentinespaint chip valentines 2finished card 2
