Weekly Pinterest Project: Week 25-Owl Valentines

Happy Monday! I know Valentine’s Day isn’t for a few more weeks, but I’m trying to stay ahead of the game, ha! I wanted to make some fun, non-candy Valentines for Will’s preschool friends and came across lots of cute ideas on Pinterest.  I love these cute ideas but ended up making some owl Valentines.

Here’s what I did:

{1} Create a tear drop shaped template out of cardstock or scrapbook paper (I did this free-handed so it wasn’t perfect but it worked for me).

{2} Trace and cut out tear drops.  I didn’t have any red or pink paper, so I used greens, yellows, and oranges.

{3} Fold over the top of the tear drop and glue down.  Cut out a v shape at the top of the owl’s head.  Glue on eyes (I used buttons) and cut two slits for the pencil to slide through.  I found some cute, cheap pencils at Target (of course!).  Add the pencil and a personalized note.  I wrote, “You’re a hoot!”
