make valentines cards with muffin tin liners

January 29, 2010

I saw an idea for making Valentines cards using paper muffin tin liners in Better Homes and Gardens and thought it would be fun for Juliet and I to try it out. I set up the supplies and we set to work.

Here's one I made for Juliet using craft foam, foam stickers, and mini-muffin tin liners.

Here's another one...

And lastly, I made a row of flowers and used stickers to spell her name. She seemed to like this one the best except for the fact that she informed me that her name was not "Juliet," but instead "Olivia."


(We like to pretend to be book characters at our house!)

Here's a close-up (the pink "u" is kind of hard to see!)

I've saved the best for last: Juliet's first Valentine to me! She had so much fun making her flowers. I will cherish this one forever. As she glued the muffin liner down, she exclaimed, "It's a dandelion!"

The Dandelion Seed

(Which reminds me of a book called The Dandelion Seed by Joseph Anthony.)

Do you have any Valentine day cards ideas to share?

We did this once. I had forgotten all about it until now. We may have to do it again this weekend.

That's so cute! We are going to make more collage hearts next week (, but I also LOVE this idea, which I'll do if I have a chance to pick up a heart shaped muffin tin:

We pretend to be book characters in our house too. And animals. Our animal type changes several times a day. :)
