Valentine's Day Craft

Moms, are you looking for a "snow day" craft? This is the perfect idea for valentine's for the girls in your child's class, and for your little princess too! Who doesn't LOVE a homemade valentine?! A princess who likes to read as much as Belle does can always use a pretty bookmark. With long pipe cleaner stems that tuck neatly between the pages, these bookmark roses are made out of pretty paper hearts.

You'll need:

Heart Template
Scrapbook paper
Glue dots
Green pipe cleaners


1. Print out the Heart Template and cut out the heart.

2. For each rose, cut out four hearts from scrapbook paper using the heart template.

3. Turn one of the hearts upside down to resemble one of the center petals of a rose bud, and use a glue dot to stick the top of a pipe cleaner stem in place, as shown. Place a second heart on top of the first, matching up all the edges and pressing down firmly to adhere it to the glue dot. Use your fingertips to curl the tips of the hearts.

4. Fold each of the remaining two hearts in half vertically. Fold back the rounded sides of the hearts, as shown, and then fold down the tips.

5. Sandwich the sides of the center petals between the folded hearts, using glue dots to hold them in place.

6. Take the ribbon and tie it around the stem right under the rose with a bow, or just a double knot to let the ribbon hang down like streamers.
