Olaf Valentines Day idea tutorial–putting the first valentine together
[It’s without an apostrophe because of the ding-dong-dang limits set by wordpress for a title. It will thenceforth be: Olaf Valentine’s Day idea tutorial.]
This post is the ‘show-how’ post.
After you’ve seen how to put one together, the rest will be a breeze.
Let’s get started.
Here’s the first Olaf Valentine’s Day idea completed.
[So cute. Just so cute.]
There are four valentines per printable page.
It works to leave the tiny hearts suspended–or–you can connect them with a very fine sharpie marker, a ball point pen or a crayon, I suspect.
[I’ll show you that in a minute.]
Here’s the show-how:
–Print the valentines (4/page)
[Please print the first one on a piece of copy paper just to make sure it looks like you want it to.]
–Cut the 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper into quarters
–If you leave the hearts suspended, all you need to do is to get your little one to sign their name/tape a heart on and it’s done.
It’s simple. And it’s done.
If you want to add an extra ‘cute’ to the valentine…
…draw a loop from each heart–8 total.
[That will take about 4 seconds.]
Draw a string ‘through’ the loops.
[That will also take about 4 seconds.]
Tape a chocolate treat to the card.
Sign the card.
And that [drum roll, hand clap, jubilant skip, hummity-hum, cartwheel] is idea #1.
Here’s the printable.
[Just to make sure you realize, it’s the same one that was posted yesterday.]
It would be all kinds of delightful if you wanted to send me a pic of you and your little one(s) putting these together. All kinds of delightful.
One down, three to go.
