Handmade Holiday: Valentine’s Edition

My son made me a proud, crafting momma this weekend. He handed me his class list for the Valentine Party on Tuesday and said, “Mom, I think we should make our cards this year instead of buying them. They’re more special when we make them.” I couldn’t agree more.

 We got our inspiration from the Disney Family Fun site.

My daughter wanted to do flowers, of course.

My son chose a cell phone with lollipops for the antennae.

I think he had ulterior motives to his choice though. Almost the entire time we were working on them, he tried to persuade me that he needed one. He lost this round. In defeat, he and his sister made paper phones and iPods (he wants one of those too). Then they spent the rest of the afternoon playing pretend Angry Birds on their pretend BlackBerries, and loaded up their pretend iPods with pretend music.
