Paper Flower Valentines made from little paper hearts!

And JUST LIKE THAT! It’s February!

When my oldest niece (now 15!) Crystal was a Kindergartner, we made these Heart & Lollipop Valentines Flowers and we had so much fun. If you’re looking to create something with your young ones (and old ones for that matter), this is a fun and easy one. They also make for a great card as opposed to the typical cards you find at the local store. This idea came from Martha Stewart’s site, and I tweaked a few things here and there.

Here’s what you need:

  • Card stock or Construction paper
  • Hole punch (I found the standard size to be rather large so I used a smaller one)
  • Scissors
  • Glue (only if you need to, I didn’t)
  • Lollipop
  • Ribbon (this is optional, and I used this in lieu of glue to hold the petals/ hearts together)
  • Pen (I use my favorite colors)

Steps:

1. Use card stock to make a half-heart template about 3 inches high and 1 1/4 inches wide. Fold a 12-by-3 1/2-inch piece of construction paper in half vertically, and trace four half-hearts along the fold.

2, Cut out hearts; unfold.

3. Stack hearts; punch a hole 1/4 inch up from bottom. Position petals to form a flower, making sure holes line up. Secure by applying glue around holes; let dry.  Or you can secure it using a piece of ribbon and tying a bow (this can act as the stem, so I used a sage green) Write name on a petal. Insert lollipop.

About Sammy

I try to look at other resources, options, and if I don’t like what’s available, I often make it. I enjoy many different types of crafts. Wreath making, gift wrapping, card making, making ornaments, floral arrangements, making crepe paper flowers, it’s an endless list! When I am not busy crafting up things up for my sixteen nieces and nephews (yes, sixteen!), I am busy blogging at Seriously, Sammy?! and planning for my wedding. Speaking of which, my latest obsession includes wedding DIYs!!! I currently reside in Los Angeles where I am a sales consultant. I also struggle with a serious weakness for nachos. Seriously, the struggle is real.
