Pinterest Friday - Kids Valentines

Hi all Happy Friday!!!

So I know I didn't make it for Pinterest Wednesday, but I still do have a Pinterest inspiration for you today.  Of course you know that Valentine's Day is next week.  For us that means kids Valentine's for school parties.  My husband and I try not to make that big of deal about it, instead choosing to focus more on loving each other every day.  He does usually get me flowers though!!  So today I am going to share with you a Valentine I made for my youngest.  She is 3 and does have a party at preschool next week.  I found this inspiration on Pinterest of course.  Here is the pin:

So once I saw this, I started saving our toilet paper rolls.  It was actually very quick to get more than enough because there are three girls in our house!!  So here is what I decided to make:

Cute right!!  So I used my Cameo for this project.  I actually made the chevron paper in the Design Studio.  I then print and cut it.  Oh and if you need to know the size of paper to cover the roll it is 6" x 4.25".  I also used the Cameo to cut out the heart for the wings.  I embossed the wings using my Cuttlebug and the love bug folder.  I realize the sentiment tag is a little big.  The intention is to have my daughter trace her name since that is what she is practicing in school and I thought it should be bigger rather than smaller.  I used the Cameo print and cut feature to make the tag.  The antennae are pipe cleaners and I thought wiggly eyes would be fun.  She and I are going to stuff the tube with some Valentine's candy.

So there you have it, hope you enjoyed my knock-off.  I am entering this in two challenges.  The Love is in the air challenge over at The Cuttlebug Spot and the Valentine's for Kids over at My Craft Spot.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend and can't wait to show you my Valentine's for my older daughter!!
