Happy Valentines day everyone!!!
Valentines day is one of my favorite holiday’s, the first being my BIRTHDAY!!!!! I always call Valentines day the national glitter holiday. Maybe that’s why I love the Holiday so much…. everything has glittler on it!!!!!!
This year I wanted to get a little creative with Maverick. So we made a card for Great Grandma Rose, and I made all my boys really cool candy/car bouquets. Both are so easy and fun. Here is the how to if you need a last min idea.
Mavericks Kissing card.
the first thing you are going to need is paper, paint, wet whips (help with clean up) and an empty tolit paper roll
Next shape your toliet paper roll into a hart and tape it. This will help hold the shape.
it should look something like this when your done.
Now the fun comes. I really just let Maverick do his own thing. If he wanted to mix the colors I let him.
Dip the end in. Make sure you get a lot of paint on your heart so It all shows up.
After Maverick finished stamping the paper, I let it dry. Then the fun for me started. First I started with finding a cute picture of Maverick. From there I traced my hand, cut it out and set it to the side. I cut a hole the size of the photo so Mavericks picture would show through. Then at the wrist of the hand I bent it and then typed it right there. So they hand would go up and down in like a blowing a kiss motion. After that I wrote on the hand blowing kisses your way. And on the card I just wrote a message to Great Grandma. You can really write whatever you would like.
Now for the candy bouquets I took step by step pictures of how I made them. They’re so easy I got everything at the dollar store and the candy from other places mainly Kroger. I just asked everybody what their favorite was and that’s how I went about it. For Maverick I did cars because he’s still too little to eat that much candy. But at the bottom of his I did put a little mini M&M’s because he does like M&M’s. I hope you have as much fun making these as I did.
Everything your going to need. Candy, Tape, tissue paper, scissors, bow, floral foam, vase, balloon, kabab sticks.
fill the bottom of the vase with the small candy you are going to use
make sure when your taping your candy to your stick that they are all facing he same way.
You need to cut you foam into V so it will fit into your vase
If you wrap your tissue paper around your foam if the tissue paper is too long feel free to trim it
Place your candy how you would like it,
And your done!!!! so fun and it only took me like 10 min for each one.
Happy glitter holiday everybody I hope you get lots of love today.
