For Valentine’s Day this year Kylie, my 5 1/2 year old, wanted to make her own Valentines for her friends at school. I recently got the Cricut Expression, and thought this was the perfect excuse to figure out how to use it!
We started by cutting 2 different sized flowers on double-sided scrapbook paper. Why? Because that’s what we had in our drawer, and it was easier to not waste any paper when you can cut big and small flowers from the same piece. Then we hold-punched the smaller flower (the big flowers had a large enough hole for the sucker stick). We also cut a leaf for the tag of the Valentine.
Assemble by stacking the small flower on top of the large flower, and sticking the sucker stick through the holes.
We taped the leaves/tags on the back since we didn’t make them big enough to be seen if we had hole-punched them as well. Sometimes you just have to improvise, right?!
