Last night was another last minute scramble, this time to make sure that Nana Bear's Valentine's and class gifts were all ready for this morning. We started on most things weeks ago, but really the final details and last minute ideas just bogged me down. Nana Bear's homemade valentine's were simple enough: red construction paper folded in half and a white heart shaped doily glued down the middle inside. Nana got to decorate the cover anyway she wanted. We did 22 over three separate weekends. She can only do 6 or 7 before she gets tired. I had wanted her to do some for the family as well, but it was just too much for her overall.
I had found a great Instructable to make paper flowers and with a modification or two, I embarked on making flowers bouquets for her teachers. While the flowers were easy to make, when thinking of trying to do 24 of them at such a late hour, they became almost a herculean task. I ended up doing 12 and saving the rest to do today for my grandmother and mother.
But I am overall pleased with the results.
Happy Valentine's Day! Hope it is filled with lots of love and crafting.
