Some Valentine's Day Crafts

So I saw a great idea on One Artsy Mama yesterday. Amy and her little crafter made some festive placemats. I loved the idea so Hazel and I made one today. Well, mostly Hazel did after I cut everything. I probably should have helped her with the glitter a bit more, but she enjoyed it and wants it in her play kitchen.

They are very easy to make. You take a piece of clear contact paper and decorate half of it (or at least that is what we did. I cut the length about 20 inches so the finished width would be about 10 inches.  I let her decorate it with cut hearts, doilies,stickers, and glitter. Then you fold the other half over it and press it to seal and trim if necessary.
We also decorated a felt lace heart I bought at one of the craft stores or dollar store.
I gave her gem stickers and her glitter glue and stickers. She is going to keep this in her play kitchen as a trivet. Again she had a lot of fun and I left her to decorate it how she wanted.
Those are the few things we did today besides our early play date and errands and a nap. Now I need to get ready for the Parish Council meeting at church tonight. Have a great day!!
