It’s month 2 for the #bostikbloggers and this month is Valentine’s Day themed. So what better then to spend time with the love of my life making romantic crafts!
With our lovely box of craft goodies sent from Bostik we started by making Valentine’s Day cards. One for Baby Bear (obviously) and one for Jaxson’s good friend Sophia. I just received a video from Sophia’s mum of her opening her Valentine’s Day card and it’s so cute! She loved it – job well done!
We were suppled with 2 blank cards and envelopes, but obviously these are pretty easy to find in shops. I recommend trying The Range for this sort of stuff.
I let Lamb loose with his felt tip pens, red and pink for obvious reasons. We then used the glitter pens from our Bostik craft box to decorate further. Lambs favourite part of making the valentines cards was sticking hearts all over the cards and envelopes. He’s obsessed with stickers!
The great thing about home made Valentine’s Day cards is you will most likely have everything you need at home and won’t need to buy many materials. A piece of plain paper and pink felt tip will do the trick! However , if you want to get a little more creative why not use heart stickers, glitter pens and coloured card to create something more special.
The second craft we made was a heart hanging decoration. In our craft box from Bostik we had a wooden heart shape and lots of hearts stickers and shapes. As Lamb loves sticking I thought this would be a really fun activity for him. I was right. He had so much fun decorating the heart block.
Something like this is super easy to do and like with the Valentine’s Day cards, you can pretty much make this from things you already have in your house. You could use an old cereal box to create the heart shape decoration. Then collect any pink and red materials to cut into little heart shapes to decorate with. As long as you have something sticky on both sides like the Micro Dots you can decorate as much as you like with plenty of different materials.
Why not cover a heart shaped piece of card in tin foil and then decorate with pink glitter?
There are lots and lots of different hanging decorations you can come up with. Hopefully what we have made will give you a little inspiration to make your own.
We would love to know what fun things you’ve been doing this Valentine’s Day.
