A new Michael’s store is opening in my neighborhood this weekend, and last night I attended an opening event to preview the store. Wow. I definitely know what I’ll be doing this weekend and nearly every weekend after: crafting.
I’ve already started perusing my Pinterest boards for my next projects. Here are four craft ideas on my wish list, all of which would make perfect gifts for Valentine’s Day. (more…)
I think Jenna would have dyed paper hearts all day. After raiding a fair amount of our coffee filters, I finally had to tell her that we were out of hearts and would have to buy more at the store. Here’s how we made them:
First, I cut a bunch of hearts out of coffee filters.
Next, I prepared the dye using food coloring.
Then I let Jason and Jenna dip the hearts into the dye, just like making Easter Eggs.
And then Jenna added a extra drop of red on each one.
They had made over 60 hearts by the time I cut Jenna off. I think we’ll have a Valentine’s Day card-making activity soon!
