Homemade Valentines

This year for Valentine’s Day I decided to use a technique that we used last year for our  St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock. We created our own unique paper with this “painting method.” All it took was a little vinegar, cardstock and various shades of pink and red tissue paper. 

Lil’man placed tissue paper on the white cardstock and then would “glue” it down using the vinegar.  It was nice and soggy.

Then we set it aside to dry.  Once it was completely dried, Lil’man pulled off the tissue paper. The tissue paper left it’s color behind to create this wonderful water color or tie dye effect.  


Next, we took our colorful paper and added some special notes and stickers.

Lil’man was very excited about the Valentine’s he created and can’t wait to give them to some very special people.

What are you kids doing for Valentines this year?
