Craft with your kids and make these DIY "stained glass" tissue paper & parchment paper Valentine's Day cards! These sweet Valentines are easy and fun to make, and so pretty when they're done.
I was able to wing this with supplies we had around the house, so I hope you've got these or similar materials at hand as well:
- Parchment paper
- Construction/colored paper
- Scotch tape
- School glue
- Markers, stickers, paints, stamps — whatever you want to use to decorate!
They've got a pleasing 3-D textural effect to them that suits the season.
I've included some ways to pop in some easy practice with writing, even for pre- or early readers.
Get your artsy side in gear, and make some cute and friendly Valentines for all your loved ones!
Here's the full tutorial and our fabulous creations:
Variation: If you wanted to keep the "glass" translucent, you could make these as posters or sun-catchers by not folding them and leaving off the back sheet of paper. Then hang as a decoration on your door or, even better, in a sunny window!
Remember: A card cannot have too many ponies.
Be our matey!
