It’s Valentine’s Day in a few minutes time. We did a Valentine craft today. It is a Valentine’s Torch.
While we were thinking of what we wanted to project on the wall, I asked my boy what he knows about Valentine’s Day. His answer is simply CUPID! I do not know how to draw a cupid. Thank goodness we have a printer that we can simply google for a picture of cupid and print it out!
To see how you can turn these printouts:
Into a torch shown below:
You’ll need to check out this short 4 mins video of how my boy turned a simple printout into an amazing torch! 🙂 The only thing I did was to cut the objects out for him. Enjoy!
The genius part of her uses the floor tiles as a 'ruler' to measure and cut the material into smaller pieces. See? When crafting, all you need to be is CREATIVE 🙂 No ruler? Improvise. The floor tiles can even act as one! That's totally NEW to me 😀
She got lots of earrings and bracelets from Bali ready
Do you have difficulty making a heart? I mean, do you find it hard to draw a heart that looks even on both sides? You might find that one side is bigger than the other or loop sided or anything else. It is actually very simple to make a symmetrical heart shape. Let’s do it now 🙂
Get a piece of paper.
Cut out the shape of half a heart.
There, your symmetrical heart shape. It can never be too ugly no matter what 😛
If you love someone, put their name in a circle, instead of a heart, because hearts can break, but circles go on forever.

If music be the food of love, play on.
It takes more then lace and ribbons,
And lovely verses too,
To make a Valentine thats nice enough for you. It takes a world of special thoughts,
Tucked into every line,
And that’s exactly what you’ll find inside this Valentine.
At the touch of Love every one becomes a poet.
Love may not make the world go round, but I must admit that it makes the ride worthwhile.
— Sean Connery
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Let’s make a lovely paper heart garland 🙂
Paper Heart Garland
You'll need a long strip of coloured paper.
Cut a heart shape on one end of the strip.
Fold the heart shape and fold the rest of the paper strip.
Once you are done folding, cut along the heart shape. Be careful not to cut on the sides of the heart.
Unfold it and you'll get yourself a lovely paper heart garland 🙂 You may want to use it to decorate your Valentine's Day card, notice board or basically anything! This Valentine's Day.. let the hearts flow 😀

This nice little paper basket can be used to place little gifts for the little ones.
Woven Heart Basket.
You'll need two different colours of papers. Fold and cut so that each piece has 3 loops.
Starting with the bottom 1/3 loop of the green piece, weave it through the first red loop, insert the second red loop through this green piece and weave this green piece through the 3rd red loop again.
Do the opposite way for the middle loop of the green piece. First weave the right red loop through this green loop, then weave this middle green loop through the middle red loop and then weave the red loop through this green loop again.
If done correctly, your basket should be able to open this way.
Using a craft scissors, cut a red strip and weave a green strip through it as the handle of the basket.
